Carmel Catholic savors conference crown
May 12, 2015 3:35 PM - They wanted to raise a banner this season at Carmel Catholic as the school's first girls lacrosse team to win the East Suburban Catholic Conference title. That was their goal, as they wrote down before the season started. But the Corsairs were coming off a 5-12-1 overall record in 2014 and a 1-5 mark in conference play. Wishful thinking for the ESCC title? Maybe. Mission accomplished? Yep. The Corsairs stand at 12-2 overall heading into today's regular-season finale at Highland Park and claimed the ESCC title with a 6-0 record, including an 8-6 win over Marian Catholic on April 14. Marian Catholic was the ESCC champion for each of the past two seasons, the first two girls lacrosse seasons in the ESCC.
