Girls Lacrosse
The Hilliard Darby Girls LAX were dealt their first loss of the season by Dublin Jerome Celtics by a final score of 15 to 12.  Logan Card kept the scoring close for most of the game, putting up 9 saves.

Abberly Dela Rosa started the scoring and ended with 2 for the game.  Haylee Handrahan led with four goals assisted by Kelsey Binion and Carley House on two of them.  Hayley also had a fantastic defensive check of the opposing goalie which resulted in a turnover and led to a spectacular Lexi Lednik goal, which was her second of the night.  Kelsey Binion also had two goals.  Karissa Allbright and Sophia Iosue added to the tally with one goal each.

Come support your lady laxers at their next game at home when they take on the Gahanna Lions at 7pm on April 8th.
