A pair of former Skaneateles girls lacrosse players are set for a showdown.
Hannah Powers and Loyola women's lacrosse picked up a win Friday and will take on Kyla Sears and host Princeton in the second round of the NCAA tournament Sunday.
Powers tallied five goals and four assists in Loyola's 19-6 rout of Richmond Friday. The senior added six draw controls.
On the same field shortly after, Kyla Sears registered a pair of goals and assists for the Tigers in Princeton's 19-7 win over Wagner. The sophomore added a ground ball and one caused turnover.
Sears and Princeton take on Powers and Loyola at 1 p.m. Sunday.
Seeing two of her top athletes doing well in the NCAA tournament wasn't lost on Skaneateles coach Bridget Marquardt.
"It's awesome," Marquardt said after her team's win over rival Marcellus Friday night. "We have the MVP of the Ivy League Tournament in Kyla Sears and the MVP of the Patriot League Tournament in Hannah Powers. It's great because they're going to come back, and the little girls see them, and they'll give back and coach. It just shows all that hard work makes you successful. ... I'm so proud of them."
