Girls lacrosse gets a change in leadership

Leiann David

The girls varsity lacrosse team started the 2019 season with a new coach, Ms.  Christine Lagana. Lagana played lacrosse as a goalie at Tottenville High School and is replacing Coach Gonzalez.

She’s coached the team to a 5 win and 3 loss record, and the team is currently working towards keeping their loses to only three for the season. Lagana’s plan for the team is to have the girls find their own place in the sport; even if it is only for the sisterhood and camaraderie of being on a team. “ It’s important to have to work hard at something because you never know what you are able to do unless you take a chance,” said Lagana.

Currently the team is ranked sixth out of 14 teams in their PSAL South Division. They recently suffered a hard loss versus Susan Wagner High School (10-8) but are determined and ready to work even harder and improve as a team.

The team’s lead scorer and co-captain Mollie Friar, a junior, is ranked sixth overall in their division for goals scored with a current total of eighteen goals in six games. She works diligently with senior co-captain Megan Hourican, following with a current total of 16 goals scored in seven games with three assists.

Current seniors, Brooke Diaz, Allison Kaht, Barbara Lewis, Mary Lewis, and Mikiyah Murphy are working equally hard to  contribute as great team leaders both on and off the field.
