WCLA Women’s Lacrosse: Latest Poll Features Colorado State Ranked #1 Followed By Georgia, Michigan A, Florida Club And UC Santa Barbara
WCLA Lacrosse: USC Women’s Lacrosse (Club) Is 8-1 And Reflects “Booming” Lacrosse Growth In Southern California And Western U.S.
Lacrosse is booming these days in sunny Southern California, and USC Club (8-1) is riding a wave of momentum right into the WCLA Division I postseason picture.
The Trojans were busy in February. After an opening-day loss to UC Santa Barbara on Jan. 26 that was the team’s first significant work together since fall ball, USC ran off eight straight wins in February and is ranked No. 13 in the first coaches poll of the season.
“After that first game, I was pretty disheartened,” junior midfielder Madison Boutilier said. “We let that game go, keeping in mind what we did wrong, what we needed to become and took the rest of the season in stride.”
This is Boutilier’s first full season with the club team. She tried out for the team her freshman and sophomore years, but scheduling conflicts forced her to focus on school and drop lacrosse. Boutilier spent a semester last year practicing with the varsity squad, but couldn’t make the time commitment to play.
This year, the timing worked out.
“I really missed winning,” she said. “I really missed going out and defeating another team with people you love to play with.”
The eight wins match the most the program has ever won in a single season — with two months left to play in the regular season.
“I’m ready to make USC Club lacrosse history with my team, and I think this is the year that we’re going to do that,” Trojans fifth-year goalie Madison Aguirre said. “We decided in the summer that we were going to be a playoff team.”
USC typically frontloads its schedule to work around the school’s spring break. It works out great when the team is doing well, but Aguirre said it has been deflating in past years when the team has nearly played itself out of playoff contention by March 1.
The Trojans were 6-5 in February last season and finished 7-8. Aguirre said last year’s team wasn’t ready to even consider a run at nationals.
