Local players lead NorCal All-Stars
The Northern California Junior Lacrosse Association Under-13 All-Star team got great performances from four local players as they went 4-1 at the U.S. Lacrosse Festival in Kings Island, Ohio, in mid June. Players Daniel Aguilar, Josh Miller, Wiley Bonham and Niko Souza of the Diablo Scorpions were key members of the NorCal Grizzlies, as the team, made up of players from throughout Northern California, traveled across the country to take on some of the nation's best junior lacrosse players. NorCal beat the Michigan All-Stars, 8-3; Colorado Select, 7-1; Central Pennsylvania, 8-4; and Washington, 8-1. The lone loss was a 3-2 final against South New Jersey in a thriller.
