Varsity Girls Lacrosse
My goal as a coach is to teach young women the importance of dedication and discipline through lacrosse so they can relate it to every other aspect of their life. I believe if they display dedication and discipline in everything they take on, they will be successful in anything they take on.

GA's varsity girls lacrosse plays on Oberkircher Field, a 180 x 300 feet turf field located in Sisters' Woods.
Sisters’ Woods is home to varsity field hockey, varsity girls lacrosse, and varsity girls soccer programs. It opened in the fall of 2010 when two new artificial turf fields wereinstalled — Oberkircher Field and Jordan Field. The fields are identical in size at 180 x 300’ and each has their own scoreboard with clock and home and away scoring areas. There is a small spectator seating area next to Oberkircher Field (field closest to the walking path), while Jordan Field has a natural berm where spectators can view the contest from a short height above field level. The fields can be lined for lacrosse, soccer and/or field hockey. Goals for each of those sports are available as well. Portable restrooms are on-site for participant and spectator use. Access to the fields can be attained by parking in the Carey Stadium Lot and using the brick pathway to Sisters’ Woods, or by parking on the GA campus, crossing the Wissahickon Creek on foot to the brick pathway that leads to the fields. There is a donkey set up alongside Oberkircher Field where the scoring table and video setup can be placed. Germantown Academy has hosted many soccer and lacrosse tournaments for all ages on Sisters’ Woods.

Caroline Antonacio '21 has been named as a 2018 Maverik National High School Lacrosse All-American and has been selected to attend the Maverik National Lacrosse Classic to be held July 16-19, 2018 in Frederica, DE.
The school year may be over, but the accolades keep coming for the Germantown Academy student athletes that excelled during the spring season.
Germantown Academy is proud to announce the newest class of its Athletic Hall of Fame. The class of eight individuals, one former coach, and two teams will be inducted in a special ceremony to be held on campus on Thursday, November 8, 2018.
On Monday, June 4, 2018, Germantown Academy honored 33 college-bound senior student-athletes in a special ceremony in the McVeigh Community Room.
The season has ended and All-League teams have been announced. All that is left is to find out who won the team awards in their respective sport.
The school year is winding down, but before students leave for summer vacation some recognition is in order.
After trailing by only two at the half, GA was outscored 11-4 in the second half and fell to the Irish, 18-9.
Created in 1995, the Germantown Academy Athletic Hall of Fame has seen more than 100 alumni student-athletes, coaches, and special friends inducted into its historical annals. We will be inducting the next class into the Athletic Hall of Fame on November 8, 2018, and your assistance is needed.
