The MIAA released its playoff pairings on Friday and Westford Academy will enter the tournament as the No. 10 seed.
The Lady Grey Ghosts won't be the only Westford Academy lacrosse team in the postseason. In addition to the top-seeded girls lacrosse team, the boys lacrosse team learned on Friday their postseason fate as the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association released its brackets. Thanks to a regular season that featured a 12-8 record, the Grey Ghosts earned the No. 10 seed. As a result, Westford Academy will host Medford on Wednesday at 5 p.m. With a victory, the locals would advance to the first round to face Xaverian, the No. 7 seed in the tournament that earned a preliminary round bye. The date and time of that game has yet to be determined.

Despite rescheduling from rain on Saturday and graduation ceremonies on Friday, the Westford started off fresh, getting out to a 5-3 lead by the end of the first quarter thanks to a pair of goals by Jay Dreapeau. The Eagles brought the deficit down to one by halftime, and from there it was a see-saw battle until BC's Joe Buckley put things away with 2:53 left in the contest.

The boys' lacrosse team will host BC High on Saturday at 6 p.m. after their victory over Bridgewater-Raynham on Wednesday.
1-0, four more to go. Westford Academy boys' lacrosse had an impressive 14-4 regular season, but the only wins that matter now will be the five they need to obtain this year's Division 1 East MIAA championship.
