NCAA Lacrosse: Stanford Women’s Lacrosse Head Coach Amy Bokker Looks To Build On Team’s 2013 Success And Push “Deeper Into The Postseason”
While Bokker was excited about her team’s success, she notes the team’s sights are set even higher for next year and believes her team is equipped with the experience and talent necessary to compete deeper into the postseason.
Stanford women’s lacrosse head coach Amy Bokker began the 2013 season with one specific message she hoped her young team – consisting of 19 underclassmen – would embrace: “Get better every day.”
“The younger players showed they had the drive to never settle and keep competing and not give up during the game, and competed for the full 60 minutes,” Bokker said. “Our older players really showed good leadership and poise in times when the game was on the line.”
“There’s a lot of self-motivation, they drive themselves,” Bokker said. “They had a taste of what that is like this year, so I think that is motivating in and of itself and leaves them hungry for more.”
Stanford will return all but two players – graduated seniors Carolyn Bradley and Elizabeth Adam – and welcome a talented recruiting class consisting of 10 freshmen and one rising sophomore transfer that will provide additional depth to the experienced roster.
“Having the core of our scoring threats, defenders and goalie be in the senior class, the expectation of leadership will be pretty high, and again for them to help the large freshman class coming in understand what our goals are and how to get on board with that early,” Bokker said.
As many of the players head home for summer break, Bokker believes her team will continue to embrace the “get better every day” mentality and will return to campus ready to challenge for another MPSF championship and a deeper run in the NCAA Tournament.
