Archbishop Carroll’s girls lacrosse team was able to keep alive its 22-years-long winning streak in the Philadelphia Catholic League with its 18-0 win against Conwell-Egan this week.

On March 23, the team dominated in its first game of the season. Each goal was scored by a different player and everyone on the team had a chance to get into the game.

“It’s so fun and exciting being able to get into a varsity game,” said freshmen Maggie O’Neill. “I’m excited for the games ahead and the years to come when my grade is leading the team like the seniors are doing now.”

The girls are known for bringing the PCL plaque home each year in addition to winning every game they’ve played in the league for more than two decades. 

“It’s important because there’s a lot of alumni that we could let down and it’s a known legacy that our team holds,” said senior Ava Bleckley. 

The team is now putting its focus onto the rest of the season as they have some tough opponents coming up, like Agnes Irwin, Owen J. Roberts and Penn Charter.

“There’s always more to learn, especially now because there are new people we are working in to what we did last year,” said senior Mary Matey. “We are working on building our chemistry.”
