Grizzly boys and girls received high honors in spring season
The boys lacrosse program at Granite Bay High continues to receive honors for its successes on the field. The team is currently preparing for a major tournament set for July 17-18 at Gaelic Park Fields on Treasure Island in San Francisco. The event features 40 all-star teams from the western United States. A year ago, the Grizzlies were the only team representing a single high school at the event. Teams come from the Bay Area, a lacrosse hotbed, as well as from Southern California, Nevada, Colorado and Idaho. The 2010 spring team received high honors after a 13-3 season (10-0 in the Sacramento Valley Lacrosse Conference). Scott Pink of Granite Bay was chosen as coach of the year and David Haggerty of Granite Bay High School was named the MVP of the league. Haggerty scored 34 goals and had 18 assists for a total of 52 points during the season. He will play lacrosse at the University of Denver in the Fall. Haggerty was joined by Kent Mueller, Jeff Stanley, Adam Angula and goalie Cody Sviba received first team all-conference honors. Connor Deck was named honorable mention. The Granite Bay girls team had a spectacular turnaround season, going 13-4 and being ranked as high as 14th in the North Coast Section and 30th in the state. Lady Grizzlies Erica Postell, Katrina Reeves, Shelbi Tooley and Alexa Wolf were all-league players on that squad.
