BRIGHTON – Brighton’s girls’ lacrosse coaches were expecting a big season from junior Amanda Granader but she wasn’t so sure.
“I went into this season like, ‘Oh, I’m just going to have fun,” she said. “Luckily, my teammates were there for me and gave me great support.
What Granader has done is fill the net in record time in her first season as a university starter.
With four goals on Wednesday in the 21: 7 quarter-final win against Saline, Granader increased their season to 104.
It is within two gates of the Livingston County record set by Hartlands Elena Salazar two years ago. According to MHSAA records, only 12 girls in Michigan’s history have scored 100 goals this season. Granader ranks ninth on the single season list.
“We expected her to hit a lot,” said Brighton assistant coach Jeff Street. “I expected her to have at least 100 points.”
