This is one of a series of previews for the 2018 Philly lacrosse season

Plymouth Whitemarsh High School

League: Suburban One American Conference

Head Coach: Ellen Reilly, 26 years

Last year’s record: 7-10 overall, 5-4 league

Key loses: Cate Golden, defense, American University; Sam Ward, defense

Key returnees: “The core of our team is back from last season.”
Seniors – Victoria Betterly, Ali Diamond, Meghan Ely, Sophie Kolkka, Sarah Putsch
Juniors – Lilly Hanlon, Lexi Petrakis, Kennedy Reardon, Jess Marqulies, Haley Zygmunt
Sophomores – Raquel Baskin, Amanda Fineman, Callie Kolkka, Lucy Sullivan

Others to watch: “We have some freshmen who are competing to earn a spot. They have played youth lacrosse and are showing great promise.”

Coach’s outlook: “Our excitement was high last year and we had several key injuries to players early in the season that effected our team. By the time we regrouped without those players, it was too late to compete for our league and playoffs. However, the girls did respond to win 7 of our last 8 games. This season we will take one game at a time and take every opportunity to make that game successful.”

Coach’s outlook: “We are very excited to get our 2018 season underway. Coming off of a season where we had a lot of close losses to some good teams, we are looking to improve upon that by playing more consistently and finishing strong.”
