The Palmyra field hockey program boasts a long and storied history of success on the regional and state levels. Along the way, the Cougars have produced dozens of great players who have gone on to enjoy success on the national level.
Now count Lauren Wadas among the best of the best.
On Wednesday at In The Net Sports Complex, Wadas earned a couple of impressive career achievements, during Palmyra’s 10-0 non-league whitewashing of Berks Catholic. The Cougars’ senior midfielder/forward netted the 100th goal of her illustrious four-year career.
In so doing, Wadas moved into second place on Palmyra’s all-time goal-scoring list, behind only Kelli Fitzpatrick, Lebanon County’s all-time leader in goals scored.
Wadas has earned her place among the Cougars’ career scoring leaders as much with competitive drive, heady play and instincts as she has with natural ability. Wadas possesses a hard, accurate shot, a knack for being in the right place at the right time and outstanding field vision.
Earlier in the week, Wadas and the Cougars had bombed Mechanicsburg 8-0. Palmyra’s 2-0 week left it 13-3 on the season.
Currently, Palmyra is the top-rated Class AA team in the District Three power rankings. With Wadas leading the way, the Cougars are serious threats to capture upcoming District Three and PIAA Class AA championships.
