Lacrosse: CHS Girls Capture Two Wins Before Spring Break

On Monday, March 18, the Islander Girls’ Varsity Lacrosse team traveled to Del Norte High School for a match. Within the first two minutes of the game, freshman Allie White scored on Del Norte. She followed with an assist two minutes later, allowing junior Josie Morrissey to score. With incredible momentum, the Islanders scored four more goals in the first half, while goalkeeper Kendall Chapko had five saves, allowing only two goals. Going into the second half with a significant 6-2 lead, Coronado let their defensive guard down, allowing Del Norte to score three goals in the first five minutes. Junior Camden DeMaio maintained the Islanders’ lead by scoring their first two goals of the half. Chapko saved four goals, but allowed four more for Del Norte. Senior Kat Green pushed back with three goals in a row to give Coronado an 11-9 victory.

“This game was a huge team effort and I think the attacking end did an excellent job staying composed, especially in the final minutes when maintaining possession was crucial for the win,” shares Coach Kirstyn Atkinson.

The Islanders then traveled to Eastlake High School on Thursday, March 21 for another great victory. Green and junior Catie Ward played most of their game at Eastlake’s goal, and each of them score three goals. In goal, Chapko saved eight attempts by Eastlake, letting them score only two goals in the entire game. “I think the team gained some confidence in their abilities to move the ball quickly down the field and capitalize when the opportunities were there,” comments Coach Atkinson. Coronado took this easy win 13-2.

The lacrosse team currently holds a record of four wins to one loss.
