Lanier Mighty Pups/HYLAX girls’ lacrosse team
The Lanier Mighty Pups/HYLAX girls’ lacrosse team (pictured) participated in the Greater Houston Girls Youth Lacrosse Association end-of-season tournament held at Alden Bridge Sports Park in The Woodlands. They played three games in a single-elimination format, and finished in fifth place out of 14 teams. Many of the girls were first-time players, and they had a strong showing against many other teams with girls who have played for several years. The up and coming Mighty Pups are (top row, from left) Peyton Coleman, Sasha Jezic, Ava Faubus, Ava Golden, Rayah Johnson, Julia Faubus, Matilde Goncalves, Yana Zabarov, coach Myleka Booze, Lia Symer, Kaille Williamson, Aurora McGinty, Samantha Tudor and Evelyn Cooper; (bottom row, from left) Simone Plante, Callie Steele, Ella Stromatt, Joanna Pastore, Natalie Saldana, Annie Schaefer, IlianaAlmendarez and Caroline Stefan.
