San Marcos senior KC Springer reached the 100-point milestone in the Royals 17-1 girls lacrosse victory over visiting Nordhoff on Thursday at Warkentin Stadium.

The 100th point of her career came on an unassisted goal.

The senior made a right to left split-dodge move and finished with a left-handed shot. She scored two more goals before coming over to the sideline of this game with the overmatched Rangers.

The attacker/midfielder now has 102 career points on 74 goals and 28 assists.

“It’s really nice for KC to reach that milestone,” said San Marcos coach Paul Ramsey.  “She didn’t play freshman year after breaking her leg in a pre-season tournament so her numbers come from only two and a half seasons of action.”

San Marcos was leading 8-0 just 13 minutes into the game when Paul started clearing his bench.

Midfield and attack starters cheered on their teammates from that point and the Royals reserves outplayed Nordhoff 9-1 from that point forward.  Everyone played in the game and 10 San Marcos players scored goals.  

Springer, reserve attacker Ava Andrade and sophomore Clara Stump each scored three goals, and two of them were on assists from Andrade.  

Another storyline in this game was the success of three San Marcos basketball players on their journey of becoming lacrosse players. The Royals already have varsity basketball starters Mia Martinez-Tomatis and Ellie Monson. Monson is out for the season with a concussion but still cheering hard at all games.

“Both their cheers hit a good decibel when basketball/lacrosse teammates Oceanna Bauer, Mariia Shtykova and Natasha Stapf each scored goals,” said Ramsey. “Even better, two of the goals were Bauer assisting Stapf and then Shtykova.”

San Marcos improves to 6-4, 2-1 in the Channel League.

The Royals play three games next week.  A rescheduled Santa Barbara game is home at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, an away game at Thacher on Tuesday and the Royals visit league leader Dos Pueblos on Friday
