Deerfield Academy and Westminster School varsity girls lacrosse teams celebrated and honored the life of Lindsay Bugbee Crosby, a beloved member of both school communities, in the first Annual LBC Bowl on Saturday, April 27 at the Westminster School.
The LBC Bowl was conceived as an opportunity for both school communities to honor Lindsay’s love of competition and unite every year in their shared respect, appreciation and recognition of Lindsay’s impact to young women within so many different communities and the world of lacrosse.
Every year, when the Deerfield and Westminster girls varsity lacrosse teams play each other, they will compete for the LBC Bowl. The inscription on the bowl reads:
Coach, mentor, and dear friend of both Deerfield (2013-2015) and Westminster School (2015-2018). To honor Lindsay and her love for competition, lacrosse, and her meaningful impact on both school communities and lacrosse programs, Westminster and Deerfield Lacrosse play for the LBC Bowl each spring.
After the first LBC Bowl game, Lindsay’s husband, Evan Crosby delivered the LBC bowl to the Big Green team. More specifically, he handed the trophy to senior Mae Emerson to receive it for the entire Deerfield team. Lindsay Crosby was Mae’s first lacrosse coach and taught her the sport she’s come to love. A perfect illustration of Lindsay’s impact on young female athletes and that her love of passionate competition through sport lives on!
Many thanks to the Westminster community for orchestrating a special and memorable day.
