FHC girls varsity lacrosse closes out its season falling short to Catholic Central

This previous Thursday, May 25, the Forest Hills Central Rangers girls varsity lacrosse team entered the first round of the playoffs, taking on Catholic Central. Although the girls had faced off against this opponent multiple times before, walking away with a win each time, the girls unfortunately lost 9-10 to the Cougars—bringing an end to their season. 

Going into this game, the team’s emotions were all over. With this being the regional playoffs, it was win or go home, and the lady rangers were preparing themselves well for this matchup.

Sophomore Coco Mehney speaks about the team’s emotions, saying: “We were all a little nervous, but pretty confident going into the game.” 

Coco speaks about the level of competition the team was facing: “The competition was looking pretty good, they were definitely the hardest team we were going to meet in regionals.”

With the team facing a strong level of competition so early on in playoffs, the girls knew that they would have to try their best to triumph over the Cougars.

Coco continues,“We performed alright. I wouldn’t say it was our best game and there was definitely room for improvement. Some highlights were Jordan Koning scoring and Maggie Sneider scoring from the top of the eight.”

Although this may not have been the most desirable end to the season, the girls are still holding their heads high and staying hopeful for what is yet to come in the upcoming seasons.

Coco speaks about the hopes for next year’s lacrosse season saying,“In the next season we are hoping to continue playing how we did this season and grow closer as a team.”
