The Westwood Girls lacrosse team took another victory this past season with a 20-6 victory to claim the Division 1 State Championship on June 15th in Worcester. The championship was the fourth for the senior class in the last five years. Westwood kept expanding the lead, and three goals in the last two minutes blew the lead up to 10 at the half. Five different Wolverines scored during the first 25 minutes.
 
Following another championship season, one of the Westwood High School varsity girls lacrosse team's own has been crowned "Miss Lacrosse" by ESPNBoston.com.
 
Senior captain Laura McHoul, who graduated from WHS in May, received the designation this week, according to an ESPNBoston.com report.
