Over the two day tournament on June 30 to July 1, the team had victories over: Team Elevate (7-6), Check-Hers Elite (5-4), tied Green Turtle (7-7), and then beat the Diamonds in the Championship Game in overtime, 5-4. The event was sponsored by Under Armour.
The Integrity team was lead on offense by Jenna Garden with 8 points (7g, 1a), Olivia Piccirilli with 6 points (4g, 2a), Haley Urgo with 5 points (3g, 2a) and Mackenzie Kaderabek with 4 points (4g). Additionally, the following players also scored during the tournament: Payton Kenny, Alex Schepers, Katie Sheehan, Sydney Foster, Allie Rand and Paris Plummer. The squad played well defensively limiting their opponents to just 21 goals over the 4 games. Goalie Taylor Suplee was outstanding going undefeated over the two days. Olivia Piccirilli and Mo Skinner lead the way in picking up grounds balls with 13 and 9 respectively; Allie Rand also picked up 8.
Also making strong contributions to the team wins were: Mackenzie Cramer, Abby Byrd, Sarah Jordon, Ryan Loprete, Ashley Clifford, Bethany Stehle, Jessie Pate and Lauren Zinkl.
Coaches Shannon Garden, Chip Stehle and Taylor Robertson look forward to the young ladies from Anne Arundel County (Davidsonville, Crofton, Annapolis and Severna Park) continuing to improve as they head to Downingtown, PA, this weekend for the Upper Atlantic Tournament.
Congratulations to the Integrity 2018 team from Patch!
