The Summit Varsity Lacrosse Team had a well earned 14 to 2 victory over a strong Reagan team. Early in the first half Summit had difficulty maintaining control of the ball on their offensive side of the field, but the defense held off a steady Reagan attack. The Raiders pressed hard on the Summit clear with intense physical play and double teams. The Summit midfielders responded with a determined effort including individual clears from Nell and Mary Catherine. With each additional offensive possession the Summit offense settled the ball, improved their passing efficiency, and organized an effective attack. By the end of the half, the Eagles built a 4-1 lead that started with goals from Allison and Mary Catherine, and an impressive 3 goal run by Abby. In the second half the Summit defense communicated well and played excellent team defense. Summit was able to limit Reagan, that has averaged more than 8 goals a game, to 2 goals. On offense, Summit scored early in the half and maintained a balanced attack until the final whistle. They found a way to score in transition and in settled situations. Rylee had a outstanding game. She contributed on defense, cleared the ball multiple times, and scored on a perfectly executed free position after drawing the foul.
VG Lacrosse traveled to Mount Tabor High School and earned a 12-0 victory. The Eagles maintained a fast paced offense and several players contributed to the scoring. The girls moved the ball well and capitalized on some well timed cuts and precise feeds. On defense, Summit worked hard to handle their individual match-ups, and they forced several turnovers. Adelaide came up with multiple stops to keep the Spartans scoreless. Abby led this excellent team effort by playing focused defense while scoring 3 goals and adding 1 assist on offense.
