Foothill High School, winners of six of the last eight US Lacrosse Southern Section championships, finishes their season ranked No. 1 in the West by the the Nike/US Lacrosse West Boys’ Region Report. The Under Armour/Inside Lacrosse Rankings places Foothill at No. 3 in the West behind Regis Jesuit (CO) and Cherry Creek (CO). The Knights also added a spot one the studentsports.com Fab 50 to their list of accolades. The Knights, who finished the season with a 21-1 record while playing a scheduled that was ranked as the most difficult in the US Lacrosse Southern Section, are the top ranked team from California in all three polls.
Showing the increasing competitiveness of Orange County lacrosse, the Knights are one of four local teams to make the Top 10 in the West list in 2014. JSerra, Corona Del Mar, and St, Margaret’s all appeared in the Top 10 during earlier parts of the season. However, as the season closes only Foothill remains. Congratulations to coach Jon Fox and the Knights!
