Trojan Lacrosse Update!

April 2nd, 2018

One More Quick Read - PHS Lacrosse Update!

Well, there are some lacrosse players and parents wondering why the boys and girls lacrosse scores weren't included in the Trojan Update. I told a few of them the very strict criteria for the boys team to make it into the update. These include:

  • Team must be unbeaten in league with at least four contests played.
  • Team must have excellent camaraderie and team work.
  • Team must have recently defeated cross-town rival Casa Grande in super competitive duel that came down to the final minute: Trojans 18 Gauchos 17!
  • Team must be ranked no lower than 70th in the state.
  • Team must be in Top 4 in NCS Division 2.

And look! They have met all the criteria! Well done, boys, and my apologies for not getting this in the regular update. Beside the nailbiter versus Casa, the boys have thumped Windsor and Rancho Cotate, and followed up the Casa win with a dominating 13-4 win over Cardinal Newman.

This week is practice focused with a battle at home versus the Novato Hornets coming up on Saturday, April 7th. If you are looking ahead, you might circle April 19th when the Trojans host Casa at Ellison Field. Go Trojans!

Girls LAX Holding Their Own

PHS Girls Lacrosse is also finding success on the new turf! With impressive pre-season wins over Alhambra and Terra Linda, the girls are currently 5-3 (2-3) with a recent strong win over Sonoma Academy. Before that, they battled in a tight game versus Casa, eventually dropping the contest 12-9.

The girls next host Windsor on April 13th. You might also circle April 17th when the Trojans take on Rancho Cotate at home for Senior Night. Well done, Trojans!
