High School Girls' Lacrosse Preview: April 8-11

Meanwhile, after seeing its incredible 228-game in-state winning streak snapped by Shawnee last year in the Group 3 final, Moorestown is ready to start another one. So far this season, the Quakers are off and running, soundly defeating Strath Haven (PA) and fellow New Jersey elite Mountain Lakes. Stephanie Toy, Nikki Shapiro and Haleigh Dalmass will be go-to threats offensively for Moorestown. Expect a fast-paced, passionate contest this weekend that could very well be decided in overtime.

On Monday, Radnor and Archbishop Carroll meet up in a battle of Philadelphia-area powers. Both programs have historically played each other close, and while Archbishop Carroll hasn't beaten Radnor since '07, the last two games were decided by three goals or less. With both teams looking strong once again in '11, Monday's game should be close all the way through.

Elsewhere this weekend, Foothill-Santa Ana takes on Beckman (CA) on Friday in a key California match-up, Mendham (NJ) battles West Genesee (NY) on Saturday in an intriguing East Coast contest, and also on Saturday, Myers Park faces Hoggard (NC) in a potential playoff preview. Also on Monday, Sacred Heart Academy takes on Manhasset (NY) and Torrey Pines faces Los Alamitos in a match-up of respective defending California state champions.
