Lacrosse off to a victorious spring start

On March 9, the men’s lacrosse team won against Oberlin by 11- 7. From the beginning, the men’s team worked hard against the opposing players to take every point towardsthe win. The team started with 3-0 in the first quarter. One of the goals came from Nathaniel Hentschel (’20) and two of them came from Jack Radzville (’22). Their lead continued on throughout the game, ending with a 9-3 lead by halftime. Another notable performance is from Rocco Mularoni (’20), who scored twice.

Radzville finished the match with a team high of three goals. The match was non-league. “We had some incredible opportunities offensively because of how we shared the ball a little more early in the shot clock,” head coach Micheal Schanhals said. “We’re learning how to deal with the shot clock a little better and how to manage our time.” Throughout the match, the Flying Dutchmen won 16 out of 22 faceoffs. The goalie, Nick Schanhals (’19), worked tirelessly to fight against Oblerin.

During the entire game, Nick made 14 saves and stopped the opponents in their tracks. The next game for the lacrosse team is a home game at 5 p.m. on March 14. They will be playing against Carroll University. The women’s team also played last weekend at home against Lourdes University, winning with an impressive 19-4 score! The team took the lead from the start, with Madison McCreery (’22) scoring the first goal only 23 seconds into the game. The Flying Dutch kept the lead from then on. “We couldn’t be prouder of the team for coming out strong in the beginning,” head coach Kim Vincent commented. “It’s something we’ve been working on this week in practice. It’s about how we move the ball, how we work together and also the energy we bring to the game.

We did everything we meant to accomplish.” The team demonstrated their depth as eight players scored over the game, led by Carly Pieri (’21), who scored four goals. Three players scored three points apeice, and two scored twice! With two other individual goals, the game was made! Next week, the lacrosse will be spending their spring break fighting to keep the winning streak alive.
