In search of extending their win streak to three games, the varsity girls lacrosse team hosted Archbishop McCarthy Wednesday, March 17,  at home as part of the team’s senior night.

Just a week after demolishing West Boca Raton by a score of 20-1, the Patriots picked up right where they left off, handling Archbishop McCarthy a 20-8 loss.

The game moved Heritage’s record to 4-2 and continued the team’s success streak. However, for the seniors of the team, the victory meant more than another tally in the win column.

“It was very important for all of us seniors to win our last game on the home field,” senior Jordyn McCullough said. “There is always something special about winning on our own field, and doing it for the last time felt amazing.”

As the Patriots move forward in the season, they will look to continue the success they have generated over the past few games, following a 1-2 start.

“Recently, we have been playing very well as a bonded unit,” McCullough said on the keys to the recent winning streak. “Being on the varsity team for so long made me realize how important having a good connection with the players is.”

After a short break, the team returned to action once again Tuesday, March 23, when they took on Cardinal Newman for a shot at four straight wins.
