United States High School Lacrosse Female Players of the Week

Wantagh (NY) junior Eva Ingrilli helped spark a win from behind against rivals North Shore (NY) by scoring the game-winning goal with 16 seconds left in regular time and then won control of the toss that followed to seal the victory.

The USA Women’s 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, Mid-West and West – featured in our high school coverage.

NORTHEAST

Eva Ingrilli, Wantagh (NY)

If Eva Ingrilli proved anything at the start of her junior season, it’s that the Wantagh offense has a flair for drama. North Carolina’s commitment helped spark a victory from behind against rivals North Shore (NY) by scoring the game-winning goal with 16 seconds left in regulation time, then winning control of the ensuing coin toss to seal the victory.

Ingrilli, who also had two goals and two assists in a 17-9 win over Syosset (NY) to open the season, had three goals and an assist in the win. A year ago, Ingrilli had 31 goals, 27 assists, 14 turnovers and 18 rushes as a sophomore. “She took over this game at all ends of the field. She caused big turnovers on the defensive end, won draw checks and scored important goals, including the match-winner,” said Wantagh manager Robyn Rooney. “A real player, she refuses to quit and does whatever the team needs to be successful at all times.”
