ASU Athletic Director confirms intent to add Womens Lax
Another Pac 12 school is adding lacrosse - it would be a logical next step for Utah, Washington, and/or Arizona to add lax based on regional growth of the sport. Other Pac 12 schools may follow. Great news for top 2017 players that are still looking.
“We don’t want to be the largest public institution in the country with only 22 varsity sports," Arizona State athletic director Ray Anderson is quoted in the story. "Now we’re at 23 with hockey. We’ll be at 24 with triathlon. And very likely go to 25 with women’s lacrosse by this time next year.”
Arizona State currently has a club women’s lacrosse team that competes in the US Lacrosse Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse Associates.
Arizona State would become the sixth Pac-12 school with a varsity women's lacrosse program, joining Cal, Colorado, Oregon, Southern Cal and Stanford.
A mixed team of Frosh/8th graders headed up to UCSB Feb 15/16 for a two day tournament. The team went undefeated in pool play, easily won their semi final, and then took Aliso Niguel HS to overtime in the championship game. Having beat Aliso in pool play 9-6, the rematch proved to be more tightly contested - and a lot more physical. After trailing at half by 1, the young guns held a 2 goal lead going into the final 4 minutes, ...but Aliso Niguel was able to tie it in the final minute. Going into OT man down, the team was unable to hold off Aliso. A solid showing all around - Great Job Girls!
For the past 7 Years Catlin Brown has carried the burden of being not only the face of the Pacific Falcons, but doing so as my daughter. This past weekend Catlin participated in her 7th and final Sandstorm as a player. And for the 2nd year she led her team into the championship game with the same ease and unselfish play that has defined her lacrosse career to date. Cat has been a teammate, and trusted friend, to most of the top players in San Diego for the past 8 years. It has been a pleasure to inform opposing coaches, refs, players, parents, and scouts that she is my daughter. Be it a CIF game, Club tournament, NT Event, UnderArmor Showcase, or U15 Nationals, whether they were offering praise or expressing their "frustrations", I remained a proud coach and father. And while I may no longer be her coach, Cat will always be my favorite Pacific Falcon. Thank you for countless adventures and your perseverance through the recruiting process - I. love you Cat - Dad/Coach Joe
Words cannot adequately express my respect and admiration for this outstanding group of young women. They stuck together and supported each other every step of the way. A collection of players from Coronado, Mission Hills, Scripps, Del Norte, Westview, Los Al, Bishops, and La Costa Canyon. Many 2014' from San Diego have worn a Pacific Jersey along the way, and I am proud to have coached them all, but this group stayed the course. They proved that the power of many is greater than the interests of any one. Thank You for being such great role models to those that follow in your footsteps! Coach Lyndsey and I have enjoyed the ride and will always treasure the memories - Coach Joe

The Pacific Falcons went 14-1 last weekend at their annual event
The teams all played well - many played games short handed &/or with guest players
Our MS team played most games with 7 or 8 field players & still won every game
Our weekend was highlighted by an all program game Sun afternoon
Thank you to our great players, parents, and coaches for all you do to support the club
The U15 Team played great despite the weather - the hottest temps in CA in nearly 100 years.
Congratulations to the team - well done Coach Erin and Coach Kristin!

Pacific Falcons goals against 26, PSS goals against 32. The PSS team wanted to play a rematch, however due to schedule issues we were unable to accommodate such a request. As a consolation /sign of sportsmanship we opted to give the tournament trophy to PSS.
Final Results at SummerSplash
Navy 3-1 (Wins over WestCoast Starz 14, Bay Area Wave, LA Wave)
Royal 3-0-1 (Wins over Triple Threat, Bearlax 14 Green, LA Wave, & Tie w/ BearLax 15Blue)
Silver 2-2 (Wins over West Coast Starz, Team Scream)
the heat is obnoxious - 106 at game time on Sat. Every team at the event is struggling to manage their players hydratio level and avoid heat exhaustion!
The Navy and Pacific Teams each played a solid 6 games over the weekend. Royal had the best record going 3-2-1 on the weekend, with both losses to 2014 teams (Bearlax 14Blue and WCS 2014) and a tie against a mixed age team (Mamaci Elite). Navy played as a mixed unit with some frosh and 8th graders cutting their teeth in the elite bracket. The team ended up 2-3-1, but the record does not reflect the overall success. As a club we are not use to going 5-5-2, but each team improved as the event went forward and we saw a lot of player growth on many levels. Our player of the tournament was Paige "Sunny" Soenksen - she anchored both teams in the goal and had well over 100 saves on the weekend...many right on the crease! GREAT JOB SUNNY!!!!
Sami H, Alex R, Carolina T, Sarah A, Bridgett G, Paige S, and Cat B traveled to Stanford for the inaugeral 5v5. The girls went 6-0-1 in pool play. The final game was a challenge v a merged Cardinal House Team and Bay Area Wave - the only other undefeated teams. The girls played tough, but fell 3-1 in the defacto championship game. A great day was capped off with a dip in the Hoover Tower Fountain!!

PLAYERS NEED TO BRING ALL PACIFIC FALCONS UNIFORMS
The U17 Team arrived into Richmond ready for Capital Cup! The team started out strong with a 18-2 victory over Minnesota. The team stayed hot on day 2 - beating Geronimo Elite 8-3 (Richmond, VA) & followed that with a strong 11-4 victory over Triple Threat (Bay Area, CA). On the final day the team controlled the game against Detroit winning 13-8. The event organizers gave the team 4 games and the girls took it to each team on the schedule - trailing only once all weekend!
While in Richmond the team has toured UVA, James Madison, and Univ of Richmond. We also went to see the Harry Potter Movie & watched the world cup finals Sunday before the team split up.
The team played as a split squad in the 5 pool games and then came together for a great win in the Championship. The girls played inspired lacrosse both days and outscored their competition in 11 of the 12 halves of play. The girls heading to Orlando took a big step forward - congratulations to all!

The U15 White Team dominated the competition in AZ. The girls outscored competition 54-18 over 5 games - game scores were 14-3, 10-3, 11-4, 9-4, and 10-4. The girls played well and we really came togther as a team off the field. Pacific has qualified 2 teams for Orlando (Blue & White) - we will start that planning process immediately.
Congratulations to the players and coaches - the team went 5-0 and dominated every team in their division. Devon Doheny was nominated to the all tournament team - ALL players showed a ton of class and poise by not running up the score on teams or playing selfish lacrosse. A great accomplishment for this group of players - they are the first Pacific Falcons team to win their division at Sandstorm. CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN!!!!
