Cate Girls Lacrosse Fights Off Dos Pueblos; Chargers Going to Playoffs

Dos Pueblos gave powerful Cate a tough battle before falling 16-8 in a girls lacrosse match.

"Dos Pueblos proved to be a team of speedy, athletic players," said Cate coach Amy Venditta. "We struggled to defend the fast break, but managed to make some great passes, transitions, and assists on the offensive end. We figured out how to double on the crease and prevent further crease rolls from happening."

Brie Walker scored six goals and had two assists to lead the Rams. Sam Hill added three goals, three assists, six ground balls and three draw controls, and Katherine Grossman tallied four goals.

Dos Pueblos got three goals from Jamie Sharpe and two apiece from Becca Baxis and Mika Henrickson.

On defense, Chloe Wells, Serina Applebaum, and Megan Caird performed their best against the strong attack of Cate, said DP coach Sam Limkeman.

"Our girls played tough," Limkeman said.

It was only the third for DP, which ends the regular season at 10-3. Limkeman said the Chargers are among the top 24 teams in the section and are going to the playoffs. The playoff pairings will be announced on May 1.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
