The Arizona Youth Lacrosse League has been in existence since 1996. During a season that ran Feb. 27-May 1, the Oro Valley Wolverines made the playoffs in Division II play, losing to eventual champions Catalina Foothills 11-7 at Chaparral High School.
The Wolverines are made up of high school players from Canyon Del Oro, Ironwood Ridge, Mountain View and Marana high schools.
“It was a good season,” said Oro Valley coach Tom Carr. “There were a couple of losses that were upsets. We came together in the second half of the season.”
The Wolverines have made great strides. After going 0-12 in their inaugural campaign, they went 2-8 last year, and earned a playoff berth with a 7-5 record this year. In the midst of a strong second half, the Wolverines handed Catalina Foothills its only loss of the season, 6-5.
