It’s nice to see that Alex Rich is doing OK.
How do we know that Rich is feeling better? Well, four goals and three assists is a pretty good indication.
On Monday evening at Ed and Jeannie Arnold Field at Earl Boltz Stadium, Rich figured in more than 40 percent of her team’s scoring as the Cedar Crest girls’ lacrosse team hammered county rival Palmyra 17-4 in the spring season opener for both squads. It was also Rich’s domination of mid-field draws off of stoppages that helped the Falcons to an insurmountable 12-0 halftime lead.
Rich had missed a good bit of the final portion of the Cedar Crest girls’ basketball team’s run to the second round of the PIAA Class AAAA postseason with concussion-like symptoms. During the regular season, Rich’s staunch defense, role playing and leadership helped the Falcons to a Lancaster-Lebanon League championship.
But Rich is even more at home on the lacrosse field. The athletic senior midfielder has committed to take her lacrosse talents to Division One Louisville.
