Cate Beats Birmingham Charter for 8th Straight Girls Lacross Victory

Cate girls lacrosse held off a second-half comeback by Birmingham Charter and won 12-9 to improve to 8-0 on the season.

The Rams roared out to an 8-0 lead before Birmingham got on the board.

Birmingham made a run in the second half, but Cate stepped up on defense and staved off the comeback.

Piper Brooks led the defense with four interceptions and forced turnovers. Goalie Liza Borghesani made five saves and several clearances in front of the net.

Brie Walker scored seven goals and had three assists to lead the Cate attack, and Maddie Walker added three goals and two assists.

"I was really proud of the mindset of the team today," Cate coach Renee Mack said. "We went into this non-league game with a nervous-excited energy and determination to bring our best game on the field.  And, the team rose to the test."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
