The crowd goes wild. The first play. Green 32 Red 13 Ready, Hike. The ball snapped. The ball is thrown Tipped Caught. Touchdown. Score: 6 to nothing The noise is deafening. The team celebrates. The opponents dejected. The field goal kicked, It is

Victory Against Garden Spot for Lacrosse Team

Image
On this past Tuesday, the Lampeter Strasburg Lacrosse team scored a victory against the Garden Spot Spartans Lacrosse team.

After already facing Garden Spot a few weeks before, the Pioneers knew what to improve on in the following game. However, both teams were thirsty for a victory in the Lebanon League. In the first game, the Pioneers gained a lead and managed to keep the Garden Spot Spartans at bay. The Pioneers ended up winning this game.


In the second game against Garden Spot, the Pioneers started the game off strong and put up one goal after another. After a 12 minute quarter of solid play, the Spartans tried turning things around.

The Garden Spot Spartans managed to possess the ball for most of the second quarter, allowing them to put up a few goals.

As the third quarter rolled around, the Pioneers seemed rejuvenated and ready to play. L-S managed to put up another 6 goals.

Once fourth quarter arrived, both teams were exhausted from a grueling previous 3 quarters, and intensity beg…

Persevering through the pouring rain: Girls Lacrosse team does not give up

Image
It was no easy game to play on Friday, April 12 for the Lampeter-Strasburg girls' lacrosse team. What started as a mere drizzle quickly turned into a pouring rain during their home game against Hempfield High School.
The varsity team started off the evening with a slight drizzle infiltrating them for a majority of the game. And unfortunately for the varsity team, the rain got in the way of their victory as they fell to Hempfield that night.
However, the story does not end there. Following the varsity game, that evening there was the JV game. The team came back with a vengeance. As more and more people began to exit the soggy stands, and as the rain began to fall harder and harder, the girls had to bring their A-game. 
Half-time of the game was even cut short due to the poor conditions! Kelly Hostetter who scored a goal for her team that evening said this of the game, "It was not an easy game. There were times when the turf was slippery and I couldn't see the ball. Despite…

In this article, I am going to introduce you to track and field and share scores and highlights from the last L-S track meet.


So to start, we have track events and field events. The track event groups include distance, sprints, and hurdles. The field events include jumps, vaults, and throws. For reference, each lap on the track is 400 meters or 0.25 miles. The distance events include the 800, 1600, and 3200. The sprinting events include the 100, 200, and 400.
