They’re no sticks in the mud

Girls youth lax is gaining ground, but there’s still a long ways to go
Megan Pope, 14, daughter of Matt and Tracy Pope, is one of 14 players on Durango’s U19 youth lacrosse team that will be heading to its first-ever Vail Shootout in early July. The tournament appearance represents the next step on a long local road for a growing but still rag-tag, girls lacrosse program.
“I’m just trying to get these girls the opportunity for lacrosse to affect their lives like it has for me because it’s such an awesome sport,” said Kelsey MacDonald, Durango Youth Lacrosse founder and Fort Lewis College women’s lacrosse head coach.
Alyssa Montoya, 17, daughter of Richard and Victoria Montoya, is looking forward to Vail in July for the fledgling Durango Lacrosse youth girls U19 team’s inaugural tournament, the Vail Shootout. “In order to play in college, you need to be seen at the Vail Shootout or some tournaments in California or on the East Coast,” coach Kelsey MacDonald said.
