Girls lacrosse eliminated in state semis with 13-1 loss to Bel Air

By Michael Gorman

The girls lacrosse team was eliminated from playoff contention on Friday night against the Bel Air Bobcats, falling 13-1.

The Vikes came up just short on their second straight trip to the state semifinals, as the Bobcats provided an offensive barrage that few teams were able to handle during the season.

Maddie Parker was the lone goalscorer for the Vikes, getting on the scoresheet one last time for Whitman before she continues her lacrosse career in college.

During the first half, the offense of the Bobcats proved to be too much, and as the defenders of the Vikings were overwhelmed by the striking ability of their opponents.

The Vikings tightened up their defense in the second half, only allowing three goals.

On offense the Vikes put up their best effort against a Bel Air team that had barely let anything by them this season.

Although the season is over, the team’s chances look promising for next season, as many underclassmen have stepped up in recent games, most notably freshman Gabby Svec and sophomore Eden Gray.
