Wyomissing senior and Washington & Lee commit Alexia Polyak

The date was May 1, 2009 and the score was 10-8.  That was the last time that the Wyomissing girls lacrosse team defeated Wilson...until Thursday.  The Spartans beat the Bulldogs 7-6 in West Lawn.  "Oh my gosh! I want to say that it's indescribable, but I honestly have too many words to say," emphasized Alexia Polyak.  She scored three goals as Wyomissing improved to (13-1, 7-1).  Wilson entered the game unbeaten in league play.  The Bulldogs reached the Class 3A state semifinals a season ago.  Sophomore Audrey Hurleman gave the Spartans a 3-1 edge with nine and a-half minutes left in the first half.  They were on top 4-3 at halftime.  Temple commit Jenna Facciolli found the back of the net twice in less than three minutes to tie it at 5-5 with 11:43 remaining.  She finished with five goals for the (11-4-1, 7-1) Bulldogs.  Abby Zechman put Wyomissing back in front with 7:25 to go.  Polyak gave the Spartans a two-goal cushion with just under five minutes to play.  Facciolli scored again with two and a-half minutes on the clock, but Wyomissing was able to hold on.  "We played so well as a team. Every single member of this team has a part to play. It really means so much that I get to be a part of such a great program," said Polyak with a big smile.  She leads Berks County with 56 goals.  Polyak will continue her lacrosse career at Washington and Lee University.  Freshman Kacey Maggs provided two goals and an assist.  Her twin sister, Skylar, made six saves.  Hurleman, who added three assists, and Zechman were part of the Spartans' BCIAA and District 3 championship basketball team.  Polyak is one of just two seniors on this year's roster.  "I just can't wait to come back and watch them continue to flourish, continue to grow. This is a program that everyone needs to watch out for," she replied.  Polyak talked about her favorite teachers and musical artists with Paul Roberts of SV Sports.  She also gave a Netflix recommendation.
