East Ridge girls lacrosse: High section seeding for Raptors

The Raptors open section play this week as the top seed in the tournament.

The section championship game will be June 3 at Mounds View.

The Raptors finished the regular season with a rare 8-7 loss to Farmington. Shelby Klotz and Rachael Welzin had three goals apiece in the game, while Becky Genzler and Ashley Steffes each chipped in a goal. Goalie Maddie Kohlbeck stopped 18 of 25 Farmington shots on goal.

East Ridge finished the regular season with an 11-2 record.
