The WMS Girls’ Lacrosse team fought the battle of our last home game with only 9 players and came out strong from the first whistle to the last with a win of 11-7. Every player on the field dug deep and worked with the utmost determination to make the last game their best game. Natalie LaBrie led the offense with 5 goals and Morgan Pednault, Brianna Lopez, Jenita Virak and Ava Cavanaugh all saw their shots hit the back of the net for a total of 11 goals!
Riley Lopez made her debut as goalie for the team and had 12 amazing saves! Her willingness to step into the goal for our last game with no experience made our win even sweeter. Our season record was 5 wins & 3 losses. Congratulations to all the girls on a season well played.
