Cape Henlopen continued their domination of the state in girls lacrosse, winning their 10th straight DIAA Girls Lacrosse State Championship on Tuesday.
After steamrolling through both Padua and Archmere in the quarterfinals and semifinals, outscoring them 37-7, the Lady Vikings had their eyes on another state title, taking on No. 2 St. Mark’s.
As they did in the previous two rounds, Cape jumped on their opponent early, gaining an 8-0 advantage at the halftime break. In the second half, they took care of business holding off any attempt at a rally from St. Mark’s, walking away with a 15-5 victory and another state championship.
Lindsay Monigle led the way for Cape Henlopen, scoring a game-high four goals, including her 100th career goal as a Lady Viking.
Meanwhile, Catherine Frederick, Mallory Jones and Kaylie Truitt all had two goals apiece while Emily Monigle, Meredith Lockwood, Sawyer Walker and Anna Stancofski each finished with a goal in the win.
Cape outshot St. Mark’s 21-13, while Iacona turned away eight Lady Spartan shots to earn the win in the cage.
The Lady Vikings finished the season 14-1, clinching the No. 1 overall seed in the state tournament along with a first round bye.
Cape defeated No. 8 Padua Academy, 18-3, in the state quarterfinals to advance to the semifinals where they’d get past No. 4 Archmere Academy 19-4 before taking home the state title again in their win over St. Mark’s.
