By Alex Burstein and Charlotte Price

Boys Tennis

Lane’s boys tennis team took home the city championship on May 5 with 28 total points. Their closest competition was Whitney Young, with 16 total points. The team almost entirely swept the competition, winning four of five championship matches. First singles player Marko Mcrae won first; second singles player Thomas Gjoklaj won first; and both the second and third doubles teams (Sean Meyer/Indrit Metarapi and Andy Choi/Fletcher Glass, respectively) took first. The first doubles team of Freddy Hasnovi and Alex Lapins finished second.

Girls Soccer

A dominating performance against the Jones Eagles on May 10 propelled Lane Girls Soccer to their eighth straight city title and their first under new head coach Sean Harkness. The Champions scored three in the first half and three in the second half to defeat the Eagles 6-0 on a beautiful night at Lane Stadium. Sophomore Grace Carman led all scorers with two goals and two assists in the win. Senior Avery Ellis added two goals and junior Kristiyana Sevova had a goal and an assist. Freshman Jackson Caffey had a goal and junior Riya Jain added an assist.

Girls Lacrosse

After a loss to the Payton Grizzlies in the city title game last year, Girls Lacrosse entered the title game against Payton this year with revenge on their mind. It paid off, as the Champions jumped out to a 5-0 lead and rolled to a 15-6 win. Eliza McHale and Gwen Ryan led all scorers with three goals, with Ryan adding an assist as well. Katie Wilk, Allyson Vanna, Kendra O’Keefe and Abby Kenen all had two goals. Wilk and O’Keefe each had an assist, while Vanna had two assists. Kate McNamara had one goal and Neela Ryan had one assist. In goal, Maggie Breed had four saves.
