Mercury Girls Lacrosse Roundup: Pottstown’s Ebony Reddick logs 200th career goal

Since her arrival at the scholastic level four years ago, Ebony Reddick has been Pottstown’s worst kept secret.

An instant contributor in every sport she’s competed in — whether girls lacrosse or basketball — Reddick has been a main focal point for the Trojan offense on both the field and the hardwood.

And on Wednesday afternoon, the Pottstown senior added another impressive feat to her résumé.

Reddick scored her 200th career goal in the Pottstown girls lacrosse team’s 14-13 loss against Pottsgrove in a Pioneer Athletic Conference Frontier Division matchup.

“It feels great,” said Reddick, who entered the day at 197 career goals and exceeded the 200-goal mark during the first half of her nine-goal game. “I’m glad that through my high school career there were goals I was able to meet and I actually met them. I’m glad that I was able to get to 200 and I want to end with many more for sure.”

Reddick’s latest feat comes just a few months after she surpassed the 1,000-point scoring mark with the girls basketball team this past winter.

Although she admittedly had her sights set on setting the lacrosse program’s scoring mark — 318 career goals set by Kasey Mock (‘10) — Reddick takes plenty of pride now sitting at 206.

“They were both big accomplishments for me,” said Reddick, of her accomplishments in lacrosse and basketball. “They were both goals that I had set in my mind from freshman year. I always wanted to set the record for goals for lacrosse. I know that’s something that won’t get handed to me easily. And neither did the 1,000 points.”

Emily Williams scored eight goals to lead Pottsgrove to the win while Brooke Saylor netted a hat trick. Alyssa Petrucelli, Allie Reppert and Sydney Tornetta were each credited with solo tallies.

Behind Reddick, Pottstown’s Da’zah Regusters added a pair of goals while Abbie Krause and Christina Butler each scored once.
