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

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 all these things, it was still a lot of fun playing in the rain! Playing in the different conditions challenged our team, and we all had a blast."
Having fun worked for the JV team as they defeated Hempfield. 

Make sure you keep supporting the girls' lacrosse team as they finish out their season!
