The Mason High girls lacrosse team ended their regular season in strong fashion, winning their final two Dulles District games last week in preparation for the upcoming district playoffs.
Last Wednesday, the girls headed to Park View for an away game against their district rivals, which they won soundly, 18-7. Junior midfielder Sally Blakemore led the charge against Park View with six goals, with freshman Abby Johansen and sophomore Christina Perez each adding three of their own. Sophomores Gwen Edwards and Courtney Ready, as well as freshman Amanda Rolander helped the Mason cause with two goals a piece. The Mustang defense stifled Park View consistently throughout the game, limiting the Park View girls to a paltry 10 shots on goal.
The girls couldn’t spend too much time soaking in their victory, with their final district game against Briar Woods looming the next day. The Lady Mustangs traveled to Briar Woods last Thursday and emerged with a 10-7 victory. The Mustang defense continued to play extraordinarily well, with sophomore defender Chelsea Wilkes contributing quick steals and senior goalie Emily Perry blocking shots from all different directions.
Blakemore led the team in scoring for the second straight game.
The Lady Mustangs now turn towards the playoffs, where they travel to Dominion on Thursday, May 8 for the start of the District tournament. They enter the postseason as the fifth seed in the Dulles District.
