Orange County High School Lacrosse: Foothill Knights Lacrosse Defeats El Toro Chargers 6-5 On April 2


 Foothill Knights El Toro 2009El Toro Varsity Lacrosse Coach Richard Knox had the Chargers playing rival Foothill High School all even into the fourth quarter at home Thursday afternoon. El Toro led Foothill 3-1 at the end of the first half.

In a thrilling final seven minutes, the Knights scored 2 critical goals, the final goal by middie #2  Patrick Douglas proving to be the difference as Foothill improves to 8-3 on the season.

LaxBuzz was able to get Foothill Head Coach Jon Fox to comment on the game:

 

Foothill Knights Lacrosse Coach Jon Fox: “Tradition holds that it is a 1 goal game. In one of the oldest rivalry games in Orange County lacrosse, league foes ET and FHS had another exciting match up and it goes to show that nothing else matters when it is a rival game." LaxBuzz Photo

“Tradition holds that it is a 1 goal game. In one of the oldest rivalry games in Orange County lacrosse, league foes ET and FHS had another exciting match up and it goes to show that nothing else matters when it is a rival game.
 It was a great come from behind win for the Knights. We needed to prove to ourselves that we could overcome adversity late in a game and we did, and for that I’m pleased.

 

Overall our skill work in the game was the worst I’ve seen, especially the first half, when we couldn’t seem to catch or throw a ball. Both teams defenses and goalies played outstanding, and the 8 saves in the first quarter by ET Nick Carasco kept the momentum in ET favor, but numerous point blank saves by FHS goalie Nathan Kleponis, throughout all 4 quarters kept the chargers at bay and allowed FHS the opportunity to catch up and then go ahead….
FHS had great production from the sophomore class with Att Cam Cole scoring the 2 goals to bring it to a tie, and middie Coop Pickell scoring the go ahead goal…”

Orange County High School Lacrosse Alert: Email Saddleback Valley Unified School District To Support Lacrosse Programs At El Toro, Mission Viejo, Laguna Hills, And Trabuco Hills High Schools


SIGN PETITION TO SAVE LACROSSE PROGRAMS

To:  SVUSD Board of Directors/ High School Principals

To: Saddleback Valley Unified School District

Ginny Fay Aitkens
Don Sedgwick
Dore J. Gilbert
Nancy W. Kirkpatrick
Suzie R. Swartz
Trevor Geller
SVUSD – High School Principals

Board Members,

It has come to the attention of the Saddleback Valley Community that the status/ and or funding of C.I.F. lacrosse is in jeopardy of being eliminated throughout the Saddleback Valley Unified School District. This will have a devastating effect on hundreds of players, their families, fans, and upcoming lacrosse players.

We are asking you to:
• Not “Eliminate” Lacrosse from the Saddleback Valley Unified School District
• Not “Eliminate” Lacrosse funding from the Saddleback Valley Unified School District

Please consider:
• Lacrosse is considered to be America’s first sport, born of the North American Indian,
• Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing team sports in the United States.
• Lacrosse carries large rosters allowing many HS men and women to participate
• Youth participation in the sport has grown over 500% since 1999 to nearly 250,000
• No sport has grown faster at the high school level over the last 10 years
• There are now an estimated 200,000 high school players.
• Lacrosse is also the fastest-growing sport over the last six years at the NCAA level
• There are more than 500 college club programs, including nearly 200 women’s teams that compete at the US Lacrosse Intercollegiate Associates level, giving many opportunities to lacrosse players
• Many former SVUSD lacrosse students have benefited from scholarships and opportunities to play in college.

Possible Solutions:
• Look for ways to cut expenses within the lacrosse budget (Competitive bids for field lining etc.)
• Take proportionately from each sanctioned sport distributing the budget burden out for the least impact.
• Consider the budget cuts that have impact on the least amount of SVUSD students and families.
• If you are not willing to have the other sports shoulder the budget crunch alongside lacrosse, please continue to sanction C.I.F. lacrosse and allow programs to self fund

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

Southern California Lacrosse: Saddleback Valley Unified School District To Vote On Eliminating Funding For High School Lacrosse At March 10 Meeting At Mission Viejo High School; Concerned Parents Should Attend And Support Lacrosse!!


missionviejolacrosselogoBeing the newest CIF sport, Lacrosse has topped the budget cut list foreltorolacrosselogo Saddleback Valley Unified School District (SVUSD: El Toro, Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, Trabuco Hills High Schools).

 

    Click here to send an e-note to the Board

    or call Superintendent  Steven L. Fish, EdD at (949) 586-1234 x3200

 

lagunahillslacrosse1To save the school board from making such an ill-advised decision, we must rally all of the lacrosse community and show our strength in numbers at the next SVUSD board meeting (there is no other chance; it will be voted on at that meeting):

 

Tuesday, March 10, 6:15pm, in the Performing Arts Theatre at Mission Viejo High School (note: this is not the usual meeting place; I presume it was moved in anticipation of a large crowd speaking about cuts; including lacrosse). Arrive by 5:45pm (to fill out speaker cards, preparation, etc).

 

If the program you’re involved with has a game that night, it is more important for the parents to attend the board meeting.

 

All of the lacrosse community needs to get involved in this. Although this immediate issue involves four high schools in one district, we need involvement and attendance from all of lacrosse: Capo District, youth lacrosse, private schools, etc.

 

Prior to the March 10 meeting, emails and letters need to be sent to the district (board members and superintendent). That information will follow in another email.

Although time is short, it may be helpful to form a steering committee to help organize (we did that in 2006 with the initial CIF drive). An ideal committee would include 1 or 2 representative(s) from each program from each school. Please contact me if you’re able to help and are involved with either boys or girls lacrosse at any of the four high schools.

 

Thank you!
