Yesterday, the girls varsity lacrosse team honored and celebrated the life and legacy of Lindsay Bugbee Crosby, a beloved member of the Deerfield Academy and Westminster School communities.
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 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.
This year marked the 3rd Annual LBC Bowl game. Although the two schools were unable to compete this year, they continue to celebrate and honor Lindsay.
After the first LBC Bowl game in 2019, 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!
The bowl has lived in Deerfield since its inception in 2019. Both teams are looking forward to facing off again in 2021 for the 4th Annual LBC Bowl.
