I spent a couple of hours today at the Women’s Division Intercollegiate Associates (WDIA) national lacrosse championship at Westworld in Scottsdale. Here is one of my photos of the semifinal game in which U.C. Santa Barbara beat Florida 9-8 in overtime. In the championship game, Virginia Tech beat Colorado 17-9.
The future of Arizona girls lacrosse was on display at halftime of the championship game. There were two games between girls in Jessica Livingston’s Desert Stix girls lacrosse program. Some of the girls were as young as kindergarten. Perhaps some of the Desert Stix girls will be playing in college national championship games in 2020 and beyond. Here is a photo of one of the younger Desert Stix players. For more information about the Desert Stix program for girls K-9, go to azgla.com. — Dan Barr
