Lady Indians Beat Up on Q-Town Panthers
Written by Rachel Blackburn, Correspondent

Morgan Rynn fires the ball into the net past the Quakertown goalie in the first game of the girls' lacrosse season at Upper Perk Friday. Rynn scored twice in the 20-0 blowout.

        Last Friday, Upper Perk girls lacrosse shutout the first-year team from Quakertown 20-0, kicking off the new season in the right way for the Lady Indians.

        In the first half of the game, the Indians made 14 goals.  Freshman Kenzie Gebhart scored the first goal of the game as well as the third goal, followed by four goals from Aubrey Wilcox; two each from Morgan Rynn, Kayla Smith and Maddie Fox; and a goal apiece from Megan Koder and Regina Moser.

        The second half started with a save by goalie Regan McComb, who continued with three more saves for the Indians to obtain the shutout. Kathryn Lehman made the first two goals for the second half as well as a third goal later in the game. Also scoring in the half – and securing the shutout for Upper Perk – were Jess Newman and Sam Dingler.

        This is the first win for Susan Flack as coach of the high school team.  Flack was the lacrosse coach at the middle school for the past three years, and before that, she coached the high school team for six years between 1993 and 2000.

        "I missed coaching at a high school level, and I was excited when the position came open," Flack said. "The intensity is higher, the drills are more difficult, and we're incorporating more movement and plays into the offense."

        Flack is assisted by Alyssa Thren, who played lacrosse for Ursinus College. Although the coaches are proud of the way their team played on Friday, they go into the rest of the season hoping for more improvement.

        "I want us to maintain possession of the ball and be scoring," said Flack, "I want to see them become a strong team in the league – a top contender."

        The strongest opponents for Upper Perk this season will be Boyertown, Spring-Ford and Phoenixville, but the girls have faith in the job that their new coach is doing.

        "She is very motivational and never lets us hang our heads," said McComb. "So far we are having a great season."

        Because of the number of returning players this year, the team feels strong going into the rest of the season. Some returning players include seniors Kayla Smith, Maddie Fox, Aubrey Wilcox, Sam Dingler, Morgan Rynn, Jenna Wismer and Danielle Krempasky.

        With a large varsity team made up of 19 players, the team has high hopes to be "top contenders" in the rest of the season.

        "It's going to take a lot of work and commitment from the players," Flack said, although she believes that with the right amount of work and determination, the team will show tremendous improvement throughout the season.
