Kaitlyn Carney and Stella Regan; 2 of the Ten Girls Lacrosse Players to Watch for 2022 Hockomock League has posted their listing of the Ten Players to Watch for 2022 for Girls Lacrosse. We shared the info on Kaitlyn Carney and Stella Regan of FHS and provide the link to the full listing.


Carney finally got to step onto the lacrosse field for Franklin last season and showed off the skills that have made her a Div. I recruit. The James Madison-commit tied for the team lead with 36 goals last season and added 11 assists while bringing her trademark intensity to the middle of the field. Strong, quick, and willing to be physical in the attack, it was hard to keep Carney out from the middle of the crease and her creative finishing meant that she was a threat to score any time that she was around the cage. She was also unfazed by the biggest stage, scoring a pair of goals against Westwood in last year’s state title game. With the array of attacking talent at Franklin’s disposal, goals are going to be spread around and Carney’s ability to draw attention from multiple defenders will open up scoring chances for her teammates. Franklin is back to having one of the toughest schedules in the state to help prepare it for another deep tournament run and Carney is one of the dynamic players that could help win a first state title for the Panthers.


One of the best facilitators in the Franklin offense, Regan creates as many chances for her teammates as she does for herself, and her endless supply of energy in the midfield makes her a key player on both ends of the field. The Colby College commit scored 28 goals last season and assisted on 32 others, providing key passes for the wide array of attacking talent that the Panthers throw on the field. A quick, athletic player, who now seems to be fully healed from the broken leg she suffered as a sophomore, Regan can beat players off the dodge and then pick out the perfect pass to get teammates clean looks at goal. Coupling her speed in transition with her patience and willingness to move the ball against a set defense makes her vital to Franklin’s balance on offense. She knows when to push and when it is time to step back and keep possession. Coming off an appearance in the state title game, expectations might never be higher around the program and Regan will be one of many players that Franklin is counting on to take that final step and bring home silverware this spring.
