Hard workers, good listeners, smart players
The Summit’s girls’ lacrosse program may have started with humble beginnings, but since the team advanced to the state finals in 2007, the program has been growing.
Hard workers, good listeners and smart players have fueled the program’s dogged approach. When it comes to scheduling, the philosophy is to create a rigorous lineup that includes Division I opponents.
In 2015 and 2016, the Silver Knights advanced to the Division II state semifinals after winning regional titles and MVC championships. Summit has won the MVC from 2015-2019. In 2019, the Silver Knights reached the regional final.
