Girl’s Lacrosse made a huge comeback this year at many High Schools across the nation. A derivative of boy’s outdoor lacrosse, still consisting of 3 midfielders, 3 attackman, 3 defensemen and 1 goalie per team on the field is also played with a bit more skill instead of muscle by these queens of the field.

Chaparral High School was one of three schools’ that reintroduced girl's lacrosse as a varsity and junior varsity sport this year along with Great Oak and Temecula Valley. Thirty-six girl's from Chaparral took up the stick for the first time and surprised most knowledgeable lacrosse fans by posting a winning 6-5 season for both the Varsity and JV teams.

What distinguished the Pumas was their ability as a team to play well on both sides of their body with their stick. "I don't know of an entire team anywhere able to play equally well on both sides and these girl's managed to do it in a few weeks", said Mark Schreiber their coach.

Chaparral will host a 2 week camp featuring morning and afternoon sessions tailored to a players needs starting June 16th. The camp is open to all 9th graders and up. More information can be found on the school web site at Click on the athletics page under camps and clinics.
