apostrophe use


When referring to the Nashua High Girls Lacrosse Team, do you use an apostrophe on "Girls"?

The Lacrosse Team is for girls, so therefore you should not have to use an apostrophe. I did a quick search on other team names just to check my answer and the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League does not use an apostrophe either.


FYI -- more than one girl on a team would be girls'. Girl's implies 'for one girl only'. I hope this helps!


'ding'  :D
