Middletown North Girls Lacrosse Preview


Kristy Daly, Writer

As of Friday, March 1, all spring sports  tryouts began. Lacrosse is a newer sport to Middletown North’s athletics program as it was first played in the spring of 2017. Many students throughout the school enjoy participating in the fast-paced, endurance-talking sport, one of whom is attack player Breanna Farney (11).

The Lions will look to build off of last year’s season performance.

Farney has been a part of the team since freshman year and continues to put great effort and dedication into the sport she’s grown to love.  The girls team had an overall record of 7-11 in the 2018 season and is looking to improve that record this year.  One of the highest-scoring players on the team is Junior Ally Walsh, who has scored 7 goals, 4 assists and 11 total points throughout her high school career. When asked why she plays lacrosse at North, Farney responded, “I play for North because I just love to play the sport and a couple of my close friends are on the team. I would recommend anyone in any grade that’s debating playing a spring sport to give lacrosse a try. Once you start playing, it’s a sport that you never want to stop!”

The Lion’s Varsity Lacrosse team takes on its first game of the season at Hightstown High School on Thursday, March 14, at 4:30 PM. Make sure you are present to support these hard-working athletes!
