Coronado Lacrosse Club’s (CLC) 5th/6th grade ‘Green’ team won the San Diego Girls Lacrosse Association’s 5/6 Grade Open Division Championships this past weekend. The team overcame rain and wind to take the final lead with less than 30 seconds on a goal by Sydney DeMaio. Not only was the team undefeated, 15-0, on the season, but they also earned the first-ever CLC championship this season. Led by head coach Kirstyn Atkinson (Northwestern), who is also head coach for the Coronado High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse, and by assistant Ali Jones (Navy).
Additionally, CLC celebrates their 3rd/4th grade green team who went undefeated this season with a record of 11-0. The team was led by coaches Jada Cade, Coronado High School junior Katie Campion, and David Kieffer.
“CLC has grown into a force to be reckoned with in Southern California girls lacrosse. We do it the right way, putting the player first and building these young leaders through superior coaching. I’m extremely proud of what all of us have built,” says CLC president Jim Fabiszak.
CLC had a record number of 115 girls participating across nine teams ranging from kindergarten through eighth grade this spring. CLC will open registration for the fall season in June 2019. Registration information can be found at www.coronadolacrosseclub.com.
