For the past two seasons, Chartiers Valley High's girls lacrosse team has competed for a WPIAL Division II championship, only to be thwarted in both the 2011 and 2012 title games by North Hills. In 2011, the Colts lost to the Indians, 15-5. Last year, the Colts became the 40th straight victim to the Indians in an 11-10 regulation loss.
It's 2013, and the Colts have yet again reached the semifinals following Thursday's 16-4 home-field victory over Hempfield. And, just like last year, the Colts will meet Blackhawk at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the semifinals with another trip to the championship game up for grabs. A year ago, the Colts captured a 10-3 victory over the Cougars in the quarterfinals.
