Lacrosse: Chartiers Valley drops close decision to Mt. Lebanon

Written by Joe Koch on .

Chartiers Valley's girls lacrosse team had a successful run as a Division 2 team, advancing to the championship game four years in a row.

But the Colts have been a serious contender since moving up to Division 1 in 2015.

They displayed that tendency a year ago when they were the No. 4 seed in the WPIAL tournament and advanced to the semifinals where they fell to Mt. Lebanon, 15-8.

The two teams met again last week, and the Blue Devils eked out a 16-14 victory over the Colts.
