The girls lacrosse squad opened their season with a vengeance — with four straight wins. They remain undefeated.
They opened with a doubleheader at West Albany High School’s turf field, and matched up against Corvallis and West Albany. Sisters defeated Corvallis 14-10 and then took down West Albany in a nail-biter that ended in an 11-10 victory. The Lady Outlaws were down the entire game against the West Albany Bulldogs and came from behind to get the win. Goalie Tania Rebolledo had 15 saves in the game. Rebolledo also had a stellar performance against Corvallis with 18 saves in the contest.
Sisters posted two league wins against Redmond, the first a 10-9 win on April 18. Faith Gulick led the team in ground balls, and Gulick and Madison Taylor were a menace on defense for the Outlaws in the narrow win. Bailey Robertson scored a great goal with a shot that wove through the defenders into the net.
Two days later the Outlaws defeated Redmond 11-6. Payten Adelt was a show-stopper with her scrappy defense where she nabbed ground balls and caused numerous turnovers. In addition, she scored three goals in the contest.
Tatum Cramer leads the team in accumulative stats so far this season with 21 goals scored, five assists, 14 ground balls and 34 draw controls.
Seven other players have also made contributions in the Lady Outlaws’ scoring success: Bailey Robertson (6), Marley Holden (5), Ellie Bates (4), Payten Adelt and Faith Gulick (3 each), and Hailey Aaron and Madison Taylor (one each).
Adelt leads the team with 16 ground balls, followed by Gulick with 12 and Taylor with nine.
The Lady Outlaws coaching staff has changed a bit this year, and all have come through the Outlaws lacrosse program. Kaylee Huber moved from assistant coach to head coach, McKenna Jones is the assistant coach, Reese Harwell the goalie coach, and Kayla Root the student manager.
Huber commented on this year’s squad.
“This year’s lacrosse team, with the addition of many freshmen, are all wonderful girls inside and outside of the sport,” said Huber. “The girls have worked so hard to develop their skills and techniques and I’m proud to say the result has built a more cohesive team. Every game we play, the team learns more about who they are as a player and the importance of playing fair. I’m thankful to have the privilege of watching the girls grow in team spirit.”
The Outlaws will play at home against Summit on Friday, April 28.
