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.

And that eagerness – and readiness, too – paid off as she was recently named the new women’s basketball coach at Fitchburg State University.
