For Sports:

The Girls JV and Varsity Lacrosse teams battled Queen Annes last night. They dedicated their games to Morgan’s Message, a Mental Health Awareness organization for student-athletes. Both games came down to the very end with JV winning 7 to 6 and Varsity winning 10 to 7. It was a full team effort with defense making huge stops, attack converting on goals, and midfield controlling the transition. Senior, co-captain, Sadie Kauffman, had a dominant performance with 5 goals and 8 draw controls! Congratulations on this exciting victory!
