Girls’ lacrosse looking for CCS possibility

After a season full of ups and downs, the girls’ varsity lacrosse team is counting on a few final wins to qualify for Central Coast Section. The Panthers are 3-13 this year, with their biggest win against St. Francis earlier this season.

“Considering the level of competition that we are up against, the season has been good so far,” senior Michala O’Donahue said. “We play against some of the top teams in the area and have done pretty well overall despite the end results of some of the games.”

The team is led by senior captains O’Donahue, Jilly Rolnick, Hannah Sarwar, and Kailey Nichols.

“This season has been really fun as a senior,” Sarwar said. “All of the seniors get along really well, so no matter what we are doing, we’re having a good time.”

The Panthers played three games last week, with a loss against Menlo-Atherton High School on Apr. 23, a win against Carlmont High School on Apr. 25, and a loss against Menlo School on Friday, Apr. 27.

“We got moved up a league since last year so it’s definitely been a tougher season, but we are all working hard to try and get some wins,” Sarwar said.

Though it may be too early to call, the girls’ lacrosse team is looking for CCS qualification.

“Hopefully we’ll qualify,” Sarwar said. “I think it is hard to tell now but we have some really strong players and a good team dynamic so a lot of them are hoping to work hard and qualify next year.”

 Senior Kailey Nichols warms up for the girls’ lacrosse game against Carlmont High School on Wednesday, April 25. The Panthers won 14-7.
