“We scrimmage at practice sometimes, but it was fun to do it in an official environment,” said Theresa Sherry, director of BearLax. “It was pretty spirited, but at the end we had a whole club cheer, which was pretty special.”

Sherry and her teams have qualified for the US Lacrosse U15 National Championship in previous years, under the NorCal Elite Green name.

“We decided to take the BearLax name and keep that chemistry going instead of having two different groups,” Sherry said. “A lot of these kids have been to Florida before and were at the West Championships in Phoenix last year. They know the deal.”

Sherry’s squads beat two other teams in the semifinals that are bound for Orlando July 23-25. The 2016 team knocked off fourth-seeded Desert Heat Black (Ariz.), 9-2, while the 2017 team withstood a challenge from the second-seeded Pacific Falcons (Calif.), 8-5.

“This was a good warm-up, no pun intended,” Sherry said. “In the next few weeks, they’ll know how to prepare for the heat and the speed of play. There’s a lot of excitement around going [back to the national championship].”
