Girls' lacrosse wins the district championship

A young girls' lacrosse team showed the poise of a more experienced squad as it easily won the Class 1A District 16 championship with a 16-10 victory over Westminster Christian on April 16 at Robert E. Walker Field. In what was truly a team effort, five Raider players chipped in at least two goals and goalkeeper Sofia Martin '25 posted 12 saves. Dani Darcangelo '24 and Abby Pollak '26 led the scoring with four goals each, as coach Bridgette Laskey collected her fifth district title as RE's coach.
Dylan Berkowitz '26 and Bea de Lima '26 each scored three goals and Nina Lazo '30 – a sixth grader – scored two goals in her first varsity game. Berkowitz also had a pair of assists. Ella Crowley '26 had two assists and three draw controls and played nearly the entire game. The Raiders controlled possession with 19 ground balls as a team, and drew compliments for their clean and cohesive play from the match referee.

After opening the season with three defeats, the Raiders started to jell as a unit and won six straight games dating back to senior night in mid-March.
