Cicero-North Syracuse Girl’s Lacrosse Team Captures State Championship Cicero-North Syracuse Women's Lacrosse Team Captures State Championship

SYRACUSE, NY (NCC News) — The Cicero-North Syracuse High School girl’s lacrosse team recently secured the Class A State Championship with a 12-8 victory over Fairport. This win ends a 28-year gap since their last state championship in 1996.

Senior captain Gabriella Pauline said everyone on the team worked together towards the same goal.

“Honestly, this year was our year. I’ve been on varsity since 9th grade, and after COVID, I just had a really good feeling about this season. Our team worked really hard together, and I was excited for us to show what we could do,” Pauline said.

Stephanie Prentice, the team’s coach, encouraged her squad to play their brand of lacrosse as they entered the final quarter with the game tied. This directive appeared to galvanize the team, as they surged ahead in the last quarter to secure the victory.

Brooke Molchanoff also emphasized the team’s determination.

“Probably just coming back last year from losing in sectionals, we worked really hard throughout the whole season. We all wanted the same goal, and we just kept pushing. We all worked together and we got it,” Molchanoff said.

This victory marks an important moment for the NorthStar’s lacrosse program. C-NS finished the season with a 19-2 record.
