The Seaford girls’ lacrosse program took another step toward building a winning culture this spring.
The Vikings went unbeaten in Conference II to claim the league title a season removed from going 8-6 with several close losses. This year, Seaford seized control in the close games en route to a 10-0 conference record and competed strongly in non-league games against Conference I opponents.
“We had a strong senior crew and this was their year to show off what they have been doing the past couple of years and I’m really proud they were able to accomplish that,” said third-year Seaford coach Jenna Davis. “Moving forward I think we have cemented that this is a strong program and we earned our place among the top teams.”
Seaford carried over the momentum from a dominating regular season where it went 13-3 overall into the playoffs with a 16-10 first-round win against Division on May 17 powered largely by four goals and two assists from freshman Jess Grzelaczyk. Senior attacker Alex Leggio also had a big day with three goals in three assists to help the Vikings seize control in the second half after the score was tied 5-5 at halftime.
The Vikings’ postseason run came to an end last Saturday with a 16-8 loss to third-seeded North Shore in the Class C quarterfinals. The game began Friday and was suspended due to rain with the score tied 7-7 and 24:13 remaining in the second half. Grzelaczyk led Seaford with four goals, but the Vikings were limited to just one tally in the second half after the score was tied at halftime.
