4/13/08 – Girls’ notebook: Youthful Episcopal Academy girls are starting strong
By Chris Goldberg
Phillylacrosse.com, Posted 4/13/08
When Julie DiRemigio decided to return home to her roots of Philadelphia after 10 years coaching high school girls’ lacrosse in Virginia, she figured she had a slight rebuilding project at Episcopal Academy.
The Churchwomen had lost eight key seniors from a squad that won the Inter-Ac with an 11-1 record and went 14-3 overall. This year’s team had only three seniors returning, along with a large group of talented underclassmen.
“I knew coming in that we had lost a lot to graduation and I was thinking maybe it would be a building year,” said DiRemigio, the former Julie Clyma who graduated from Penncrest (class of 1984) and Dartmouth and spent the last 10 years coaching at Episcopal High in Alexandria. “But instead of them thinking, ‘We’re going to struggle,’ I guess they decided they needed to step it up.”
Episcopal has done exactly that. The Chuchwomen are 6-1 after splitting two games Saturday in a tournament in Virginia. Some of the early-season victories have been impressive; triumphs over Inter-Ac contenders Germantown Academy (20-13) and Notre Dame (15-11) and a 13-9 conquest of Tower Hill, the top-ranked team in Delaware according to the Wilmington News-Journal.

Sacred Heart girls’ lacrosse team huddles in game to benefit Rooney Foundation
The score of Monday’s game between host Sacred Heart and Merion Mercy in a Catholic Academies girls’ lacrosse game was not nearly as important as the cause for the event.

Sacred Heart senior Molly Rooney and her sister, Merion Mercy senior Casey Rooney served as hostesses for this event that honored their mother, Kelly Rooney, who passed away after a courageous battle with breast cancer on July 11, 2006. A third sister, Haley, is a sophomore player for Merion Mercy.
