After losing six in a row, the Davie girls lacrosse team picked up two much-needed wins to close the regular season.
In a home nonconference game on April 20, the War Eagles took down Atkins 12-6. Scoring multiple goals were Sarah Rajacich (three), Lyndsay Harrison (three), Myka Smith (two) and Reese Tutterow (two). Helena Berrier and Grace Butler had one each.
Two days later at home, Davie routed Glenn 21-4 in the final Central Piedmont Conference game of the regular season. S. Rajacich and Butler both had a hat trick. Ava Rajacich and Zoey Cleary had two each. Getting one were Nicole Korczyk, Kinnah Chamberlain, Steph Bueno, Tutterow, Cecily Fishel, Kasey Williford, Emma Jones, Katie Freeland, Lilli Seats, Kayleigh Sagendorf and Berrier.
The War Eagles (4-12 overall) finished sixth in the CPC. West Forsyth and Reynolds tied for first at 11-1. East Forsyth (7-5), Mt. Tabor (6-6) and Reagan (5-7) were the other teams ahead of Davie (2-10). Glenn was last at 0-12.
The top four scorers for the season are Butler (29 goals), A. Rajacich (19), Chamberlain (18) and Korczyk (12).
No. 6 Davie was pounded 19-5 at No. 3 East Forsyth in the first round of the CPC Tournament on April 25.
The goals were scored by Chamberlain (two), S. Rajacich (two) and Butler. East improved to 13-5.
Although it was a rough season for the rebuilding War Eagles (4-13), better days are ahead. Coach Lydia Moore pointed to girls like junior Korczyk and sophomores Tutterow, Danika Williams and Butler, who led Davie with 30 goals. Chamberlain (20) and A. Rajacich (19) were second and third in goals.
“Reese switched to defense and quickly became a standout,” Moore said. “Danika (a first-year goalie) had a great season. Nicole’s draws were a big offensive help and a piece of the game we lacked last year. (Butler played a big role with) her power on offensive plays.”
Moore also saluted the JV players and their coach, Courtney Howard.
“They had a disappointing lack of games, but they were committed and continued to practice and improve and will be a huge asset to our growing program,” she said.
