Sea King Lacrosse Stonger Than Ever
• The Palos Verdes High boys’ and girls’ lacrosse teams are headed for post-season action.
As Palos Verdes High School spring sports come to a close, lacrosse is the sport to watch.
Both boys’ and girls’ varsity teams are still on a roll that began last season when they were ranked third and eighth in the state, respectively.
Last year, the boys’ varsity team was among the top teams in the nation and is looking even better than last year.
They finished the regular season Thursday with a big road win over traditional power Mira Costa to win the Bay League championship with a 5-0 record, 16-2 overall. As of April 24, they are ranked tenth in the nation.
As for the girls’ varsity, they are ranked 38th in the nation.
The reason for the difference between this season and last season is clear: “We have two new coaches this year, an offensive coordinator who is setting up plays and putting our offense in good positions with new plays,” said senior Kyle McCann.
“We expect to win the Los Angeles finals, and after that we will play the winner of the Orange County bracket, and, hopefully, win that too, said McCann.
The team hopes to make it far into playoffs, and, as Luc Charbonnier said, “Our team goal is to pretty much win everything and become state champs!”
