Tiger girls’ lacrosse tops Seahorses
BURLINGTON — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ lacrosse team split two road games during the past week. The Tigers are 1-2 heading into a long break before they next take the field, on April 26 at South Burlington.
The Tigers also received bad news on the injury front over the weekend when starting defender and co-captain Fairley Olson was hurt. Coach Deena Greenman said her status for the rest of the spring is in doubt, although she expected Olson would “rally to be part of the team as a leader even if she can’t be on the field.”
On April 9, MUHS cruised at Burlington, winning 16-3. Eight Tigers scored, led by Alanna Trudeau with five goals and Nora Wootten with two goals and three assists. Ada Weaber, Sophie Laroque and Lia Robinson each had two goals and an assist, and Nyna Cole, McKenna Raymond and Willow Fitzgerald chipped in a goal apiece.
Megan Gemignani (two saves in the first half) and Ava Schneider (seven saves in the second half) shared MUHS goaltending duties. Burlington goalie Emma Hellyer made 2 saves
Greenman added she was pleased with the defensive efforts of Ivy Doran, Olson, Becca Orten and Abby Tufts, especially as the team’s defenders continue to learn a new defensive system.
On Monday, host Mount Anthony pulled away from a 7-7 tie early in the second half to prevail, 13-9. Weaber led the way for Middlebury with three goals and controlled eight draws. Hana Doria and Laroque each had two goals and an assist, Wootten and Trudeau added a goal apiece, and Reese Fitzgerald had two assists. Schneider and Gemignani, combined for another nine saves.
