Falcon Trio Make Regional All-Star Team

Three varsity Falcons were recently selected for the U.S. Lacrosse Association regional schoolgirl team, part of the prestigious Womens Division National Tournament (WDNT) program. After an intense all-day tryout against other top 9th through 11th grade players from around Southern California, junior Tori Cameron and sophomore Becky Trees were chosen for the main team and sophomore Amanda Krieger as an alternate. The So Cal squad (and 47 other regional teams) traveled to Lehigh University in Pennsylvania over Memorial Day weekend for the annual WDNT high school tournament, staged since 1933.

LCC Upsets Poway for San Diego CIF Crown (May 26th)
For those of you who don't already know, No. 2 La Costa Canyon avenged their surprise loss to Poway in last year's CIF final with a upset victory over the No. 2 Titans in this year's San Diego championship game over Memorial Day weekend. The final was 9-7 in favor the Encinitas school, with Sally Coassin scoring three times for the Mavs and Brandi Jones four goals for the Titans. Overshadowing the final was the fact that five of the county's best players -- four from Poway and one from LCC -- were missing in action, playing at the WNDT tournament in Pennsylvania rather than the San Diego section final because both events fell on the same date.

Falcons Season Ends At La Jolla (May 22th)
Fifth-ranked Torrey Pines went into their CIF quarterfinal game at fourth-ranked La Jolla hoping for an upset, but came away on the short end of a 14-5 score that put an abrupt end to Falcons season. Sophomore mid Becky Trees -- who lead the Falcons in scoring this season -- tallied twice for Torrey. But that wasn't enough to offset a potent Viking offense lead by all-stars Stefi Kalkstein and Taryn Olson, who combined for six of the La Jolla goals.

JV Ends Season Undefeated (May 11th)
The JV Falcons finished the 2007 season undefeated with a hard-fought 9-9 tie against archrival La Costa Canyon. Down two goals with less than five minutes to play -- and their perfect season on the line -- the Torrey girls mustered an emotional rally to stun the home team. Hoping to achieve at least a tie for the North County Conference, the Mavericks threw everything they had at the favored Falcons in a brutal game that saw injuries and yellow cards on both sides. The Falcons played much of the game with one or zero subs against an LCC team with 24 girls on the active roster twice as many as Torrey. Keely O'Brien scored four goals for Torrey, while Natalie Moffett and Kendra Bills chipped in two apiece, and Shelby Rothman one. Assists from Shelby (3), Keely, Dorian O'Leary and Stephanie Cowles. Siboney Montoya had 8 saves in goal. 

Varsity finished their season with a respectable 11-7 record. In their final regular season game, the fifth-ranked Falcons trailed La Costa Canyon by six at the half and ultimately fell 15-6 to the second-ranked Mavericks. Goals by Tori Cameron (3), Becky Trees (2) and Mara Harry (1). 

Wolverines Edge Falcons (May 2nd)
Westview staged a dramatic second-half comeback last night to edge Torrey Pines 11-10 in a Coastal North league game at Wolverine Stadium. The Falcons flew out to a two-goal halftime lead and seemed to be cruising to their second victory over the Wolverines in six days. But they couldn't hold it, as the host team rallied in front of a boisterous Senior Night crowd. Sofia Lama had four goals and Tori Cameron three in the losing effort. Also scoring for the Falcons were Becky Trees (2) and Mara Harry.

The Falcons JV also wrestled with the Wolverines before emerging with a hard-earned 10-8 victory that extended their win streak to 20 games. In a contest that waged back and forth, Westview jumped out to an early two-goal advantage before Torrey rallied to take the lead at half. The Wolverines went ahead again early in the second half before goals by Mary Beth Shrader and Kendra Bills finally sealed the deal for the Falcons. Mary Beth finished with four goals, Kendra two. Also scoring for the Falcons were Keely O'Brien (2), Shelby Rothman and Stephanie Cowles. Assists from Keely, Shelby, Natalie Moffett and Chelsea Yogerst. 

Torrey Splits Last Home Stand (April 27-28)

No. 3 ranked La Costa Canyon breezed into Falcon Stadium with the storm yesterday afternoon and left with a decisive 13-2 victory over the No. 5 ranked Falcons. Sofia Lama and Becky Trees scored for the home team, but it wasn't enough to offset a Maverick attack that ran up a 7-2 halftime lead and outscored Torrey six-nothing in the second half. Tara Arolla and Amanda Schutte had three goals apiece for LCC. 

JV Falcons Win Battle of the Undefeated (April 20th)
The last two undefeated junior varsity teams left in San Diego County -- Torrey Pines and LCC -- squared off before the varsity contest, the Falcons emerging with a hard-earned 8-5 victory over their archrivals from up the coast. The Mavs scored first and dominated the early action, but Torrey responded with goals by Natalie Moffett, Shelby Rothman and Mary Beth Shrader (off a Kendra Bills assist) to grab the lead. Natalie scooped up a loose ball in front of the LCC goal for another score and Sheridan Edwards tallied (off a pass from Shelby R) for a 5-2 intermission lead. The Falcons extended their lead to 8-3 on second half goals by Mary Beth, Natalie and freshman Chelsea Yogerst. Torrey keeper Siboney Montoya and the defense (Biancu Liu, Arden Madsen and Anna Esquibel) were also up to the challenge, holding the Mavs JV to their lowest points total of the season.

Falcons Nearly Knock Off No. 1 Poway (April 2)
Torrey Pines nearly pulled off the upset of the season on Monday night before losing 10-9 to number-one ranked Poway. Down by several goals at halftime and seemingly out of the game, the Falcons staged an incredible second half comeback that saw them twice pull within one goal before the Titans were able to run out the clock. Poway's speed and pinpoint passing (especially on the fast break) proved the difference in the game. Becky Trees and Tori Cameron scored three goals each for Torrey, while Sofia Lama chipped in two and Stephanie Doyle one. Keeper Jenny Franks and the Falcon defense also had a great game, holding Poway to their lowest points total of the season. (Check out the "News & Links" page for the Westside Lax report on the Torrey-Poway game)

Over on the JV side, the Falcons remained undefeated with a 12-8 win over Poway's junior varisty "A" team. Coming off their win at the Surf, Sun & Stix tourney on Saturday, the Torrey girls raced to a 9-2 halftime lead before the fatigue of playing seven games in three days finally caught up with them. Goals by Mary Beth Shrader (3), Natalie Moffit (3), Keely O'Brien (2), Sheridan Edwards (2), Stephanie Cowles and Kendra Bills. Natalie also had four assists. 

JV Falcons Take Surf, Sun & Stix Crown (March 31)
The Torrey Pines JV beat Orange County powerhouse Foothill 14-4 on Saturday to take the championship of the 2007 Surf, Sun & Stix Invitational Tournament at Westview High School. Playing six games in ten hours -- sometimes without a single sub -- the Falcons relied on a combination of skill and incredible stamina to capture San Diego's only JV lacrosse tourney. 

Torrey breezed through pool play with easy wins over Patrick Henry (15-1), Corona Del Mar (16-2) and La Jolla (12-1), before beating a scrappy Bishop's team 11-3 in the quaterfinals. Exhausted and reduced to one substitute, the Falcons quickly fell behind host team Westview in the semi-final. Down 6-3 at halftime and seemingly on their way to defeat, the girls held the Wolverines scoreless in the second half and punched in three goals of their own to tie the game. Westview scored two quick goals in overtime and once again it looked like the Falcons were doomed. But their stamina and determination kicked in as Torrey scored five straight goals en route to an 11-8 win and a date with Foothill in the championship game.

We're still checking, but we believe this is the first time that Torrey has won the JV portion of the Surf, Sun & Stix. The varsity captured the title in 2005.
