The girls’ lacrosse team celebrates its victory over MCC on Monday.

Eighth-grader Lexi V. scored four goals to lead the girls’ lacrosse team to a 10-9 triumph against Melbourne Central Catholic Monday night. The victory was the first of the season for the Lady Wildcats, whose record stands at 1-7.

Lexi V., who has been the team’s leading scorer this season with 14 goals, had the crucial game winning goal in this game.

“I’ve been personally improving a lot this year as every game progresses,” she said. “As we get deeper into the season, I think I will be able to score even more and help our team win more games because my shots have gotten a lot better along with my ability to maneuver around opposing defenders.”

According to sophomore Mallory Chauvin, the team gained much confidence in its first win.

“Everyone on the team has shown a lot of improvement since the beginning of the season,” she said. “We are trying to come together more and more to bring a couple more wins in by the end of the season.”

Senior Hannah LeBeau noted that the victory came against a quality opponent.

“It was super exciting to win,” she said, “especially because it was our first win of the season, and usually Melbourne Central Catholic is really good.”

Sophomore Daniah Jarrah said defense will be key going forward.

“As a team we keep improving, every game we are doing better and better,” Jarrah said. “We need to work on having a better defense and passing the ball up field faster.”

The Lady Wildcats’ next host Satellite on Thursday night at 5:30 p.m. Then will play Eau Gallie on March 27 at 5:30 p.m.
