Major (Maryland) added 22 goals, 46 draws, and 33 ground balls in 2019 for the Falcons. Polk (Michigan) pitched in on that Falcons squad with 25 draw controls, six goals, and three assists.

Girls lacrosse wasn’t played in Carroll in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which cost these four players their junior high school seasons.
