P.S. 149 Girls Host their Merrimack College Pen Pals
Since September 2014, the girls on the Merrimack team have been partnered with one or two girls on the Truth girls team as pen pals. Letters are sent back and forth between the two schools, discussing things like lacrosse, academics, family life, and friends. The Truth Tigers had the chance to meet and play with their pen pals when the Merrimack team traveled down from Massachusetts to hold a clinic for our team on Friday, April 3rd.
During the clinic, stations covered shooting, footwork, and passing and throwing skills and ended in a giant game of lacrosse capture the flag. After a great afternoon of playing together, HLL had the opportunity to go out to Adelphi University to see the Merrimack team in action. The HLL girls were able to watch a high level, Division 2 game and speak with the girls after about their game and their lives as a student-athletes in college. HLL is beyond thankful for this opportunity, especially to head coach Michael Daly, assistant coach Jen Fox, and the entire team for their support.
