Penn Yan girls lose to Canandaigua, beat Mynderse

PENN YAN—The Penn Yan girls lacrosse team fell to another Class A team Monday night, April 6, when it lost to Canandaigua, 18-9. Morgan Basler was the bright spot of the Penn Yan lineup, according to Coach Patty Queener. Basler scored six goals in the otherwise lop-sided game.
Queener stated, “Canandaigua was the more talented team tonight, but what I am disappointed about is that this team doesn’t seem to be able to play a second half.” Queener commented that she was referring to the mediocre second halves her team has played in its three games this year. “It seems like we start out really good and put together a decent first half. Then we aren’t keeping our heads about us in the second half. Nonetheless, a game like this is good for us, because we want to achieve a higher level.”
In addition to Basler’s six goals, Katelyn Sloan had two goals. Chelsea Treat, Meredyth McMichael and Catherine Anderson each had one goal. Meg Hopkins had two saves in goal and Margaret Maslyn had eight saves.
The Penn Yan girls and boys lacrosse teams each had a big win last week. The girls team won big, 21-1, March 31, over Mynderse. The boys team won big, 9-3, over Class A team, Webster Schroeder, April 4.
The girls’ game was a big win after a loss in their first game to Penfield, a game in which they had the lead until near to the game’s end. Nearly everyone on the Lady Mustangs scored at least one goal against Mynderse. They were led by Sam Sisson who had three goals and two assists. Natalie Wagaman had two goals. Morgan Basler had one goal and four assists. Meredyth McMichael had a goal and two assists. Katelyn Sloan and Jennifer Burt each had one goal and one assist. Courtney Hey, Chelsea Treat, Kristen Thayer, Christina Warren, Ariel Christensen, Catherine Anderson, Brittany Griffiths, Madison Hill, Stephanie Lee, Meghan Hill, Meghan Reed, Leah Swarthout, and Brooke Wickham each scored one goal.
The boys lacrosse team played in a steady rainy, icy mix combined with a strong wind. The game was close until the fourth quarter. Goalie Ethan Kamholtz was called for a penalty. Freshman Cody Richardson held Webster Schroeder scoreless for the penalty period. Then, the Mustangs broke loose for four straight goals.
Cole Castle had three goals. John Linnan had two goals and two assists. Matt Osgood had two goals. Nate Nichols and Anthony Luppino each had one goal. Adam Trombley had four assists. Kamholtz had 11 saves. Richardson had one save.
Coach Brian Hobart stated, “These guys have worked very hard for a month. They’ve busted their butts, looking forward to this game. They knew it would be an important game to set the tone for the season. We play a tough schedule. This was one of the toughest but the kids have to be ready for each game. None will be easy. This game showed what they can do.”
The Penn Yan boys lacrosse team is ranked #2 in Section 5, and #6 in New York State.

Baseball

Mustangs Coach Marty Olmstead was delighted with his team’s performance. “They put together a complete game tonight. Timmy [Eckerson] was sharp and Kevin got the bat on the ball. We had some good base-running, too.”
