American Heritage rolls to berth in state girls lacrosse championship


American Heritage sophomore Caitlyn Wurzburger is the All-American, but teammate Allegra Catalano looked more like one of the country’s best, scoring four goals in an 11-5 American Heritage win over Vero Beach in the state semifinals Thursday night.

A junior commit to Louisville, Catalano dominated the Fighting Indians (20-5) from the get-go, scoring the game’s first two goals as the Stallions (20-1) raced to an 8-2 halftime lead.

A 2017 All-American as just a sophomore, Wurzburger scored two goals, the second of which capped the victory. Though she had constant pressure throughout, which prevented her from scoring more, Wurzburger often set her teammates up throughout the victory.

Megan Mangines scored twice for the Stallions. Kylie Hazen, Anna Palmisano, and Nicole Scroggie all added goals for Heritage, which advances to face Lake Highland Prep in the state championship match at 9 p.m. Friday. Lake Highland Prep advanced Thursday with a 13-3 rout of Oviedo-Hagerty.
