The Young Quaker’s Girls' Lacrosse Team (GLAX) was newly introduced to the Young Quakers program in the 2013-14 academic year. The success of this first season can be largely attributed to the level of engagement across the Penn Women’s Lacrosse team and the coaches.  The Women's Lacrosse players lead sessions at UACS school sites and at Penn.  Sessions focus on team building, one on one mentorship, and lacrosse skills.  The Young Quakers travel to several Women's Lacrosse home games to support and cheer on their Big Quakers. 

The following team standards guided the on-field and off-field curriculum:

  1. Team First 
  2. Accountability
  3. Effort
  4. Mental Toughness
  5. Energy and Enthusiasm
  6. Effective and Meaningful Communication

The season included two games and one half-time exhibition intrasquad scrimmage. At the end of the season, 93% of the Girls' Lacrosse Team at Comegys said they would like to continue playing lacrosse.
