Half of this U12 team had never played lacrosse until this year. They went 2-1 at the Jamboree on May 5th, losing only to Mountain Brook 13-15. They won 4 out of the last 6 games and led their age group with 196 total goals scored! Way to go, Mini Huskies!!
Trussville High School coach, Tom McCormick, reported that the The Trussville High school girls and boys both made the Lacrosse playoffs. The teams will play in the Greater Birmingham Youth Lacrosse Association (GBYLA).
The girls lacrosse team will host a first round playoff game.
“The girls are 5-7 this year,” said McCormick. “We had a rough start going 0-4, but won 4 games in a row to get into position to host a playoff game.”
McCormick said that this is the second time the teams made the payoff in GBYLA.
“We have a very young team, with only 7 upperclassmen out of 28 players,” he said. “We do have a senior on our team who signed to play lacrosse at the University of Montevallo. Another young lady is second in scoring with 44 goals and nine assist this season.”
The Trussville U12 Girls Team beat Vestavia in a nailbiter this past Saturday. Final score was 19-18. They then went on to beat Oak Mountain 18-14 on Sunday.
