Defending state champions return

A year ago, the Olympus High girls lacrosse team defied the lacrosse world’s expectations denying perennial power Park City, and taking the state championship to Holladay. 

Head coach Zana Spratling and her squad return off a 16-2 year where their only losses came against 6A runner-up Skyridge in preseason and Park City in region play. That loss to the Miners would cost the Titans a region title, but Olympus avenged that defeat with a dramatic 10-9 victory over Park City in the state championship game at Zions Bank Stadium in Herriman. 

Olympus returns most of its title-winning group from a year ago including offensive threats like junior Hazel Baker (57 goals, 20 assists), senior Eva Thorn (50 goals, 21 assists), junior Hannah Nelson (48 goals, 16 assists) and sophomore Sarah Anne (34 goals, 22 assists). They also return senior goalie Hope Ward. 

The Titans start the season on the road March 6 at Herriman before their home opener on March 14 against Corner Canyon. Non-region play features enticing matchups against 6A finalists from last year Skyridge and 6A state champs Mountain Ridge. Region play starts April 28 at East and ends with senior night May 12 against Highland.
