Monday girls lacrosse

Chapelgate Christian 15, St. Timothy's 13: The Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland C Conference lacrosse championship game victory wrapped up an undefeated season and gave the Yellowjackets (17-0) their second IAAM title. The other came in 2005.

The first thing Chapelgate had on its side this season was schoolmate Tyler McGinn, who was diagnosed with leukemia in September and died just as the lacrosse season got under way this spring. The girls lacrosse team made him an honorary team member and dedicated its season to him.

"If we didn't have Tyler as our inspiration, I don't think we would have made it this far," Chapelgate coach Colleen Norton said.

Chapelgate's second secret weapon was freshman Emma Rufolo. She scored five goals in the championship game, as did Amy Tragesar. Sydney Ackman added four goals.

Rufolo played sparingly when Chapelgate and St. Tim's met for the first time this season, and she missed the rematch because of a family funeral.

"Emma had a big hand in the goals today. St. Tim's didn't know about her and they weren't ready for her," Norton said.

The Yellowjackets had a 12-5 lead at the half but then had to withstand some shaky moments.

Yellowjackets goalie Kaitlyn Wetzel made 10 saves in the second half to help keep St. Tim's at bay. Her freshman year, Wetzel said, Chapelgate went 0-16. To go 17-0 "shows how much effort we have put in and how great a coach we have to have come this far."
