Girls’ lacrosse lost 10-4 at the hands of Monte Vista on Tuesday March 25.

While Campolindo is in Division II, Monte Vista, a larger school, is a Division I program.

Going in, the girls knew that it would be a difficult game. Monte Vista’s roster is comprised of many good club lacrosse players. “Monte Vista is a really tough competitor. They’re Division I, and we have never played them before. But, I knew 10 of them because they play traveling lacrosse with us,” said junior Bridget Coleman.

“We knew it was going to be a difficult game because they are all pretty skilled,” she said.

Coleman believed her team held its own, playing good defense. “I thought we held up against them. At half time it was only 4-3, which was a pretty good score for us, and I think we played really great defense against them. Every time they tried to switch us on offense, we would just stay there and make them get by,” she said.

“I think we need to work on things other than running it,” Coleman added. “We dropped the ball a lot, so we need to work on being calm under pressure.”

Coleman is coming back from an ankle injury. “I’m still kind of injured, so it’s been hard for me. My offense was a little rough yesterday,” she explained.

The team now looks ahead to the second round in the DFAL’s round-robin format. “I hope to come back and beat all of the teams we lost to because our league was a little rough at first, but now that we have our whole team together we can focus on playing as a team,” Coleman said.
