Bongiorno's Four Goals Propel Girls' Lacrosse to Win
It’s been a challenging season for the girls’ lacrosse team. With small numbers and varying levels of experience, the team struggled to find its identity this spring and suffered a handful of lopsided losses. Although these losses were extremely uncharacteristic for the usually dominant program, the girls’ were determined to rewrite the script in their final game. Playing not just for themselves, but also for their eighth grade teammates and for their departing coach, the team put forth their best effort of the season on Wednesday afternoon and finished on a high note with a definitive 9-6 win. Seventh grader Juliana Bongiorno provided the offense on the rainy afternoon with four goals and a pair of assists. Defensively, co-captains Rori Miller and Stephanie Nomicos shut down the opposition’s attack and protected goalie Alicia Siekman from facing too many shots. With the win, the rest of the season’s struggles were wiped away and players will never forget their final game with Coach K.
