Lucy Rickerson has a bright future as a sportscaster, judging from her narration when she was asked to describe her goal that put The Bishop’s School up 2-1 in their eventual 4-3 win over visiting Pacific Ridge High School Jan. 28: “I got to play that great ball through the midfield, and I got a touch on it, and the goalie (Adriana Carrol of the Firebirds) made an amazing save, and she came out and she dove for it, and (teammate) Gretchen (Cash) went right in. She completely powered through the back line. The goalie made another amazing save. The ball bounced out, and I just took a shot.” Without a breath or pause — great stuff!
