Xavier Lacrosse Defeats Horizon

Coach Clayton Zuba

The Gator Lacrosse team made Xavier proud Monday night with a decisive win over Horizon, 13-5.

Team Captain Sarah "Muscles" Minton led a balanced attack in the triumphant return of star goalie, Tanya Barakat, wherein the Gators' legendary lockdown defense limited Horizon to just 5 goals. Emmie "the machine" Halter scored the Gators' first two goals, which were followed by 11 more goals scored by a plethora of players, including Nina "the Ninja" Mackie and Bridget "dubstep" Wickers.

On a shorthanded night, with few substitutions available, the entire team made spirited contributions.

Notable performances were delivered by Grace "G-Racer" Haak, the UnCanny Caroline Andreen ("Andrenininine"), and scoring her first goal as a Gator, freshman Gabby "ankles" Celtruda.

Congratulations on a strong win, Gator Lacrosse!
