The goal of the Lamorinda Girls Lacrosse Club is fun and success, and it achieved both this season.
The G15A Thunder team of eighth graders made the Northern California Junior Lacrosse Association playoffs for the first time ever. They won two playoff games and advanced to the semifinals, losing to Pleasanton, the eventual champions, in a very tight game. Jess Mucci, Mark Simmonds and Kellie Barker were the coaches.
Meanwhile, the G13A Flash were the first Lamorinda Girls team to ever make the NCJLA Championship game. This was a major accomplishment for them and the young club. The team was made up of sixth and seventh graders. They won two playoff games and made it to the finals. They lost to the Diablo Scorpions in the finals, but went 14-3 on the season. They were coached by Cristen Andrews and Mike McCauley.
The G13B Wind had a solid season, started to peak at the season's end, and won a game in their end-of-season tourney. The G11 Strike won 10 games after winning 1 last season and had great success against some of the top programs in the Bay Area. The G11 Quakes competed all season in their down year, but won their flight in their end-of-season tourney. The G9 Volts and Storm rolled through the season, and both did well in their end-of-season tourneys.
The club also has about 40-50 girls playing competitive, travel lacrosse for Tenacity Elite, the top girls' lacrosse program in Northern California, and another 30-40 playing in Tenacity Select, a new local travel lacrosse program.
The club capped off the season with an end-of-season party, which featured a coaches versus players game, and included an appearance in goal and a talk by Liz Hogan, the Team USA goalie and No. 1 pick in the first professional women's lacrosse league draft.
Registration for the 2017 Spring season starts on Sept. 15 for returning players and Oct. 1 for new players. For more information visit www.lamorindalacrosse.com.
