Lacrosse learns from defeat against Alpharetta

Sophomore Crista Alarcon-Suarez competes for the ball. The game was close, and although the Panthers fell short in the final score, they held their own against the Alpharetta Raiders in an aggressive game.

On Monday, JV girls lacrosse lost a close game against the Alpharetta Raiders, 7-6.  

The Lady Panthers began with a promising two-goal streak within the first five minutes, but by the end of the first quarter, the Raiders had secured a lead at 3-2. 

The game’s fate whittled down to the final seconds when Starr’s Mill had a shot at goal. They were unable to come up with the score, and the Raiders won the game.

“Alpharetta’s a really big school so for us to be able to compete against them is […] awesome,” head coach AC Atha said.

Some of the girls were not able to play the entirety of the match, with eighth grader Mia Marshall injured during the game, sophomore Heidi Locker unable to play, and sophomore Kylie Collum getting ejected from the game.

“I got two yellow cards, so I couldn’t play the rest of the second half,” Collum said. “My performance was very aggressive, and I’m proud of myself for being so aggressive, but overall [it was] bad.” 

Due to the many penalties called against Starr’s Mill in the first half, they had to adjust and play a more careful and cautious game after halftime.

“It’s a mental game. If you’re not in it 100 percent, you’re not in it at all,” sophomore Ouisie McCaskill said.

The JV lacrosse season has ended. Overall, the team finished with a 7-2-1 record.
