CHESHIRE – The Cheshire girls lacrosse team, which enters its 20th season as a varsity program this season according to coach Dan Warburton, will earn the program’s 250th win with its first victory of 2015.
Cheshire opens its season on Saturday at Conard at 10 a.m.
“The thing that has always made Cheshire great is we have a strong group of players,” Warburton said in an earlier interview. “Arlene Salvati started the program and built up a strong, solid foundation. That made it an easy transition for me when I took over.
“We might not have always had superstars on the team, but these kids always work hard and give it everything they have to be successful.”
Since the CIAC started sanctioning girls lacrosse in 2004, the Rams have had one state championship appearance, losing 9-8 to Greenwich in the 2012 Class L final. The Rams have won the Southern Connecticut Conference tournament title the last four seasons.
