The lacrosse team continued their success beating Lee’s Summit North 15-11 on Thursday, April 19. After the league split the teams into two divisions, with the varsity in the harder division, the team continues to consistently win. They are currently ranked 3rd in the state this year, which impacted their play.

“Right before the game, we learned that we are ranked 4th in the state this year,” junior Sarah Tappan said. “Which is incredibly exciting so it really hyped us up to keep that ranking and play our best.”

The team fought hard for ground balls. They were a large aspect of the game and helped the team win according to coach Jim McEnerney. Sophomore Reilly Jackoboice, junior Savana Mayer, and seniors Sarah Totta and Aidan McEnerney each got eight ground balls.

“When you get a ground ball, it’s possession and when you have possession you can score,”  McEnerney said.

The team did not use any substitutes during the game, which helped them learn how the other team was playing. The lack of subs put pressure on the team, according to Totta, but it proved to not hurt them.

“We needed to focus on learning how the other team plays and it’s tough to do that if we constantly have new players coming in,” Totta said.

The cohesiveness of the team is also part of their success according to Tappan.  Early in the season, the team decided on their goals for the year, to win the Kansas City metro tournament and go to State. Everyone works together to reach their goal, helping them bond, according to sophomore Brie Bowes.

“My favorite part of the team is when we listen to pump up songs in the gym before each game to bond and get prepared for our game,” Bowes said.

As the season continues the girls continue to bond and get closer with each other. This helps them connect better with each other on and off the field, which makes a huge difference, according to Tappan.

“The girls love each other and have each other’s backs and it makes the biggest difference in the world,” McEnerney said
