This week’s West Region notebook features two more champions making their mark while the playoffs start to heat up on Colorado and California.
The next two champions of 2019 took home titles last week.
Notre Dame Prep (Ariz.) won its third-straight title with an 8-7 win over Brophy Prep (Ariz.). The Saints were down by two in the fourth quarter, but Matthew Hegardt scored two goals, including the game winner. Jake Smith scored five goals in the victory.
In the Division II final, Desert Mountain (Ariz.) defeated Corona Del Sol (Ariz.) 13-12.
Palos Verdes (Calif.) advanced to its ninth-consecutive LA Championship game with a 9-3 win over Harvard-Westlake (Calif.). The Sea Kings moved on to face Loyola-Los Angeles (Calif.) in the championship game, the fourth-straight year the teams have met in the title game.
Palos Verdes has won five-straight games and won the first meeting with the Cubs 15-8.
Loyola-Los Angeles reached the final with a 14-7 win over Oaks Christian (Calif.). The Cubs have won two straight since they dropped three-straight games in mid-April. Their losses were road games against Palos Verdes, Garden City (N.Y.) and Fordham Prep (N.Y.).

You Can Make a Difference
When I founded LaxRecords.com, I could have made it into a for-profit company, but I wanted to create something different - there's plenty of recruiting coverage available. I've worked hard over the last four years to keep all content free and open to everyone. My promise to you is that I will never charge for access to the content on LaxRecords.com.
I believe LaxRecords.com is something special. It is like a library or Wikipedia. A place to discover the history of lacrosse. To my knowledge, I am the only person doing this work in lacrosse.
If everyone reading this donated, my fundraiser work would be done within an hour. But not everyone can or will donate. And that's fine.
This year, please consider making a donation of $5, $20, $50 or whatever you can to protect and sustain LaxRecords.com. Can't afford that amount? How about $2 per month? I created a way to make a monthly, recurring donation. If you donate $2 per month, that's $24 per year. Added up over many of you, that makes a huge difference and helps continue improvements.
