For the 24th consecutive year the Anne Arundel Crosse Over Tour sent a team of Anne Arundel County-based girls lacrosse players to England for a two-week tour of the country and a slate of lacrosse games.
The local contingent represented strongly against many of the best teams in the Cheshire region of Northern England, going 6-0 overall, including a 15-7 win against the host Stockport MetroGirls Lacrosse Club.
The U15 Anne Arundel County team included Severna Park’s Morgan Scott and Macey Scott; Broadneck’s Samantha Lavorini, Mary Moore and Alexis Dupcak; Spalding’s Lucy Beardmore and Annika Standish; and Indian Creek’s Avery Barnhill and Molly Bunker. The team of defeated the MetroGirls 15-7 in the final game of the trip, with Moore recording four goals and two assists and Lavorini scoring three goals and adding an assist. Dupcak had two goals and dominated in the draw circle.
Indian Creek’s Bunker received the prestigious Lyn Jones Award, voted on by the host MetroGirls, for the athlete who best displays the “Friendship Through Lacrosse” ideals of the Tour.
Next summer the Stockport MetroGirls will make the trans-Atlantic trip to stay with host families in Anne Arundel County and play against local teams while experiencing the United States.
