Lady Bucs Complete Successful Season

The Lady Bucs had an undeniably successful season this year under the management of Head Coach Christina Beach. Advancing to the the Semi-Final Round of the DIAA State Tournament, the Lady Bucs gave it their all on the field from the beginning of the season to the final game. From a losing season (7-11) in 2011, the Lady Bucs were able to improve their record to 12-6 and compete in the State Tournament.

On Tuesday, May 29 the Lady Bucs faced Polytech in the DIAA State Tournament Quarter-Final Round. Losing to the Panthers 11-1 earlier this season, the Lady Bucs took the field with something to prove. With great defensive play, the Bucs advanced to the next round of the tournament by defeating Polytech 1-0.

“It was a huge game for us,” commented Coach Beach. “I think that our girls always believed that they could beat Polyteach. It was a different game all together from earlier in the season.”

During the Quarter-Final Round against Polytech, Kate Richard scored the loan run to advance the girls to the Semi-Final Round of the tournament. Richards was hit to home with help by her teammate Kylie Nelson.

On Thursday, May 31 the Lady Bucs faced off against Sussex Tech in the Semi-Final Round of the DIAA State Tournament. The Bucs lost in that round with a 0-3 defeat that ended their season earlier than they hoped. With a 12-6 record and a trip to the Semi-Final DIAA State Tournament Round the Lady Bucs had a great season and look to become a consistently tough team in their division and across the state of Delaware.

“this season was a huge success and the girls really turned it around by working together,” commented Coach beach. “Next season we will have to move some people around and continue coming together as a team. We will really work on developing our skills and improve on taking it one day at a time.”

Seniors Savannah Becker and Alyssa Sanders have both received athletic scholarships to compete at the collegiate level next year. Savannah Becker was offered a scholarship to play softball at James Madison University in Virginia and Alyssa Sanders received a scholarship from the University or Delaware for women’s swimming.
