Thank you for supporting our girls and program. We are excited for this upcoming season and know that with your support, we can do great things. We hope to see you all at our games and make some noise for our girls! Let's go Tritons! San Clemente High School's girls' lacrosse team is gearing up for another season of fierce competition. Coach Josh Cain, who has been at the helm of the team for 5 years, is optimistic about their chances this year. After a successful run last season, where they reached the league finals and made a CIF Championship appearance, the team is set on building upon that success and making even more strides this year. "Our goal is to build on what we accomplished last year and make a CIF Championship appearance again," Coach Cain explains. "We have a young but talented group, and their experience and maturity from last year will be invaluable to our success this season." Leading the team on the field will be a trio of standout players - Sophia Yeskulsky, Charlotte Yeskulsky, and Taylor Juncaj. The Yeskulsky sisters, who are currently juniors and committed to play at Colorado University, were the top scorers last season. Sophia, with her ability to dominate draws and score from different angles, is almost impossible to defend. Charlotte, on the other hand, stands out for her ground ball prowess and her ability to create turnovers and score off of fast breaks. Taylor Juncaj, a senior, is a force to be reckoned with on offense with her quick movements and high lacrosse IQ. While the returning players bring a lot of skill and experience to the team, Coach Cain is also excited about the new additions to the varsity team. "We have a lot of young players stepping up their game this year and with their energy and determination, they will certainly make an immediate impact on the team," he says. When it comes to leadership, Coach Cain looks for certain qualities in potential team captains. "We want our captains to be caring, courageous, and consistent. They must show care for their teammates, team, and the sport. They must also have the courage to lead by example and guide the team towards our goals. Lastly, they must show consistency in their performance and leadership on and off the field," he explains, adding that the final decision on team captains will be made close to the first game of the season.
