SCOOP UPDATE – FEB 20, 2017

Girls Lacrosse Players and Parents,

Welcome to President’s Recess!  We hope that you have a relaxing time away from school and that you come back ready to learn and play…

A HUGE SHOUT-OUT
Adena Rothbard (2018) recently gave her verbal commitment to play lacrosse and attend The University of New Hampshire!  It’s huge news for Adena, who has been working hard over the last several years to earn a position with an NCAA D1 team.  Be sure to give Adena congratulations the next time you see her.

A HUGE RETURN
We also want to send love to our very own Mia Bagiu (2015), who has returned to Newport Harbor as our JV2 Assistant Coach.  In her playing days, Mia was a three year varsity player, a senior captain, an all-league first teamer, and a serious defensive force  to be reckoned with.  Thank you Mia…and welcome back!

LOOKING FORWARD
The schedule on the web site will now be your best bet for current updates, always refer to http://sailorgirlslacrosse.org/ for the latest updates.  We have proofed the information and it is currently accurate, but things do tend to change in the world of girls lacrosse–especially with Davidson out of play.  We will keep you posted  with email updates.  It’s a good habit to check the website before heading out to any game this season.

In the week we return, here is the schedule:

*  Varsity & JV @ Yorba Linda on Tuesday, 2/28
*  Varsity and JV vs. Mater Dei on Thursday, 3/2

The first JV2 game is scheduled for March 6 against Northwood.  We are still looking to build 5-7 additional games into the JV2 schedule.  Stay tuned!

SPIRIT RUN PLEDGE DRIVE
The varsity team is off and running with the fundraiser and in the first two days earned the program over $2,000!  JV & JV2 teams will be setting up pledge pages the week we get back from President’s Recess.  Be ready with 10-20 email addresses for out-of-town  family and friends.  Our Spirit Run Liaison, Brandy Richardson, will guide players through the process.

Have a great Ski Week, and LAX ON!

First Annual Alumni Classic

alumnigame_122916

The classic battle of age vs. beauty will be left unsettled, as our alumni team averaged about 19 years of age.  Ambiguous results notwithstanding, the first Newport Harbor Girls Lacrosse Alumni Classic was a great day of friends, fun, and competition!

Representing the class of 2016 were Rylie Siegfried, Hannah Sanders, and Maxine Aiello.  2015 sent Mia Bagiu, Daniella Vazquez, and Jordan Blanchfield.  Jenna Nulty rounded out the group as the sole 2014 rep and the senior stateswoman of the group.

Thank you to all the parents who volunteered to make this event possible and to the alumni who came back.  We’ll see you all next year for the Second Annual Alumni Classic!

Sailor Lacrosse Family,

Let’s give a yell for KATIE HENDRIX and SARAH FARLEY, who officially signed their commitments to play lacrosse at the next level!  Their incredible commitment and outstanding work have earned them coveted spots on collegiate teams.

KATIE will be representing NHHS in the PAC-12, as she helps build the new Arizona State University program.

2017 will be the first year that Newport Harbor fields two NCAA commits on our varsity team.  So come on out this spring to see the spectacle for yourself.

ALL-COUNTY & POST SEASON RECOGNITION 2016

ALL-COUNTY 2016
JACKIE PITTS 2016
NEWPORT HARBOR HIGH SCHOOL TOP FIFTEEN ATHLETES 2016


Sailor Nation,

The 2016 season is over, but the honors keep pouring in!  Let’s give a yell for JORDAN RAUSCH and RYLIE SIEGFRIED.  These two have earned spots on the OC All-Country First Team.  This is an honor voted on by coaches across the county, and these two have proven themselves as two of the best twelve in the land!

This is a huge honor for these athletes, and to my knowledge, it’s the first time NHHS has posted two All-County First-Teamers.

Furthermore, RYLIE has been named one of the TOP FIFTEEN ATHLETES at NHHS, a distinction for which she will be honored at a Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce Commodore Club dinner on June 2.

And, finally, RYLIE has also won the coveted Jackie Pitts award.  Only one player in the entire county earns this nationally recognized title, which goes to the player who does it all:  “This award recognizes a graduating senior in each chapter who truly honors the game of lacrosse, is invested in the development of the game in her community, is an exceptional player who continually strives to improve her game, and is an exemplary member of her team. She exemplifies the spirit of the game, on and off the field. Academically, she is an outstanding student and a valued role model in her school” (US Lacrosse).

RYLIE has not only proven herself to be a force on the field, but she has been recognized by coaches around Orange County for her incredible academic achievement, contributions to the sport of lacrosse, and her work within the community at large.  Newport Harbor and the Girls Lacrosse program is honored to have RYLIE representing us as the winner of this prestigious award!
