BREAKING NEWS: Mount Si High School girls’ lacrosse makes history, with their senior goalie announcing a college decision

We have some news just in from Mount Si High School’s girls’ lacrosse program.

The program has announced their first ever girls’ college commitment. Goalie Tessa Lewis has committed to NCAA Division III Southwestern University in Texas. The announcement was made via their Twitter feed this morning, with the MSLC Tweet linking to an announcement about Lewis’ decision which was posted to her club team’s website. Lewis, in addition to playing for Mount Si, plays for the Seattle Starz club team.

She becomes the first MSLC player – and second Mount Si High School girl overall – to commit to play women’s lacrosse collegiately, joining Chaija Olsson, who committed two years ago to Division II Mount Olive in North Carolina. Olsson, however, did not play high school lacrosse for the Mount Si program, making Lewis their first-ever girls’ commit. A little confusing, yes, but that’s the deal.

Lewis went 7-5 last spring for MSHS in goal, and is expected to return there this coming spring for the Wildcats.

Southwestern, incidentally, is in the same conference as another school with a MSHS grad – the University of Dallas, where men’s star Tyler Smith hails from Mount Si’s boys’ program.

Good stuff and we congratulate Tessa on this decision. She is the second Wildcat girls’ athlete in this year’s senior class to publicly announce a college decision; softball player Abby Gronewald recently signed a letter of intent to attend and play for Division I Fairfield in Connecticut.
