On Monday, March 26, the Centreville girls varsity lacrosse team improved its record to 4-0 by beating the Edison Eagles, 18-5. Sophomore Caroline Bollman (2 goals/1 assist) started the Wildcats moving toward victory with a nice feed from junior Carly Sane (6 goals/2 assists). Sane led the scoring along with freshman attacker Reagan Newell, who netted an impressive seven goals and three assists. Also adding points were senior Maggie Dulkerian (2 goals/1 assist) and sophomore Catherine Zempolich (1 goal/1 assist). The defense was dominated by junior Danielle Smith, who had one caused turnover and a pass interception while also winning two draw controls and scooping up five ground balls. Freshman Brynn Doyle pitched in on the defense, notching her first career interception and picking up two ground balls. This week over spring break has the Lady Wildcats heading South to the Disney Tournament in Orlando.

Girls Soccer

On Thursday night, March 29, the sixth-ranked Centreville High School girls soccer teams traveled to Arlington for a match with the Wakefield Warriors. This was the final game before spring break, and the final game before Concorde District contests commence.

Coach Gary Malebranche and his staff used it to take a final look at their players. Younger, newer girls picked up major minutes as the coaching staff watched, giving them a chance to shine and combine their abilities with other players.

The Wildcats started slowly, then hit their stride as the first half wound down. Alex Myers came on and got the 'Cats on the scoreboard first. Jenna Green was fouled inside the Wakefield penalty box, earning a penalty kick, which she calmly converted. Then with a burst of speed, Green beat the Warriors' defense and scored her second of the night, giving her team a 3-0 lead. Shortly thereafter sophomore Madi Simons lofted a cross into the Wakefield box and Haley Yow headed it home as the half came to a close.

Opening the second half, freshman Bella Muzo scored on another header, this time off a corner kick from Katie Blumer, and then Yow spent the rest of the evening terrorizing the Wakefield defense. She scored three more times, first off a cross from freshman Noelle Brown, then after picking up a beautiful through ball from junior Stephanie Yoon. Her last goal came after Muzo stole a ball from the Warrior's center back before having her shot deflected. Yow then was there to take advantage of the loose ball and buried her fourth goal of the night.

The game ended as a decisive 8-0 victory for the Wildcats, as goalkeeper Sarah Schneider ensured a clean sheet for her team. After spring break, they will visit their district rival Bulldogs at Westfield High on Tuesday, April 10th.
