“2012 was the worst record for us since I started in 2000. We went 1 win and 9 loses in our Non-League schedule. We are playing the same tough schedule non league with 4 opponents ranked in the top 20 in the nation. Losing Sam and Rachel is hard on us but with the addition of Taryn to the midfield and our other starters (Isabelle, Megan, Margaret, and Gabby) being a year older we are confident we can do a much better job of starting out not in a hole and finishing out games for the win. We hope to repeat a PCL Championship and District 12 Championship.”

Archbishop Ryan High School

Coach: Amanda Kirby, 1st season

Last Year’s Record: Two wins

“The girls are working hard and I have already seen improvements. We have three strong seniors (Bernadette Jackson, Megan Manion, and Jackie Stackhouse) who returned and are going to make an impact for the team. We have a lot of juniors who are stepping up to my expectations of giving 110% and are going to be great leaders on and off the field. Some underclassmen will be seeing the varsity field as the season progresses. I was happy the see the amount of talent that came out as freshmen. I will do my best to help guide and mold them into great lacrosse players.”
