Expectations for Corona del Mar’s boys lacrosse team weren’t as high going into this season because of the loss of some key players to graduation.

But that only served as inspiration for Ryan Mix, The Orange County Register’s 2010 boys lacrosse player of the year.

“The entire season, we defied expectations,” Mix said. “No one else would have really believed we could do what we did the year before. We came out with really low rankings and low expectations, even from people on the team, and we came out and surprised everyone.”

“We got four more quarters to go,” Foothill coach Jon Fox said. “This is for Orange County. It feels great, these guys worked hard, it’s a new group of kids. It’s all about those guys, they worked hard and they earned it.

“We just hustled and I think we were able to win the battle in between the boxes this time and that made the difference.”

Foothill was led by Eric Adamson, who had his best game of the year scoring five goals.

“All the hard work paid off, all the practices and running,” Adamson said. “It wasn’t easy at all, this was probably our hardest victory, but we still need to work just as hard.”
