The 2021 Exeter girls varsity lacrosse team finished the 2021 spring campaign in impressive fashion: A 13-1 record, culminating in a big 16-7 victory over Andover on Phelps Stadium. USA Lacrosse recognized Big Red's special season by honoring a program-record seven seniors with All-American or All-Academic status and the Jackie Pitts Award.

Tia Reaman ’21, Tessa Shields ’21 and Marymegan Wright ’21 each received USL All-American honors, while Rosemary McIlroy ‘21, Charlotte Lisa ’21 and Savi Keidel ’21 were named to the USL All-Academic team. Caroline Luff ’21 was named the Jackie Pitts Award winner, recognizing high school seniors who go above and beyond in service to their team, school, and community.

“After 16 months of restrictions, setbacks and obstacles, it is so fantastic that our team was recognized in this way,” said Big Red head coach Christina Breen. “We had an enormous senior class, all of whom brought so much to our team. It's amazing to see this group recognized as US Lacrosse award winners given all the hard work and dedication they have shown. We can't wait to follow the college careers of our players.”

USA Lacrosse determines All-Americans to be a player who exhibits superior skill, game sense, sportsmanship and performs as one of the best players in the country. All-Academic honorees exhibit exemplary lacrosse skills, sportsmanship, and represents a high standard of academic achievement.
