BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Mount St. Mary made history Tuesday night. Not only did the girls lacrosse team win a Monsignor Martin title, they advanced to the inaugural state playoffs.
The Thunder topped Sacred Heart 16-12 in Tuesday's Monsignor Martin Championship to win their first league title since 2017. The Sharks topped the Thunder in last year's championship game.
"This is what we wanted to do," said head coach Paige Printup. "We wanted to go to states. When we found out this was the first year we could be going, that was our goal from the very beginning."
Lois Garlow led the Thunder with seven goals while Lauren Mucica and Emma Telesco added three goals in the win.
"The season's not over," Garlow said. "I'm so excited. High school, it's not over. I'm so stoked for my team, for our coaches, for me, I'm so excited that it's not over yet."
Next up for the Thunder is the New York State Catholic High Schools Athletic Association Tournament this weekend in Long Island.
