USA Lacrosse Magazine Staff

The USA Lacrosse Players of the Week recognize the most outstanding individual performances in high school girls’ lacrosse in each of the five regions — Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South, Midwest and West — outlined in our high school coverage.


Alexa Spallina, Mount Sinai (N.Y.)

Mount Sinai (N.Y.) entered the Suffolk Class C playoffs as the No. 6 seed, but the Mustangs are in the county final and a super sophomore is a big reason why.

Alexa Spallina had three goals and four assists, including a free position goal with 2:32 left in the second half, to put the Mustangs in front 9-8 in a 10-9 victory over second-seeded Sayville (N.Y.) in the Suffolk Class C semifinals. Spallina also had three goals and an assist in a 7-6 victory over No. 3 Westhampton (N.Y.) in the opening round.

“Alexa is unbelievable,” Mount Sinai coach Shayna Pirreca told Newsday after the game. “I knew the second she got put on the free position that she was taking it and she was going to score. Not a doubt in my mind. We were so proud of her because that’s a lot of pressure.”

Also notable: Charley Bacigalupo, Sacred Heart (Conn.); Sabrina Boyle, Our Lady of Mercy (N.Y.); Jenna Soto, Smithtown East (N.Y.); Payton Tini, Locust Valley (N.Y.)

Lydia Colasante, Tatnall (Del.)

Colasante scored eight goals to lead second-seeded Tatnall to a 21-6 win over seventh-seeded Caesar Rodney (Del.) in the quarterfinals of the DIAA girls lacrosse tournament Saturday. The senior midfielder hit a milestone with her 300th career goal during the game. She also had a pair of assists to help the Hornets advance to take on third-seeded Archmere (Del.) in the semifinals. The championship is slated for May 25 at Delaware State. Colasante is committed to Boston College.

Isabelle Hammond, Cardinal Gibbons (N.C.)

Isabelle Hammond closed out the season in impressive fashion, notching hat tricks in all five contests in the month of May leading Cardinal Gibbons to a state championship. Hammond scored four times in her squad’s 14-10 win over Charlotte Catholic (N.C.) in the title game. She also had three goals and two assists in Cardinal Gibbons’ 19-4 win over Topsail (N.C.) in the semifinals. The junior committed to Arizona State scored 70 goals this season.

Also notable: Molly Allen, Sacred Heart (Ky.); Kate Daniels, Charlotte Catholic (N.C.)

Angie Conley, Hinsdale Central (Ill.)

The Red Devils enter the postseason on a seven-game win streak and senior Angie Conley is a major reason why. She started the week with her second straight seven-point performance, tallying three goals and four assists in an 11-7 win over York (Ill.). Remarkably, she played a role in seven of the Red Devils’ 11 goals against the Dukes. She then added two goals and two assists against Lyons in Hinsdale Central’s regular-season finale, marking 12 straight games with at least three points.

Also notable: Molly Allen, Sacred Heart (Ky.); Mia Darr, University School of Milwaukee (Wisc.); Reese Napier, Hinsdale Central (Ill.); Sivanna O’Brien, Lakeville South (Minn.); Addie Shevitz, New Trier (Ill.); Tori Tomalia, Carmel (Ind.)

The Mustangs capped a perfect season with their eighth straight title and ninth overall. Corkins, a UNC commit, finished the season with 35 goals and 26 assists.
