Girls Lax Starts Super Strong

There are nice starts to a season and then . . . there are incredible starts.

Tuesday, accompanied by chilly temps and occasionally wicked winds, Penn Charter's girls lacrosse squad warmed hearts by cruising to a 17-1 victory over visiting Friends' Central.

Here's an impressive nugget: Eight of the goals were scored by players in no higher than ninth grade.

"It was a great start to the season," said coach Colleen Magarity. "We showed a ton of potential, and also a lot of things to work on.

"I loved to see so many girls on the scoreboard and I thought the defense played very well."

Junior Emma Wilson and eighth grader Darcy Felter scored three goals apiece.

Members of the two-goals club were eighth grader Lane Murray, frosh Kaylee Dyer, soph Leax Sax and senior Greer Guyer (shown above).

Frosh Mia Ferraro, soph Lizzie McLaughlin and junior Molly Visco contributed one apiece.

And, Soph Hayley Hunt recorded nine saves.
