Main Line lacrosse wrap-up: Agnes Irwin wins 3rd straight Inter-Ac title

Agnes Irwin and Laura Pansini made history Wednesday in a 17-4 victory over Baldwin.  The Owls (16-5, 11-1) claimed a school record third straight Inter-Ac title. Senior captain Laura Pansini recorded her 200th career goal and with nine points (six goals, three assists) set the Agnes Irwin record for career points, 328 (202 goals, 126 assists).

“This was an incredible day, a day we could only imagine when these seniors were freshmen on my first day at AIS,” said head Coach Jenny Duckenfield. “Kristin Burnetta, Emily Fryer, Kate White, Hannah Keating, Laura Pansini and Sarah Platt will leave a legacy in the record book, but more importantly, as leaders, they have built the foundation for our program in the future.”

Agnes Irwin will open the PAISAA Championships this weekend. The Owls are the defending champions and the No. 1 seed.
