Rams boys lacrosse team wins PAC, reaches Districts

Staff Report

Once again, boys lacrosse put together a winning season while dominating PAC competition. In 10 games against PAC opponents, Spring-Ford won by at least 5 goals in all but one game. The one outlier was a tough away loss to Perkiomen Valley. The team finished with a 16-4 record and took home the PAC title.

In the PAC semi-finals, the Rams defeated Boyertown 16-10 to set up a rematch with Perkiomen Valley for the PAC title. Hungry for a win over their rivals, the Rams came out and dominated. The game finished at 13-1, a lop-sided victory for a championship game. These boys have now won back-to-back PAC titles. This was the Rams’ first set of consecutive PAC titles since their 9-year title streak from 2011-2019. Hopefully this is a sign of more success to come for this program.

Unfortunately, their season would end soon after with a defeat to Garnet Valley in District 1 tournament play. This would be the last game for the 12 seniors graduating this year. Congratulations to Kevin Canuso, Will Fish, Logan Galster, Luke Pajovich, Sam Pijanowski, Charlie Power, Brandon Solomon, Nathan Suranie, Colin Sweeney, Lance Terrizzi, Justin Wixted and Zach Zollers on their great careers.

Girls Lacrosse

The Spring-Ford Girls Lacrosse season ended with a 8-9 season record.

The team scored a couple of great wins against Spring- Ford’s biggest rival, Perkiomen Valley with scores of 11-10 and 8-7.

“We have many talented players and at times play very well together,” coach Kristi Holstein said. “We struggled with consistency and making turnovers this year.”

Even though the team did not get the chance to play in districts, there were a bunch of younger players who got the opportunity to play on varsity and hope for better fortunes in the future.

“For next year, we will focus on perfecting our stick skills and situational decision-making,” Holstein said. “Our focus will be working as a team and making it to the PAC Championship.”

The Rams’ leading scorers were Hailey Mozi, Alexis Sowers and Gianna DiBattista. Alexis Sowers , Madison Pierce, and Riley Czapor led in assists. Lindsay and Morgan Evak and Hailey Mozi are recognized for their draw control.

“We will miss our seniors Eva Engro, Bryn Frankhouser who will be playing at Millersville, Sammy Marinello, Mia Mitchell who will be playing at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Madison Pierce and Summer Smith”.

Mozi and Mia Mitchell were awarded First-Team All-Pioneer Conference in the PAC. Second team was awarded to Sowers, Lindsay Evak and Ilyana Jones.

Boys Volleyball

In the first inaugural season, the newly crafted boys volleyball team started their season on March 17 with a 3-1 victory over Council Rock South (26-28, 25-15, 25-12, 25-18).

Although the Rams eventually finished their season 4-13, the team impressed as a first-year program behind seniors Jake Blackmore, David Alban, Luca Carboy, Logan Bromirski, Zackary Horwatt, Brendan MacCoy and Colin Parker. Coach Samuel Moyerman

“ It was a great experience,” said Ian Wright, a player on the team. “One, being a part of all of Spring-Ford history, and the sport itself is like nothing I have played before. I also had some great teammates which was also a lot of fun for me.”

The volleyball team has a bright future going forward.

The Rams put together a strong season, finishing 7-4 in PAC play and 9-7 overall. The season was highlighted by 4-3 wins over Souderton and Boyertown. The boys also bested Pope John Paul II 6-1 and Phoenixville 5-2. 2022 All-Area players Cam Moore and Navein Suresh graduated following last season’s conclusion, leaving big shoes to fill. Sophomore Henry Damiani had a successful season and will continue to be a big piece of the puzzle moving forward.
