A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO CELEBRATE THE MEMBERS OF THE CHAPIN HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS LACROSSE TEAM FOR AN EXTRAORDINARY SEASON AND TO CONGRATULATE THEM ON WINNING THE 2019 SOUTH CAROLINA HIGH SCHOOL LEAGUE CLASS AAAAA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.

Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives is pleased to learn that the members of the Chapin High School girls lacrosse team won the state championship game on Saturday, April 27, 2019, at Irmo High School's W.C. Hawkins Stadium; and

Whereas, the Lady Eagles capped an extraordinary 16-0 season with their win over Fort Mill and earned their first state championship title in Class AAAAA when they defeated the Lady Yellow Jackets 9-6 in the championship match; and

Whereas, Chapin's senior-laden squad would not be denied a final chance at a championship. The Lady Eagles jumped out to a 2-0 lead early in the first half on goals by Sadie Salazar and Eden Ellison. After Shannon Rychener answered a Lady Yellow Jacket goal to make it 3-1, Fort Mill scored three unanswered goals over the final thirteen minutes of the first half; and

Whereas, after the two teams exchanged goals to open the second half, Chapin took charge. They outscored Fort Mill 5-1 over the final eighteen minutes with two goals by Riley Floyd and scores by Sadie Salazar, Jordan Green, and Angel Tisdale to seal the title victory; and

Whereas, in a sport that demands quickness and agility, strategy and strength, Coach Jen Green utilized her own athletic ability and training to mold a championship team and teach these athletes lessons that will prove invaluable throughout life, both on and off the field; and

Whereas, with great pride, the House salutes the fine athletes of the Chapin High School girls lacrosse team on this, their latest accolade, and the members expect to hear of the team's continued achievements in the days ahead. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, celebrate the members of the Chapin High School girls lacrosse team for an extraordinary season and congratulate them on winning the 2019 South Carolina High School League Class AAAAA state championship title.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Principal Michael Ames and Coach Jen Green of Chapin High School.
