Oak Mountain’s Women’s Lacrosse team had 99 wins since the program’s start in 2009 going into their game against rival Spain Park, Monday, March 20th. In their heated matchup, the Eagles pulled out a victory with a score of 11-8 to secure their 100th win in program history.

Senior midfielder, Ryanne Ritter, spoke on what this milestone means to her and the team, “We actually didn’t know about it until the night before. It’s something that approached us out of nowhere, but when we found out it felt really great to accomplish that. The program has been around for seven years and I’ve been a part of it for four. It’s pretty cool to know that the majority of wins have happened since I’ve been here, with us only losing one game since I’ve been playing as a freshman.”

Currently, the Eagles are 8-0 on the season and are chasing their fourth straight State Championship. The incredible success Oak Mountain has seen can not be explained without the mention of head coach, David Klementz, who has played a huge part in both the creation of the program and the program’s massive success.

“I’m glad I’ve been a part of this team. Our program has been on top and competing for championships with our coach. Coach has been there all seven years and has developed the system to make us the players we have wanted to be. He is the backbone of our team and without him, we definitely would not be where we are now,” Ryanne declared on behalf of Coach Klementz.

The Eagles will play Trussville on Thursday, March 23rd, to attempt to gain their ninth win on the season and the 101st in the program’s history.
