Issaquah girls win state lacrosse title in a thriller

Katie Bucy got a second chance and made the most of it, scoring the game winner May 16 with under a minute remaining to give Issaquah an 11-10 victory over Lake Sammamish and its first Washington high school girls state lacrosse championship.

Bucy, a Skyline High School senior who will play next year at Missouri’s Lindenwood University, delivered the winner on a free-position shot after a goal just seconds earlier was disallowed on a shooting-space violation.

“That’s the biggest goal ever,” Bucy said while celebrating with teammates from Skyline, Issaquah and Liberty high schools. “It was hit or miss, and this one was a hit.”
