Jess Liou’s 15 Saves Lead Cate Girls Past Royal; Becca Baxis Has 7 Goals in DP Rout

Cate goalie Jess Liou made 15 saves, sparking the Rams to a 12-5 girls lacrosse win at Royal and handing the Highlanders their first loss of the season.

"Jess is an unbelievable goalie, and her leadership and voice on the defensive end are often what win our games," said Cate coach Amy Venditta.

The coach lauded the defensive play in front of Liou. The defense was led by Charlotte Pecot, Eva Herman and Morgan Prinz.

"Defensively, Cate has matured immensely," she said. "The team is playing team defense, rather than individual defense, and this is a huge accomplishment."

Brie Walker paced the Cate offense with four goals, two assists and three draw controls.

"Brie Walker had an amazing game right from the first few seconds.  She pulled down the draw control and had an amazing assist to Katherine Grossman within the first 30 seconds of the game," said Venditta.

Anna Graves "showed up to play one of her best games of the season," said the coach. "She controlled the ball beautifully, made amazing decisions, and made some incredible moves."

Graves finished with six ground ball controls and two goals.

Dos Pueblos 18, Dunn 8

Becca Baxis poured in a career-best 7 goals and Jamie Sharpe had 5 to power the Chargers (9-2)

On defense, Megan Caird, Tara Van Hoorn, Adriana Perez, and Vivian Le intercepted, blocked, and won ground balls to keep the ball on the offensive side of the field.

Kiasa Salgado ran the boys 800 and took first place in 2:02.45. Andres Castro won the 400 in 52.61.

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!
