Lacrosse: Both Latrobe teams eye section perfection

Written by Joe Koch on .

The Latrobe lacrosse teams seem to be emulating the song "Anything You Do, I Can Do Better."

That's because the boys team enters next week with a Division 2, Section 1 record of 4-0 and an overall standard of 5-2.

The girls are 7-0 in Division 2, Section 1, and the Wildcats are 9-1 overall. There is disparity in section records as the boys only see their section opponents once a season while the girls play each opponent twice.

Both teams face big challenges this week. Following a 14-8 non-section setback to visiting Quaker Valley, the boys host Kiski Prep on Tuesday and visit Penn-Trafford on Wednesday. The Warriors are 7-3 overall, and they also are perfect in section play with a 3-0 record. Latrobe closes out section play on May 10 against visiting Indiana.

Lacrosse: Latrobe seizes first place in section

Written by Joe Koch on .

The girls lacrosse teams from Latrobe and Hempfield had both started off the season quite well, and there was a sense that this past Tuesday's game between the two teams would be a big game.

And, it was. With first place on the line in Division 2, Section 1, the winner would be in control of the section lead and have the inside track for a berth in the WPIAL Division 2 girls tournament.

Latrobe, which had won five of its first six games was the better team on this date as the Wildcats secured a 10-5 triumph over the Spartans.

The loss was the first year for the 4-1 Spartans. Their four wins had come against section opponents.
