Western High School Lacrosse: Cherry Creek Girls Lacrosse (CO) Is #1 In Latest “Lacrosse Magazine” Rankings Followed By Coronado (CA), St. Ignatius Prep (CA), Mullen (CO) And Bainbridge Island (WA)

West Region Top 10

1. Cherry Creek (Colo.) – 11-0 – There’s never been debate about the Bruins’ dominance in the West. They’ve proved it with their second victory against a No. 2 state-ranked team in less than two weeks, including a rout of Mullen. Cherry Creek opened that game scoring eight unanswered goals and then began the second half with four consecutive goals.

2. Coronado (Calif.) – 10-0 – The Islanders’ 12-10 victory March 29 over Torrey Pines may be a preview in rectifying last season’s CIF finals loss.

3. St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.) – 12-1 – The Wildcats’ 14-4 win over La Jolla on Monday was their seventh straight since suffering their only loss of the season to West Region No. 1 Cherry Creek. They overcame inconsistent performances against Menlo and Monte Vista. SI’s 17-16 victory over Menlo required nine unanswered goals after giving up a 4-0 lead, allowing six consecutive goals for an 11-11 tie with 8:03 remaining, forcing overtime with a goal with 14 seconds left and securing the win in double overtime. The Wildcats’ 11-7 victory Saturday over Monte Vista consisted of SI starting the game with a 3-1 deficit, scoring three unanswered goals and then holding the Mustangs scoreless for the final eight minutes.

4. Mullen (Colo.) – 7-2 – The Mustangs’ flat performance against Cherry Creek shows they have plenty of work to do before being serious contenders for a state championship.

5. Bainbridge Island (Wash.) – 5-0 – The Spartans outscored their opponents, 33-11, last week. Junior midfielder Bea Sheffer was largely responsible for that by scoring 18 goals.

6. Foothill-Orange County (Calif.) – 10-0 – The Knights’ seven-game winning streak has consisted of both blowouts and close victories. They enjoyed a 13-12 nailbiter Friday over Beckman and a 12-10 upset March 25 over Los Alamitos, breaking the latter’s 46-game winning streak. And Foothill-Orange County also finished with a 15-8 victory March 30 over Denver East and a 16-0 drubbing April 4 of Yorba Linda.

7. Carondelet (Colo.) – 10-2 – For the first time in 10 games, the Cougars allowed an opponent to score in double digits. Fortunately for Carondelet, it maintained its high-octane offense with a 22-13 victory Friday over Amador Valley.

8. Alta (Utah) – 10-0 – The Hawks’ undefeated record extends to last season, when it won a state championship over Riverton. It’s a good chance Alta will be back there again.

9. Oregon City (Ore.) – 9-0 – In a rematch of last year’s title game, the Pioneers secured a 10-9 victory over Wilson April 4 thanks to scoring the game winner with 28 seconds remaining. Oregon City followed that up last week with a 14-11 overtime win over Lake Oswego, the No. 3 team in the state.

10. Torrey Pines (Calif.) – 6-2 – TP just came off a close, nail-biting loss Coronado, but still remain one of the area’s best schools after winning last year’s CIF title.

Game of the Week

No. 2 Coronado at No. 3 St. Ignatius Prep, Tuesday

The Islanders will have the opportunity to secure a victory against a ranked team in the West region three weeks after doing so against Torrey Pines.
