Girls Lacrosse
Spring Valley girl’s lacrosse traveled to Clover High School and defeated the Blue Eagles 7-5. The Vikings took a quick lead with Taylor Motlong, Hannah Huntley, and Ainsley Cherubin scoring the team’s first three goals before the Eagles scored their first. Clover was not without an offensive presence however, and goalie Hannah Hawkins saved 5 shots on goal during the first half. The half finished with a goal by Je’Nai Sumpter, leaving the game 4-1.
Spring Valley’s Ainsley Cherubin scored the first goal of the second half which was followed by a Clover goal.  Zhane’ Bradley then added to the Viking’s lead with an assist by Hannah Huntley. At this point, with 15 minutes left in the second half, Clover was spurred to rally. They scored 3 unanswered goals bringing them within one point of Spring Valley. Against the Viking’s defense, however, it was too little, too late. Defender Armia Shell consistently made short work of the eagles’ mistakes, picking up many dropped balls in the critical scoring area. With two minutes left, Cherubin scored her third goal of the night and sealed the win for Spring Valley.
