The women’s head lacrosse coach said one of the goals for this season is to have a more balanced offensive and defensive sides of the field.

The Riverhawks will play their first game of the 2023 campaign on March 15 at Harford Community College. 

Defender Erin Tully, a second-year radiology student, said she’s “just happy to be playing again [and] I think it’s going to be a good season. So I’m excited.”

Last season the Riverhawks lost 22-15 on May 14 to the Onondaga Community College Lazers in the National Junior College Athletic Association Semifinals. The team finished 6-2 in the regular season. “And hopefully, we’ll [be] more balanced this year than we [were] last year. We definitely need to improve defensively.”

Last season, Midfielder Madison Hobbs led the Riverhawks in the regular season with 37 points—scoring 19 goals and assisting on 18. Midfielder Elsa Skinner led the regular season in scoring with 26 goals. Goalkeeper Kaitlyn Evans started all regular season and postseason games and had a 12.04 goal average.  

Attacker Bailey Makarovich, a second-year transfer studies student, noted Griffiths “is really good at putting people together and working with people.”

Makarovich said she’d like to beat the Harford Community College Fighting Owls.
