The West Coast Starz Girls 2017 squad, featuring at least eight players from Orange County, went 3-0 at the 2016 Fall Lax For The Cure event in Moorestown, New Jersey, last weekend.
Adapting to the much colder weather — and sporting new warm-up jackets for the occasion — the California girls swept three East Coast teams by wide margins. WCS 2017 beat Lady ROC 2017 (upstate New York) 9-3, Eagle Stix 2017-18 (Atlanta) 10-2 and Florida Xtreme Prime 11-2.
The showcase-style event didn’t have a championship game, but it gave the West Coast team an opportunity to see how it stacked up against East Coast competition while playing in front of more than 200 college coaches.
The Fall Lax For The Cure event raised more than $56,000 to help in the fight against breast cancer.
