The Okemos varsity girls’ lacrosse team won the regional championship on Friday, June 2, by a score of 18-6. The lady Chiefs faced off against the Panthers of Dewitt, whom they had previously beaten 9-6 during the regular season. Okemos was led by juniors Jensen Adair and Emily Renfrew. Adair netted five goals for the Chiefs, her career high.

“I knew this was a big game and if we didn’t hold our own that our season would be over,” Adair said in an interview with the Lansing State Journal. “I just knew I had to play my best game.”

Renfrew added three goals along with 4 assists. The Chieftains win capped off a playoff run including a 21-7 win against East Lansing in the quarterfinals and a 15-9 win against Haslett in the semifinals. Okemos’ next game is the state semifinal on Wednesday, June 7, against Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kingswood, the top ranked division two team. To defeat the Cranes, the Chieftains will have to bring their A game. Okemos will rely heavily on two other juniors, co-captains Grace Bielby and Melaina Grewal, who were recently announced as US All-Americans. The pair have both eclipsed the 100 point mark this season, along with teammate Alyssa Karber, who is also a junior. If the Chiefs prevail, they will advance to play the winner of the other semifinal featuring East Grand Rapids and Farmington Hills Mercy.

“We’ve been working really hard this year to prepare for the state tournament, so it’s an awesome opportunity to be able to play in the semis,” Grewal said.
