GC takes the field GC takes the field The Garden City High School Girls Varsity lacrosse team played their first playoff game of 2017 and came away with a big win! GCHS took on New Hyde Park High School on Wednesday, May 17th at Warren King Field in Garden City in the quarter final round of the Class B playoffs. Like Garden City, New Hyde Park was undefeated in conference play this year leading Conference V with a record of 11-0. The Garden City girls proved to be too much for them, however, taking an early lead and never looking back. The game concluded with a final score of 17-1.

Garden City saw scoring from 11 different players. The team was lead offensively by Sarah Mackey with 3 goals and 1 assist and Jenn Medjid with 2 goals and 2 assists. Celia Concannon contributed 3 goals and Jackie Brattan added 2 goals. Freshman Julianna Ingrassia scored her first varsity goal and contributed 1 assist as well. Mary Kate Dolan, Taylor Gladd and Sarah Kaval each tallied 1 goal and 1 assist. Julia Fornasar, Kelly George and Miller Overbeck each added 1 goal, and Ella Heaney tallied 1 assist on the day.


Julia Fornasar scores on a free position Julia Fornasar scores on a free position GC’s strong defense of Devon Heaney, Katherine Galzerano, Deanna Weisenburger, Catherine Conway, Keeley Scott, Kara Metzler, Amanda Cerrato and Erin Healy once again played great defense allowing New Hyde Park’s offense very limited opportunities. Tough goalkeeping added to GC’s limiting NHP to only 1 goal. Goalkeeper Kerry McHugh lead with 3 saves. Goalie Emily Gaven recorded 2 saves and goalkeeper Kaitlyn Larsson recorded 1 save.

The girls next take to the field for the semi-final match against the winner of Calhoun HS v MacArthur High School. The game will be played on Monday, May 22nd at 4:00 pm at Adelphi University. Please come out and cheer on the team!
