When Berwyn native Scottie Rose Growney chose to play lacrosse at the University of North Carolina, her ultimate goal was to win a national championship, writes Chris Goldberg for 

Mission accomplished.

Growney, who graduated from Conestoga High School, finished her five-year college career as an attacker at UNC by scoring her 56th goal of the season late in the national championship game to propel the Tar Heels to a 12-11 victory over Boston College.

UNC finished the season with a 22-0 record and its first title since 2016.

With the Tar Heels needing to score late in the game, Growney, who prefers shooting with her left hand, remembered her dad’s encouragement to use both hands and let rip the winning tally.

“It was such a storybook ending,” she said. “The last 18 seconds felt like 20 minutes. It went so slowly. I kept whipping my neck back to see the clock, and when it was over, it was an unforgettable feeling. There are no words to describe it. It makes me speechless.”
