WAUSAU – The Wausau Wolfpack high school girls lacrosse team will open their 2023 season with games against Waunakee and Verona on Saturday in Waunakee. The games will be played at 1 p.m. and 2:45 p.m. on Saturday, April 1.

The team will be led by first-year head coach Bri Marcott and features a group of eight seniors.

“I’m excited for this season,” said Marcott. “Our eight seniors have been with the program for multiple years, some since the very beginning. To be a part of this full-circle moment for them and to spend time with these ladies is quite special.”

The team finished the 2022 season with a record of 8-9.

“We hope to flip our record and make it further into the playoffs this season,” said Marcott. “This is a team that supports and rallies around each player, regardless of the score. I think they will have a really fun season playing and supporting each other.”

The Wolfpack will travel to play Oregon at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 5. The team participates in the Bay Valley Conference, which stretches the state from Hudson to Bay Port.
