The St. Luke’s girls varsity lacrosse team produced a fantastic display on Tuesday, May 3, when it recognized its five seniors and beat King School 17-8.
The Storm honored Annalise Correia, Caitlin Neafsey, Macy Owsley, Katherine Ellis, and LuLu Clark prior to the contest. Athletic Director Mike West and Head Coach Kathy Drake thanked each senior for their hard work and dedication, and each senior was given a plaque to commemorate the day.
With Georgia Bennett ‘25 and Correia scoring two quick goals, St. Luke’s started the game on its front foot and led the Vikings throughout the match. Bennett and Correia would add two more goals each, with Sarah Beran ‘23, Lola Triay ‘24, and Lucy Beran ‘24 adding two goals each, too.
Correia, who finished the game with seven assists, was delighted with her team’s effort: “I am so proud of the way the girls performed against King. Everyone’s contributions and teamwork on both ends of the field helped secure the win. We owe a lot of our success to our amazing coaches. They're always there to support us, and their on-field coaching led us to an incredible offensive performance.”
It was a tremendous way to celebrate the senior class and gave the Storm back-to-back wins, following its 19-12 victory over Hamden Hall on Friday, April 29.
Girls varsity lacrosse has a busy week next week, with three away games at Greens Farms Academy on Monday, May 9, Wooster School on Tuesday, May 10, and The Frederick Gunn School on Friday, May 13. Correia is eager for the team to finish the season with a few more victories: “I hope we can capitalize on our strengths and build even more momentum going into our last games. I think if we can continue to play with poise and patience, the team will build on its strong chemistry and end the season strong.”
