This past week, both the boys and girls lacrosse teams qualified for playoffs.

The girls finished fourth in their section with a record of 8-6 and the boys finished second in their section with a record of 10-5.

Both teams look to have favorable matchups against Seneca Valley.  The boys will play at home on Monday, May 14 at 7 p.m. and the girls will be away on Tuesday, May 15 at  7 p.m.

Junior Maggie Marsteller said, “Our season went pretty well. Our section has a good mix of teams, which allows for us to improve with each game.”

She also commented on how the team has dealt with numerous seniors graduating in 2017.

“We had a lot of girls step up this year and become a huge part of the team.”

Senior Christina Zehr agreed that their tough section matchups have prepared them for playoffs (the girls play each section matchup twice).

Zehr believes that having the tougher competition will make playoff matchups favorable. She believes they will face “easier competition.”

Girls lacrosse “Superfan” Ty Miller said that he definitely believes the girls “have a chance.”

Senior Noah Seeberger said the team is ready “to do this.” He noted that Peters Township had the toughest path last year and won the WPIAL Title.

The boys team has made strides since the 2015 season when the now seniors were freshmen. In 2015, they finished 5-11 and 0-5 in section.

In the 2017 season, they won their section and went 9-7.

This year, while they lost the section to Peters, they posted a 10-5 regular season record. A win over Seneca Valley would reverse their record from freshman year!

The boys previously played Seneca Valley, winning 9-4. While the girls team did not play Seneca Valley.

Make sure you come out and root on each team in playoffs!
