The 212 U15 girls finished in third place, while competing against mostly sophomores and juniors. A solid showing for a young group of kids faced with stiff competition.
212 Lacrosse teams scored 135 goals and had 36 goals against while playing in 21 games over two days. 212 completes a six month tournament series with a Girls’ & Boys’ cumulative record of 90 wins and 21 losses including 7 tournament appearances and 6 titles.
“212 continues to play for two former teammates of mine at North Carolina, Neill Redfern (battling cancer) and Eric Seremet (recently widowed). The message for the kids to play for someone other than themselves is unifying and they all continue to play very hard for Eric and Neill. I’m extremely proud of all the 212 kids. As always, a big thank you to the entire 212 Lacrosse community. The support the parents show myself and our staff continues to be tremendous. I’d also like to thank all of our coaches; Brian Bilzi (D1- Manhattan College), Court Durling (D1- Virginia), Elizabeth Jahp (D1-Cal) and Jeannette Villapiano (D1 UMASS). They did a wonderful job helping guide our 4 teams to a cumulative 15 win, 5 loss 1 tie record. Thank you to Bitter Lacrosse for putting on a great event and providing us with such a beautiful venue to compete in another fun, successful lacrosse weekend.” – Mike Acee
