GERMANTOWN — In the early game, the rain held off and the Seneca Valley Screamin’ Eagles girls varsity lacrosse team (1-7) picked up its first win of the season in a dramatic 6-5 win over the Wheaton Knights (4-6), while in the night cap, the rain came down as the Seneca Valley Screamin’ Eagles boys varsity lacrosse team (0-11) remained winless, losing to the Wheaton Knights (2-10) 14-4 at Seneca Valley field on Thursday evening.

For Seneca Valley girls’ lacrosse, the team was pleased that the final game for these Eagles was a win.

Eagles girls head coach Lindsay Harris said of the win, “At halftime, we also came together as a team and talked about how this was going to be the last lacrosse game played on this field. We wanted to win for our seniors. And all of the underclassmen really came together and said we need to come out full intensity and be ready to go. Said that this last game played on this field be a win for this school.”


Wheaton’s Henderson-Feist pulls reversal, wins regional crown

  • Published in Sports

There were plenty of reasons to doubt Delante Henderson-Feist’s chances of winning last weekend’s 285-pound Class 4A-3A North Regional title.

The undersized and inexperienced Wheaton senior only started wrestling as a junior “to try something new,” compiling a record of 22-12 at 220 pounds before missing weight at the county tournament and eliminating himself from the postseason.

This wrestling season didn’t get off to a great start either for Henderson-Feist, a 6-foot-2, 230-pound football linebacker, running back and tight end who was forced to wear a cast for two months after suffering a broken right hand in the last regular season game of 2016 against Watkins Mill.
