Anchors & Crowns Lacrosse Club, a compilation of players from the two rival high schools in the Newport Beach area – Corono del Mar HS and Newport Harbor HS – compiled a 5-0 record to capture the Varsity Division of the inaugural boys’ tournament at Sand Storm. Junior goalie Michael Ortlieb (Corono del Mar) was named tournament Most Valuable Player after making 11 saves to lead Anchors & Crowns to a 9-4 victory over northern California entry Team Cadillax in the championship game. Sophomore attackman Jack Ortlieb (Corono del Mar) and junior attackman Riley Robinson (Newport Harbor) were the top goal scorers for Anchors & Crowns while junior midfielder Michael Keasey (Corono del Mar) was a force between the lines. A stout defense was led by Drexel-bound senior Donald Dalton (Corono del Mar) and junior Andrew Wilson (Newport Harbor).
“Many of these kids grew up playing youth lacrosse together so teamwork and togetherness come naturally despite the high school rivalry,” Anchors & Crowns head coach G.W. Mix said. “We received outstanding play from our defense and goalie throughout the tournament.”
