Hali Sibilia said that while she also plays field hockey, girls lacrosse is her favorite sport. The senior was one of the top lacrosse players in the state and a team leader for the Cherry Creek Bruins, who finished second in state for the third time in the past three years.
“I really like lacrosse,” the Bruins senior said in an interview near the end of the season. “I like the speed of the sport and I love our team. The team is like family which makes it even more fun.”
She has been named the Colorado Community Media South Metro Girls Lacrosse Player of the Year, and while she wasn't the team's leading scorer, she led the team in the total number of goals and assists. In 19 games she scored 50 goals and was the team leader with 70 assists. She took 94 shots on goal during the season.
Sibilia also was the Bruins player who took the most draws. The draw is how the game starts and how the game moves forward after a goal. The ball is placed firmly in the nets of the sticks of two players. On the whistle the goal is to win control of the ball. Sibilia took 230 draws and won control of the ball 131 times.
She helped the Bruins finish the year with an 18-1 record which included taking runner-up honors at state.
Sibilia plans to continue playing lacrosse, as in the fall she will travel to Washington, D.C. to join the American University team. She said she is looking forward to playing college lacrosse.
