Heading into next week, the Mars girls lacrosse team is 9-2 overall. But for playoff positioning, the Planets are in the hunt for a favorable seed in the postseason tournament with a 6-0 record against Division 2, Section 3 opponents.
Mars only losses have come against Division 1 stalwart Pine-Richland, 15-7, and 2015 WPIAL Division 2 finalist Blackhawk, 12-9. The game was the second in a home-and-home match. Blackhawk won the first game, the season opener, 9-7.
Mars has a challenging schedule this week with successive section road games on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday against Butler, Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic and Knoch.
