Nike/US Lacrosse West Region High School Girls Top 10: #1 Foothill-Santa Ana, Air Academy, Chatfield, Lake Oswego And Bishop’s School

April 8, 2014

April 8, 2014

1. Foothill-Santa Ana (Calif.), 7-0
The Knights continue to roll through their untarnished season, dominating on defense. Foothill-Santa Ana has not allowed more than nine goals per game and knocked off El Dorado (Calif.) and Westview (Calif.) last week, defeating them 16-0 and 19-7, respectively. The Knights face a tough test this week against Newport Harbor (Calif.), a 10-1 squad looking to hand Foothill-Santa Ana its first loss.

2. Air Academy (Colo.), 5-0
The Kadets remained undefeated going into their break and will play its first game in two weeks on April 8 against Centaurus (Colo.), which is 6-1 on the season. The Air Academy Kadets are gunning for a top spot in the Colorado playoffs.

3. Chatfield (Colo.), 3-0
The Chargers have been explosive on offense, trumping Wheat Ridge (Colo) 19-3 and Chapparal 26-16 last week. Chatfield has been eliminated in the second round of the state playoffs for three consecutive seasons, but the club appears ready to advance to the next step this season.

4. Lake Oswego (Ore.), 5-0
The Lakers enter the poll with five-straight victories to open the season, notching two significant regional wins over California’s Torrey Pines and La Costa Canyon. Lake Oswego has its biggest regular season game this week against undefeated state rival West Linn (Ore.).

5. The Bishop’s School (Calif.) 5-0
This past week, the Knights continued their impressive run with an 18-3 victory over the Francis Parker School (Calif.). However, looking ahead, they have three consecutive league matchups against La Jolla Country Day School (Calif.), Sante Fe Christian (Calif.) and Pacific Ridge (Calif.), which should sort out the California Coastal Girls standings.

6. Amador Valley (Calif.), 5-1
The Dons were upset by La Costa Canyon (Calif.), 9-8, in overtime for their first loss of the season, yet were able to bounce back with victories over Coronado (Calif.), Torrey Pines (Calif.) and Poway (Calif.). Amador Valley has now set its eyes on this week’s game against St. Ignatius (Calif.), which also suffered its first loss last week.

7. Denver East (Colo.), 5-0
The Angels have been one of the most dominant teams in the region this season. After an approximate two-week break, Denver East is back in action against Thomson Valley (Colo.), hoping to secure a top spot in the Colorado playoffs.

8. Centaurus (Colo.), 6-1
The Warriors have reset and rebooted in Colorado after a trip to the East Coast, handing Colorado Academy (Colo.) its first loss of the season, 14-8. Centaurus will now turn to face No. 2 Air Academy, another undefeated team, making it the biggest matchup in Colorado this week.

9. Carondelet (Calif.), 5-2
The Cougars picked up their biggest win of the season, handing St. Ignatius (Calif.) its first loss in an 11-7 bout this past week. Carondelet has another challenge this week with a home matchup against Menlo School (Calif.).

10. St. Ignatius (Calif.), 6-0
The Wildcats had a solid 17-9 victory over the sixth-ranked Menlo School. Kate Mattimore led the way with four goals and two assists, while Alex Robertson finished with five goals. St. Ignatius then fell 11-7 to Carondelet, which entered the poll this week.


Lake Oswego (Ore.) has seven seniors who have been playing together since their freshman year. That experience could bode well for the Lakers in the playoffs this season, especially if they hope to knock off defending state champion, West Linn.

“They work really hard and are really motivated after a very sub-par performance in the state finals last year,” coach Lauren Anderson said. “The seniors won state titles in 2011 and 2012, so they would like to end their career by getting that cup back.”

Some of Lake Oswego’s top players include middies Lilly Newman, Madeline Reece and freshman goalie Riley Hertford, who have committed to Colorado, Oregon and USC, respectively. Other key players are Lexi Cheetham (Louisville) and Abby Bergevin, who is still being recruited by several Division I programs.

The level of play has improved in Oregon and college coaches are taking notice. Lake Oswego traveled to California this season and beat Coronado, 12-7, Torrey Pines 10-9 and La Costa Canyon 10-9.

Northern California High School Boys Lacrosse: De LaSalle Boys Lacrosse (18-6) Defeat Foothill To Win Second Consecutive CIF-North Coast Section Championship


Chris Pereira, one of the top offensive weapons for the De La Salle High lacrosse team, didn’t do any scoring for most of Friday’s North Coast Section boys final against East Bay Athletic League rival Foothill.

But when he did come through, it was in a big way. He scored the tying goal with 10 seconds left in the fourth period and scored the winner at the 2:46 mark in double overtime to give the Spartans (18-6) back-to-back titles with an 11-10 victory at Dublin High.

Foothill Girls Varsity Lacrosse Spotlight: Natalie Cummins Will Play For Ivy League Brown University

Graduating Senior Natalie Cummins has been recruited by and accepted into Brown University in Providence, RI, to play for the Women’s Lacrosse Team in Fall 2008. A top student-athlete, Natalie was First Team All-Orange County, Tustin Co-Player of the Year, Co-Captain, and Knight of the Year for the 2008 Lady Knights Varsity Squad which lost to Los Alamitos in the Orange County Semi Finals. She played Center Middie for the Varsity Girls Team and was a 4 year Varsity Starter. She controlled 60% of her draws, scored 40 goals, had 22 assists, and fielded 102 groundballs.

Brown University, founded in 1764 and a leading Ivy League institution, is the only major research university in the nation where undergraduates design their own course of study. Barron’s Guide to the Most Competitive Colleges has described Brown as “the perfect university for self-motivated and confident students who desire an education [they create] on their own terms.”
