Western High School Lacrosse: “Lacrosse Magazine” Ranks Cherry Creek Girls Lacrosse (CO) #1 Followed By Coronado (CA), La Costa Canyon (CA), Carondelet (CA) And Kent Denver (CO)
1. Cherry Creek (Colo.), 9-1 The Bruins knocked off former-No. 1 Carondelet (Calif.), 23-11, earning a signature victory for Colorado lacrosse. Since losing to St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.) on March 24, Cherry Creek has won six straight and is position for its 10th state championship.
2. Coronado (Calif.), 9-1 The Islanders opened the season with nine consecutive victories before losing 9-7 to Holy Cross (Md.). Coronado’s only other game last week — against Patrick Henry — was rained out, but the Islanders have a huge matchup April 19 against Torrey Pines (Calif.).
3. La Costa Canyon (Calif.), 10-1 The Mavericks picked up an impressive, 10-5 victory over Torrey Pines (Calif.). La Costa Canyon has now won nine consecutive games with upcoming tests against Mission Hills (Calif.) and Scripps Ranch (Calif.).
4. Carondelet (Calif.), 9-1 The Cougars won two of three games in their spring trip against a few of Colorado’s toughest teams. Cali Castagnola scored the game-winner in a 14-13 victory over Kent Denver and Kerianne Hunt scored the golden goal in a 15-14 defeat of Air Academy, but Carondelet lost the final game 23-11 to Cherry Creek.
5. Kent Denver (Colo.), 5-1 The Sun Devils fell just short in a 14-13 loss to California powerhouse Carondelet, but Kent Denver remains in the hunt for a league championship. A big game against No. 1 Cherry Creek is right around the corner.
6. Monte Vista-Danville (Calif.), 8-1 The Mustangs remain in the thick of the title race and should be refreshed after a two-week layoff. Monte Vista has won five consecutive games after a 16-6 loss to Carondelet. A rematch against Amador Valley — which they beat 8-7 in overtime earlier this season — looms large.
7. St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.), 10-2 The Wildcats split a pair of games against two of Texas’ strongest teams. St. Ignatius beat Cy-Fair, 13-7, to end the Iron Maidens’ eight-game winning streak, but the Wildcats fell just short against St. John’s, 16-13.
8. Air Academy (Colo.), 7-2 The Kadets’ only losses came against two of the West Coast’s toughest teams: Cherry Creek (Colo.) and Carondelet (Calif.). Air Academy had the final possession and a chance to tie the game against Carondelet but could not find the finishing touch in a 14-13 loss.
9. Lake Oswego (Ore.), 4-0 The Lakers get back to action after a two-week break. Lake Oswego’s toughest test to date comes against undefeated, 8-0 West Linn (Ore.), which is followed by a game against 6-1 Oregon City (Ore.).
10. Bingham (Utah), 11-0 The Miners have out-scored their opponents by an average of 10 goals per game, but Bingham is going to be put to the test against rival Alta (Utah).

Western High School Lacrosse: :”Lacrosse Magazine” Ranks Carondelet Girls Lacrosse (CA) #1 Followed By Kent Dover (CO), Amador Valley (CA), St. Ignatius Prep (CA) And Cherry Creek (CO)
1. Carondelet (Calif.), 7-1 After losing to Amador Valley (Calif.), the Cougars reeled off five consecutive wins, including an 18-7 victory over St. Ignatius (Calif.). Each team plays each other twice, so Carondelet still remains in the driver’s seat for a conference title. “The second time teams see each other will be big,” Carondelet coach Rick Jeffery said. The schedule doesn’t get any easier for Carondelet, which is gearing up for a competitive trip to Colorado to take on Kent Denver, Air Academy and Cherry Creek.
2. Kent Denver (Colo.), 3-0 The Sun Devils are off to another strong start after reaching the conference semifinals last season, returning from a spring break trip where they played two-time defending Arizona champs, Chaparral, and came away with a 21-8 victory. Kent Denver travels to league rival Denver East on Friday and will host Northern California powerhouse Carondelet next week.
3. Amador Valley (Calif.). 8-1 The Dons look dangerous and remain in the hunt for a conference championship with a signature victory over Carondelet (Calif.). Amador Valley shook off an overtime loss to Monte Vista-Danville with consecutive victories over state foes, California High (10-9) and San Ramon Valley (19-4).
4. St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.), 7-1 California earned some regional bragging rights when St. Ignatius knocked off former No. 1 Cherry Creek (Colo.), 11-8. Sophomore attacker Kate Mattimore had five goals and was “instrumental in orchestrating a composed effort in the attacking end,” coach Amy Harms said. Senior goalie Noelle Ruane had 10 saves on the day with only two turnovers on clears.
5. Cherry Creek (Colo.), 5-1 On a trip to California to match up with regional powers, Cherry Creek bounced back from an opening loss to St. Ignatius (Calif.) with dominant victories over Menlo School (18-10) and Palo Alto (20-8). The Bruins continue to churn out Division I recruits, and midfielder Tori Link recently committed to Colorado.
6. Coronado (Calif.), 8-0 The Islanders are off to torrid start with eight consecutive victories by an average margin of eight goals. Sophomore Martha Byrne has been a dominant force on draw controls and ground balls. “She’s a great athlete and a great kid,” coach Jessica Battle said.
7. Air Academy (Colo.), 5-1 The Kadets have been able to score goals in bunches this season, averaging 19 per game. Air Academy’s only loss was a 17-11 setback against Cherry Creek (Colo.), but the Kadets are still alive in the championship race with 11 games remaining on the schedule.
8. Bingham (Utah), 6-0 The Miners have rattled off seven consecutive wins to start the season, including a convincing 19-7 victory over regional and state power Alta (Utah). Attackman Olivia Winters has been especially dominant, and she buried seven goals in a 13-3 victory over West Jordan (Utah). Bingham has showed the balance and maturity for a deep post-season run.
9. La Costa Canyon (Calif.), 8-1 The Mavericks are riding an eight-game winning streak since losing 10-5 to Coronado (Calif.) in the second game of the season. The teams will meet again May 1. Coach Casey Rector is pleased with her team’s work ethic and the ability to learn from its mistakes.
10. Lake Oswego (Ore.), 4-0 The Lakers have all the talent to defend their state championship, and they have easily handled their four opponents. First-year goalie Julianna Ramey is already adapting well to the position, being supported by returning starting defenders Siobhan Mead and Kate Hearon.
