The Shady Side Academy girls lacrosse team prepared for the WPIAL playoffs with a pair of wins to close out their regular season last week.

They beat Fox Chapel, 18-14, and Oakland Catholic, 14-10.

Stanford-bound Felicia Tissenbaum continued her offensive onslaught as she scored 10 goals for the week. Lia Winter had six while Kara Pooley, KK Jaffe and Charlotte Redican each scored four goals.

“We have been playing consistently well on offense and defense,” SSA coach Emily Schaknowski said. “We are ready for the playoffs.”

The Indians will host Quaker Valley tonight (Thursday) in a first-round matchup.
