Lake-Lehman ended Wyoming Seminary’s District 2 girls lacrosse reign and Crestwood fought off an upset bid by Wyoming Area Monday to advance to Wednesday’s Class 2A championship game.
Madison Lasinski scored three goals and three teammates added two each as a balanced attack allowed Lake-Lehman to become the first team to ever beat Wyoming Seminary in a district playoff game, 12-6.
Wyoming Seminary had won titles in all nine of the seasons that District 2 conducted playoffs in the sport.

Lake-Lehman (19-1) has won 18 straight since losing to Crestwood (14-2-1) and is scheduled to host the final Wednesday.
