First, the Wappingers girls lacrosse team cashed in with a 17-11 win over host Ossining on Thursday, then came the social media hashtag: #LetsGetThisMoney

Senior Cailin Bahret once uttered that phrase and her teammates, amused and somewhat inspired, latched onto it. That became the Warriors’ rallying cry during its benchmark season.

Their victories often have been punctuated by a torrent of tweets with that slogan. The most recent win was no different, of course.

Jessica Lasaponara scored four goals, and Kayla Gaine and Bahret each added three for the Warriors. Jenna Fusco and Ellie Reck each scored twice, Alyssa Carpentieri had a goal and two assists, and Skylar Carpentieri made 13 saves.

Wappingers (8-8) clinched a playoff berth and enjoyed its most successful season “in at least four years,” coach Kerri Walsh said. They went 4-12 last year, now they’re rolling in the (figurative) dough.

Several scorers broke out, but freshman Skylar Carpentieri’s emergence as a solid goalie was a windfall. “It means a lot knowing I can contribute and help us make progress,” Skylar Carpentieri said. “We have a great bond and chemistry, and if that continues we can be great in the future.”

Wappingers’ first-round opponent will be determined when the Section 1 Class A bracket is released Wednesday. “We’re ready,” Walsh said. “Everyone has gotten comfortable in their roles and teamwork was a big improvement.”

It’s paid off.
