On Wednesday, May 3, the girls’ varsity lacrosse team took on Lowell High School at Davenport University. In an explosive match up, the Lakers were victorious, defeating the Red Arrows 13-2.

The victory was made possible by tenacious defense led by Grace VandenBosch, as well as the relentless scoring from many key players. The thirteen goals were split among Audrey Van Linn, Meg Ready, Macie Kosch, Kate Vinkemulder, McKenzie Ely, and Madison Kaurich.

Wednesday night’s efforts were not just on the offensive side of the field, however. The victory was ultimately secured by the stifling Laker defense, holding the Red Arrows to just two goals. With great efforts by Grace Vandenbosch, Grace Nass, and Lauren Constantine, it was nearly impossible for Lowell to get any shots. The shots they did get to take were all shut down by goalies Paris Heard and Lauren Sharp, who shared time in net.

“Defense played well, shot placement was good, throwing and catching was sharp, and we were winning a lot of the draws,” Macie Kosch commented, when asked on the overall performance of the game.

Senior defender Sophie Winn’s once attended Lowell High School, so squaring off against her former high school is something that has made the match up between her two schools interesting and personal.

“It makes me more motivated to play well,” Winn said, when asked about playing against her old teammates. Winn has been sort of a jack of all trades this season, playing on all aspects of the field save for goalie. Winn’s ability to play the field will become a great advantage to the Lakers as they prepare to make a run this postseason.

“We’re ready to go,” senior attack Meg Ready commented about the playoffs. “We’re planning to win conference.”

Playoffs start Thursday, May 25, at home against Comstock Park. The Lakers are seeking revenge for last season, where they lost in the first round to Caledonia.
