Bartow hosted Lakeland on Friday evening in a district 13 girls lacrosse match. The Yellow Jackets earned their 4th win of the season winning 12-7. Lakeland is a much improved team this year and pushed the Jackets hard in the 2nd half, closing the gap to 2 goals at one point. Bartow got ahead early with goals from Hannah Sanchez, Jae Patterson, and Myra Mir. At halftime the score was 7-2, and it appeared the Jackets had the game under control. In the second half a resurgent Lakeland team pushed hard, and it took a collective effort by the Jackets defense to stop the bleeding and turn the tide. The Jackets attack led by Are’Anna Stowers and Ayame Macedo were then able to pad the lead and see the game through. Bartow heads to Windermere Prep on Saturday to cap a very busy week.
