The SBMSA Orange Champions
The SBMSA Orange Champions (pictured) are 12U girls lacrosse champs. “The Champs” defeated the Bruisers 12-9 in the final game to clinch the championship title. It was a great season for the Champs who won all but one of their games. Coaches Leslie Mabry and John Mason credit the team’s success to forming a strong teammate bond and being very coachable. The Orange Champions are (from left): Brooklyn Baber (kneeling), Tess Kelley, Deavleek Minnard, Olivia Hollister, Coach John Mason, Campbell Ross, Chloe Cokinos, Elle Mabry, Annika Steffen, Mila Bell, Elizabeth Dang, Molly Daly, Lauren Dimitry, Caroline Baber (kneeling), and Coach Leslie Mabry; not pictured: Caroline Crystal.
