Heading into the Easter break, both Quaker Valley High lacrosse teams are having stellar seasons.
Although it plays in Division 2, the Quakers' boys team is the top-rated squad in Western Pennsylvania with an 8-0 record, according to Laxpower.com. Coach Bill Marcotte's team has faced few challenges thus far. Their closest game was a 12-7 victory over Shaler in the season opener. Since then, the Quakers have earned double-digit victories over Knoch (18-4), Greensburg Central Catholic (17-3), North Hills (18-2), Cave Spring, Va. (13-1) and New River Valley, Va. (16-3).
Quaker Valley returns to action Tuesday with a nonsection game at Latrobe.
On the girls' side, coach Nellie Kraus' team has had similar success, also entering the break with an 8-0 record. Their most significant victories came against No. 9 Pine-Richland (14-4) in the season opener, No. 6 Seneca Valley (14-7), No. 8 Fox Chapel (19-14) and No. 10 North Allegheny (11-8).
