Lady Mustangs are champs

The Monte Vista Women's Lacrosse Team won the North Coast Section Championship for D-1 athletics for the first time in the school's history. The Mustangs final game was a victory Saturday afternoon against California High, 17-8, held at Dublin High School.

Senior Jillian Bush scored five goals to lead No. 14 Monte Vista to the win, while senior Aimee Dewan and junior Lauren Goerz each added four points on three goals and one assist. Monte Vista junior goalie Sarah Tucker saved 12 shots.

Monte Vista led 7-4 at halftime and began to pour it on during the final 25 minutes. Goerz scored two quick goals to start the second half, and Monte Vista never looked back.

The Monte Vista men made it to the NCS finals in lacrosse then lost to De La Salle, 17-5, on Saturday. Both men and women beat Amador Valley High at Monte Vista on May 20 to get to the finals.

It is nice to see some publicity for women's lacrosse. This team deserves it!
