As the spring sports season is underway, the PVHS girls lacrosse team kicked off their season with a meaningful game. 

After a long preseason, the girls started out strong with a huge win in their Morgan’s Message game against Mira Costa. 

The game went into double overtime, resulting in an exciting 9-8 victory.

“The Morgan’s Message game was a game against Mira Costa where we dedicated it to a former Duke lacrosse player Morgan, who took her own life,” sophomore Kallista Wang said. 

“Morgan’s message was made to spread awareness of athlete mental health. Winning that game was important to our team’s position in Bay League and after winning we were able to recognize our true potential as a team all together.” 

Even with early season struggles, the team is still figuring out ways to win. 

As of April 12, the team has a winning record of 9-6. 

“I would say the biggest challenge through preseason was keeping everyone motivated and committed because preseason can be long and hard and can be easy to lose sight of the season,” junior Riley Padian said. 

“We persevered by reminiscing on our successes from the previous season that was a result of our hard work through preseason.” 

Although there were some notable lowlights, the team has also had a variety of highlights. 

With a huge 19-3 win against Peninsula, the girls have improved their Bay League record to 2-1. 

As of April 12, their 2-1 record ranks second in Bay League.
