Playing good in the neighborhood

McCauley finds success on lacrosse field after illustrious multi-sport career

(Continued)

Coaching a 3-2 team on the new season, Batchelder knows she will need her upperclassmen to keep things going.

“Our two losses (to North Andover and Ipswich), in my opinion, are very strong,” says Batchelder. “And they are losses we can learn from and move forward from. We are just getting into league play, we’ve only had two league games. And after (April) vacation our league play really sets up. I think we should do really well and we are excited for the rest of the schedule.”

A two-sport athlete, McCauley (who also co-captains with fellow seniors Carly Kouvaris and Meri Adsit) will be playing field hockey at Merrimack College come the fall and credits her team’s current practice regiment and the communication within as the key to their success at the moment.

“We had really strong seniors in the past couple of years,” says McCauley. “So I knew that I had to step up as an upperclassman and help out the new kids as well. (And) as upperclassman working with a lot of the returning players, we all know how each other play.”
