FHS Lady Mustangs Lacrosse flying high after tournament
At the Aggieland Classic this past weekend, the Friendswood High School Lady
Mustangs Lacrosse team handily won their division and placed 2nd overall after a
last-minute goal by Stratford High School in the Championship game knocked
them out of 1st place. The two-day tournament featured 66 of some of the top
girls’ lacrosse teams across Texas and produced a weekend of exciting games.
In the shadow of Texas A & M University’s Kyle Field, the Friendswood team beat
Keller HS 8-1, Austin’s Westwood HS 11-2, and Austin’s Stony Point HS 5-2 before
losing 3-4 to Houston powerhouse Stratford.
Friendswood led Stratford the entire game until the last few minutes when
Stratford scored. The Lady Mustangs were the only team in the tournament to
score against Stratford.
“I’m really proud of the girls. They have worked hard and the teamwork on the
field was excellent this weekend. Friendswood High School has been very
welcoming of the Girls Lacrosse program and we are so appreciative of their
support. Placing a trophy at FHS is a great way to begin out fourth season” said
Chris Turner, the Girls’ Lacrosse Head Coach.
Over the two-day tournament, goalie Nadelyn Smith denied 16 of 26 attempted
goals, Junior Skylar Pope led the team in assists and Captain Emma Johnson led
the team with 10 goals.
