Women’s lacrosse has flourished this year with Swansea set to return to Division 1A after two years of rebuilding in the division below.

Emily Jones has led her side to the top of the table on a run of five straight wins following their season opener defeat to Plymouth Marjons.

“I’m ecstatic,” said Jones. “It is really unexpected, and I hope it continues.”

Swansea took revenge on Marjons when they faced them in the return fixture earlier this month with Jones’ side coming out on top 12-5.

Jones added: “It was really satisfying as they were our biggest competition.”

Swansea have also beaten Cardiff Met, Gloucestershire, and Royal Agricultural College along the way to the top.

With Swansea struggling last season picking up just four points from a possible 27, Jones has pointed to training changes that have revitalised the side’s performances.

“We change captains every year, but also training has been more regimented this year,” said Jones.

“Drills are divided between the captains, and I think we are a little stricter than last year.”

Swansea look set to take the league title with only two games remaining of the season, both against bottom of the table sides.

And Jones is hoping for triple glory this season with her team still in cup and hoping for big things at Varsity.

“Yes, we are aiming to win the cup, but the big one is varsity, we are really hoping to win that,” added Jones.
