The board of education approved the creation of a girls lacrosse team at Tolland High School during its Wednesday night meeting.
According to Superintendent William Guzman, the Tolland Lacrosse Club has offered to fund the team for its first two years of existence, paying the gap left after students submit pay-to-play fees.
It is estimated that in two years, the team's expenses beyond pay-to-play fee funds will amount to $4,707.04, to be paid by the Tolland Lacrosse Club. The club has already raised $6,000.
The high school also has a boys lacrosse team.
The school board also approved the 2013-2018 capital improvement plan, which can be viewed in the meeting agenda.
