’Canes look to improve

Getting an EPC win is the major goal for the girls lacrosse program at Liberty this season.

After a 1-17 finish last year, positive steps are what head coach Laurie Muller is looking for in her second season at the helm and that’s what has already occurred for the program, as the first week of April approaches and the Hurricanes have a 2-1 record in tact.

Liberty knocked off Quakertown 12-5 and Scranton Prep 10-9 before falling to Pleasant Valley 13-11 last week.

With plenty of returning players from last year’s group back in the fold, things are already paying off for the ’Canes.

“We are looking forward to a successful season this year with the return of many players from last year,” said Muller. “Our goal this year is to improve our record from last year and to get our first EPC win.”

This year’s senior led team includes Tea Wask (attack), Quinn Burger (attack), Chase Reinert (defense), Emma Flickinger (attack) and Maggie Haupt (midfield).

Juniors McKenna Burkhardt (midfield), Sadie Abboud (attack), Jessica Del Corso (defense), Madison Muller (defense), Sarah Krause (defense) and sophomore Mia Del Corso (midfield) also will have major roles.

The Hurricanes have contests with Hazleton, Easton and Freedom this week with the hope of getting that first EPC win in the cards.

“Working as a team and having good communication on and off the field will help us to achieve our goals,” said Muller.
