PCHS rolls on Senior Night
After struggling in the first halves of recent games, the Park City High School girls’ lacrosse team was focused on starting strong on Friday evening at Knoop Field against Cache Valley.
The Miners did just that, jumping out to a 12-0 lead at halftime.
They wouldn’t look back, earning a 19-2 victory to improve their record to 21-0.
"The girls played great," Park City coach Amy Hafets said. "They came out from the first whistle ready to go and they really clicked as a team."
She added that the strong effort helped build the team’s confidence heading into the rest of its North Conference schedule.
"For them, keeping their physical intensity and mental intensity against a team that they’re stronger than is a good sign," she said.
Maddie Haynes led the way with five goals for the Miners. Haley Adelman added three goals, and Caitlin Jarratt and Marina Mayo each had two. Autumn Alden, Hannah Hyatt, Lolo Frost, McKenna Tychsen, Natalie Frost, Sierra Schlag and Katy Miele all had one goal.
Before the game, the team’s six seniors were recognized for their efforts. Alex Miele, Ashley Peabody, Haynes, Schlag, Natalie Frost and Jarratt were all honored in the Senior Night festivities.
Hafets said she’s proud of all the improvements the seniors have made while leading the program.
"I adore those girls; they’re such excellent leaders," she said. "They all add something, some different spark to our program. I think they’re great role models."
She added that the seniors have greatly improved the Park City program during their four years.
"Each one of them is such a critical part of this team. Watching them grow and develop over the past couple years has been really exciting."
The Miners are scheduled for a home game against Judge Memorial, another North Conference opponent, on Thursday at 5 p.m. Hafets said it’s important that her team stays focused.
"Our next four games are all divisional games," she said. "Each game, we have to take it seriously. Getting this first win under our belt was big."
