PMHS girls’ varsity lacrosse looks to improve on past successes


Following a solid last season, PMHS’s girls lacrosse team is returning a strong group of leaders and looking to capitalize on last season’s successes.

Last year, they ended the season with a 10-6 record, and were seeded 5th in the Class C playoffs, receiving a first-round bye, and playing Hendrick Hudson in the quarterfinals, losing 11-3.

The team returns a promising group, including senior captains Lucy Conway, Claudia Dodge, and Madelyn Dunbar. Dodge and Conway each broke the 100 career goal mark last season. They also return sophomore goalie Molly Terraciano, who had a solid previous season. In the offseason, returning junior Maria Comerford committed to Holy Cross, a Division One school, for lacrosse.

However, the team did lose several athletes as well. Emily Maher, who scored several times throughout last season, switched to track after joining them for their winter season. They also lost Delia Crotty, who was a regular name on the scoring sheet as well.

The team will look to challenge Byram Hills and Rye, both of whom beat them last year, as well as Hendrick Hudson, who blew them out to end their playoff run and defeated them in the regular season as well.

The Pelicans will kick of their season away at Somers on the 26th of March at 4:30 PM.
