Fruita Monument girls lacrosse team loses season opener to Aspen

The Fruita Monument High School girls lacrosse team lost its season opener to Aspen 14-7.

Friday at Canyon View Park, the Wildcats (0-1) had the game tied 6-6 in the second half before the Skiers pulled away.

“We are still adjusting to a new coach, and a lot of the girls are still learning the game,” first-year Fruita Monument coach Jamie Pietrack said. “We played a strong first half, but hit the wall in the second half.”

Senior Katie Heil led the Wildcats with four goals and Mikayla Clark added three.

Fruita Monument goalie Jenny Hicks finished with 13 saves on Aspen’s 37 total shots.
