Third-ranked Palos Verdes celebrated its 11-member senior class and wrapped up its regular season Monday, posting a 22-0 win over visiting Culver City for the team’s fourth consecutive victory.
It was the first shutout of the season for the Sea Kings, who went 10-3 in the regular season while allowing only eight goals per game.
Palos Verdes was helped by winning 23 draws and spending the majority of the game on offense, but Sea Kings goalies Aubrey Fixen (3 saves) and Lily Vancans nevertheless combined to keep a clean sheet.
On senior day, 10 graduating Sea Kings scored goals among 13 different players overall who found the net. Moreover, nine different PV players recorded assists in setting up those goal scorers. Senior Kelly Hoyt (5g, 1a) and sophomore McKenzie Olsen (2g, 4a) led the scoring with six points each, and senior Abbie Merchant (3g, 1a) contributed four.
Of the 11 Palos Verdes seniors, five are heading off to play lacrosse in college at the NCAA D-I, D-II or D-III levels.
