After string of losses, girls’ lax looks to finish on high note
May 3, 2012
Summit’s girls’ lacrosse team lost in a squeaker, 10-12 to Palmer High School on Wednesday. It’s been a tough run for the Lady Tigers, who also lost to Green Mountain 24-7 on Tuesday and to Grand Junction 17-7 on Friday.
“We played a slow first half,” said head coach Kristin Elliott of the Wednesday game. “But the second half really picked up. The first half, I don’t know if it was too much hang-around time or what happened. But the second half they started getting after ground balls and had more draw controls. They got more intense, which was nice to see.”
Goal scorers were as follows: Kates Raymond (4), Madi Grosshvesch (3) and Ivy Marshall (3). D1-bound Marshall is the leading scorer for the team; she netted all seven of the Lady Tigers’ goals in Tuesday’s shellacking.
Summit is set to finish up its season at home against Colorado Academy at 10 a.m. Saturday. With the recent losses, they have been eliminated from the playoffs.
“We were competing really well (on Wednesday) and we just need to bring the intensity on Saturday,” Elliott said. “We had a lot of girls that got in there and got some ground balls. We played really well as a team. Once we got it together in the second half, it was much better.”
