HAUPPAUGE - For the Hauppauge Lady Eagles lacrosse team, it takes more than just skill to hold an 18-0 record; it takes instilling fear into their opponents.

For Taylor Ranftle, she does that through an unusual pair of contact lenses that turn her eyes almost completely white.

Teammates say the lenses are a bit unnerving and possibly scare away the competition.

Ranftle isn't relying solely on the lenses; she's got the skills to put up 61 goals and 48 assists in the season.
