Manchester Valley Girls Lacrosse Pulls Off Perfect Season

The Manchester Valley girls lacrosse team went unbeaten in 2015, finishing the season 19-0. The Mavericks finished their campaign with a 16-5 victory over Queen Anne's in the MPSSAA 2A/1A State Final, winning their second straight state championship. The other major highlight on the season for the Mavericks was beating Baltimore City private school powerhouse Roland Park Country School, the only team to beat Manchester Valley in 2014, by a final score of 23-11.

"Our focus was to be better each and every day, and that is what our team was able to accomplish," Mavericks head coach Shelly Brezicki said. "They worked as a team, defeating talented teams across the state, by working as a unit. Each girl played a role in our season, contributing their strengths, and pushing their teammates to be the best."

The Mavericks were strong in all areas. Their defense was extremely stout, only allowing 4.6 goals per game. The offense was creative and consistently potent. Manchester Valley's midfield, which was led by junior Lizzie Colson, was quick and skilled. It was an all-around team effort by the Mavericks to be perfect this season, and Brezicki credits her players.

"As a coach, my job is to prepare them, their job is to execute," Brezicki said. "And they did that in each game we played."
