Victoria McDonough will always remember the “good times” with the Bridgewater State University women’s lacrosse team: dinners with teammates, spring break trips, and wins, of course. But she will also remember being a part of a family – “We really grew closer and closer every day,” said McDonough.  

This family – the Bridgewater State women’s lacrosse program – was instrumental in helping the Marshfield, Massachusetts native flourish on the lacrosse field, including as a first-year student-athlete, who was named Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) Rookie of the Week four times. 

Noontime’s Senior Salute: Nicole Pacheco (Framingham State)


Before her final season with the Framingham State University women’s lacrosse program concluded earlier this year, Nichole Pacheco celebrated a special milestone by netting her 100th goal during her team’s 23-13 victory against Johnson & Wales University. 

The goal itself was a fitting ending for Pacheco, who has helped the Rams enjoy a great deal of success these past few years while vying for the team’s initial conference tournament championship.
