With longer days and warmer weather comes the start of Montrose spring sports. This year, Montrose is offering four sports and seven teams to students. 



There are three levels of Montrose lacrosse which means that anyone can participate regardless of skill level. The middle school and JV teams are great for building your skills and learning the rules of lacrosse. These teams are super fun to be on as they are relaxed but also competitive. The Varsity lacrosse team is looking forward to an exciting and competitive season with eleven games scheduled. The team is led by returning coaches Osbourne, Bettinelli, and Moran and captains Olivia Mahoney ‘23, Shannon Mahoney ‘24, and Kenzie Cassler ‘24. With a strong group of returning and new players, the lacrosse team is sure to make Montrose proud!

The softball program at Montrose has been steadily growing with an introduction of the JV team last year. This year, the JV team has around 6 games scheduled for the season, a vast improvement from last year! No matter your skill level, there is a place on one of the teams for you. The Varsity team has many returning players while also welcoming a strong group of new players. Coaches Hogan, MacCarthy, and MacIsaac lead the team, along with captains Anna Hvidsten ‘23 and Anna Proscia ‘23. The team has 11 games scheduled for this season, hoping to secure another year on the IGC Championship banner!

Outdoor track is a great way to keep in shape during the spring! Track is a no cut sport; everyone is able to join no matter how great of a runner you are. There is a Varsity and JV team, but everyone practices together. Within track there are many different events you can participate in: sprinting, long-distance running, throwing, jumping, and hurdling. Another great thing about track is the meets. Although they can be long, they are also a great team-bonding experience. Cheering on your teammates as you watch them perform is a great experience. The meets are also a great way to put what you’ve done in practice to the test! Track is also a great sport if you want to try something new as there are many different events you could try out. Overall, spring track has helped me stay in shape, but also have fun too. Regardless of how good of a runner you are, there is a place for everyone on the track team! 


Montrose is also offering self defense after school on Thursdays led by Mrs. Stearns, P’24.
