Northern California High School Lacrosse: Palo Alto Girls Lacrosse Looks To Defend 2010 Santa Clara Valley Athletic League (SCVAL) Title


The Palo Alto High School girls’ lacrosse team is looking forward to another strong season after a successful 2010 season that culminated in its first Santa Clara Valley Athletic League title.

The team ended its season with an overall record of 16-4 and a league record of 10-2 as the SCVAL champion. This season they hope to win leagues again as well as CCS.

“We’re working on facilitating the transition to a whole new chemistry on the field,” junior defender Meghan Byrd said. “Although many people think this is a rebuilding year, we’re definitely excited to start playing our games and proving them wrong.”

The Vikings’ main goal is to defend their league title while improving the skills of the younger team members.

Colorado High School Lacrosse: Fort Collins Boys Lacrosse Looks To Advance Farther In 2011 Class 5A Lacrosse Championships


Coach: Carey Smith, 13th year
Last year: 10-7, lost in Class 5A state quarterfinals to Arapahoe.

Players to watch: Teran Mawhinney, sr.; Ryan LaPlante, sr.; Alex Creech, sr.; Ethan Kitchell, sr.

Notes: The Vipers will look to Kitchell and Laplante for guidance in the backfield after losing a number of defensemen to graduation … Mawhinney, last year’s leading scorer, is back in the midfield … Fort Collins has big ambitions for the postseason.

Coach’s comment: “We want the team to overachieve. We haven’t beaten top-five teams in two years. We want to get ourselves back in contention for a state championship.”
