2013 Varsity Boy's Lacrosse Finishes 15-4

The Galena Grizzlies had a good year. Yes, it can be stated that simply. The team hit all the marks that a high school team playing in the Western/Pacific region of the U.S. could hope for. They travelled to three states for non-league games, won a league title, and saw five players named 1st Team All-HSLL. On top of all that, 17 quality seniors experienced success in the form of a 15-4 record in their last season in the black and gold.

The team started the 2013 campaign by venturing to California and Idaho. The first four games of the season were scheduled to see how the 2013 Grizzlies would measure up against regional opponents. The boys returned to the Truckee Meadows with a 2-2 record which included a loss to the eventual 2013 Idaho State Champions, Mountain View. That was a meaningful start as the non-league competition gave the Grizzlies a taste of what would be needed to repeat as league champions in the HSLL. As league play began, the focus was to play the best games possible regardless of the opponent or any previous results. The undefeated 2012 season and league championship was in the rear view mirror and the local teams had changed. New coaches, better players, all hungry to take a shot at Galena. For the most part, the Galena players raised their game in 2013 with exceptions being two very close games in the heart of the season versus McQueen and Reno, respectively. The Grizzlies weathered the regular season with a high powered offense that averaged just over 16 goals per game and a solid defense that only allowed an average of 5.5 goals per game.

Galena Boy's and Girl's Teams Sweep High School Lacrosse Championships


Reno, Nev. (May 7, 2013)— The Galena girls’ lacrosse team won 9 – 7 in a see-saw game against the Northwest Coyotes to clinch the 2013 Girls High School Lacrosse Championship for the second year running. A strong regular season saw the Coyotes (comprised of players from Reno and McQueen high schools) put up a good fight against a short bench from Galena High School. The Grizzly girls’ team was without a number of regular players including freshman standouts Madison Bulera and Ashley Agrella. Though a few players were missing, the Grizzlies buckled down under the leadership of coaches Alex Treadwell and Rachel Kral, and the play of top scorer Kennedy Riggs. With the loss, the Coyotes finish second in the six-team league, with Bishop Manogue placing third in their first year fielding a girls’ lacrosse team.
The varsity boys’ lacrosse contest pitted the top seeds Reno and Galena in the first-ever lacrosse night-game in Grizzly Stadium.

Galena (HSLL) @ Woodcreek (CA NCLA-E) Results

Saturday, March 2nd 2013 

For their first game of the season the Galena Boy’s Varsity team traveled to Grass Valley, CA to play a neutral site contest vs Woodcreek (CA NCLA-E). The game was played under sunny, warm conditions at Nevada Union HS. Prior to starting the game, Woodcreek (2-0) had defeated local HSLL opponent Spanish Springs 16-1, so the Grizzlies knew they were in for a good game.

Galena started the game slowly as Woodcreek scored 4 unanswered goals in the first quarter. Galena looked out of sorts in their first game of the season making mistakes that were being exploited by a disciplined Woodcreek team. After a cleansing talk between the 1st and 2nd quarter, Galena crawled back into the game with three goals in the second quarter to Woodcreek’s one to go into halftime down 3-5. From halftime on the Grizzlies played with more hustle and jam but the only goal came from Woodcreek as they added an extra goal to extend their lead to 3-6 after the 3rd quarter.
