Girls' lacrosse makes history

The girls' lacrosse team (3 - 0) kept the momentum of their winning streak alive in a neck-and-neck battle with the B - CC Barons on Saturday. The Blazers executed a new offensive formation to tackle the Barons' defense, and ended up on top with a final score of 13 - 12.

The Blazers knew B - CC would be very competitive, senior captain Molly Branson explained. "We all went in really intense," she said. Senior co-captain Nellie Garlow added that the Barons have always posed as tough competition for the Blazers. "They had a lot of really strong players," she said. "We knew what to expect."

In the first five minutes of the game, the Blazers scored four goals and began to believe they could win the game, Branson explained. But Blair became worried when the Barons made a comeback and trailed by only two points. "We got a little bit too confident," Branson said. The second half of the game went back and forth as Blair and B - CC took turns scoring. "We were just neck-and-neck throughout the entire game," Garlow said. Despite the stress of the second half, the Blazers were able to clinch a satisfying victory. "We were able to pull through and make it a 'W,'" Branson said.
