Despite a rough inaugural season for the fledgling Mission Bay High School (MBHS) lacrosse program, two members of the girls’ team, Kylie Kroeger and Ari Linley, earned a spot in the CIF Lacrosse All-Star Game on Saturday, June 14 at Westview High School.

Kroeger also received Second Team All-City-League honors. The freshman/sopho-more game will be at 9:30 a.m., while the junior/senior game is slated for 11 a.m.

Kroeger, a freshman, led the Bucs in scoring this year with 16 goals. Linley, a junior, finished second on the team in scoring with 12 goals.

“This season was a character-building experience,” said MBHS lacrosse booster Missy Kroeger. “Most of the girls had never even picked up a stick before, so we are very thrilled to have two players in the All-Star Game.”

Mission Bay’s Lacrosse program is not an officially sanctioned CIF sport and depends on its booster program to raise funds for uniforms and equipment. The girls’ team is coached by University of San Diego graduate student Kelly Fromm. There are currently two varsity teams for the boys and girls, but according to Missy Kroeger, there is a three-year plan to include junior varsity teams through a “feeder” program at Pacific Beach Middle School to introduce lacrosse to students before they enter high school.
