By John Fitts

MILFORD — In 8th grade, Emma Charron followed that time honored town tradition and wrote a letter to “older self” to open years later. Included was a goal – “win a state championship senior year, with my girls.”

On Saturday, Charron and her teammates did just that. They won the Class S State Championship with a 15-3 win over Somers in a game played at Jonathan Law High School.

“I knew we had a special team,” Charron said.

Sarah First, co-captain along with Charron, is another senior, ur – graduate, who came up through the Canton youth lacrosse program. The girls were two of the six starting seniors on this year’s team who did just that.

“That was the most incredible experience of my life with the best girls I could have possibly imaged to be with,” First said after Saturday’s win. “We’ve been waiting for this for so long and everyone just put their heart and soul out on that field today.”

“This is a special group,” added head coach Sean Cole. “It was super gratifying to see it through.”

Leading Canton in scoring was Grace Giancola with 6 goals, followed by Emma Charron with 3, Kaelyn Oliver with 3, Devon Daubert with 2 and Carly Atkinson with 1.
