Lacrosse - Varsity Girls
About the Program:
Thayer Girls' Varsity Lacrosse is one of 13 teams that compete in the Independent School League (ISL) and is part of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC). Our comprehensive schedule starts in March and runs through May each spring, and our home games and practices take place on our main turf field on campus. Head Coach Anni McDonough Zukauskas '94, who played collegiately at the University of Rochester, coached the team from 2000-2007 and rejoined the staff in 2014. She is a member of both the Thayer Athletics Hall of Fame and the University of Rochester Hall of Fame. She has prepared student-athletes to play at the next level at schools like Northwestern University, Vanderbilt University, Colorado College, University of North Carolina, and Brown University to name a few.
