GIRLS LACROSSE

Updated 12:45pm May 14 — Darien gave the developing Bears program, and its own underclassmen, a worthwhile workout, winning 22-6. And lots of girls put lots of numbers on the scoresheet at Norwalk on Wednesday.

I put my heart and soul into it.

— Lisa Lindley

But one number alone stood out at the buzzer, and it wasn’t the zeros lighting up the clock.

Four-hundred is the number of the hour.

That’s how many wins Wave girls’ lacrosse coach of 23 years Lisa Lindley now has.

“I feel incredibly fortunate to be a part of this program; to have built this program, and to have developed a culture I’m really proud of,” Lindley said. “I put my heart and soul into it, and I think the girls, whether they realize it when they’re playing for me — or when they’ve graduated and come back — they definitely realize, I’m here for them. And they’ve learned a lot of lessons.”

On the historic day there were these numbers too.

Anna Stein had three goals and three assists, Sarah Jaques four goals, Katie Ramsay four goals too, Christine Fiore two goals, two assists, Emma Jaques one goal, one assist, Emma Lesko, Nicole Humphrey and Katie Elders two goals each, Jordan Vaught one goal, and Ashley Humphrey one goal.

Carly Schoudel made 10 saves.
