St. Margaret’s Episcopal School at it again. This Southern California team had a great season playing an explosive brand of ball.
Just a few weeks ago, St. Mararet’s faced off against Corona Del Mar in the Orange County high school boys lacrosse championship. At one point, SMES landed four goals in just 69 seconds and that put the game away. This was cool news in the local lacrosse community and was even covered locally by OCVarsity.com.
Call me crazy, but as a coach, hearing about SMES coming up big at such a clutch moment makes one wonder if they practiced it. Sure enough, the team hadn’t just practiced it, they’d already set their personal best two weeks earlier when they defeated JSerra Catholic for the Trinity League Championship by scoring four goals in 27 seconds.
Undefeated in league play, St. Margaret’s went on to win the US Lacrosse Orange County and CIF Southern Section Championships. Talk about an unforgettable season! I bet, for the rest of their lives – no matter how old they get – whenever those players see each other and reminisce on the 2013 season, they’ll do it with pride and a grin from ear to ear.
