Today, the members of Central Bucks West High School's girls lacrosse team were informed that Rebecca Cartee-Haring, was no longer their coach. We were given the news with no explanation why this was happening.
This news was heartbreaking because this was the woman who had motivated, supported, and lead the team into an incredible 2018-2019 season. There had been many people who doubted the abilities of the team, thinking that our season was going to be a flop. Coach Cartee saw the qualities that allowed players to excel on the field. We used this to create the dynamic of a true team. "Do what you can and bring what you have": these are the words our team lived by.
Our team is a family. Removing our coach is destroying a program that has united over 40 girls together. In just a year, Coach Cartee has managed to make CBWGLax not just a high school team, but a group of lifelong friends that share the love of the game.
Not only is Coach Cartee a coach, but she is also a teacher at west and has been for 12 years. Her students will have the same kind words to say as the girls on the CB West lacrosse team. Cartee has tough love. You have to work. She has taught us that nothing comes easy and you have to work for results.
We want results. We want our program back and our program is nothing without Coach Cartee. It might seem small, but every bit of love and support helps. By signing this petition, you are supporting Cartee and the members of the CB West girls lacrosse community and sends a message that our Coach should be reinstated.
