CdM boys' lacrosse continues to shine

Corona del Mar High senior attacker Jack Ortlieb was one of the top 50 high school boys' lacrosse players on the West Coast that played in the Adrenaline All-American Game at Orange Coast College on Saturday.

Ortlieb, who's bound for Holy Cross, scored two goals and assisted on two goals, helping the South defeat the North, 20-12.

"Saturday's game went really well," said Ortlieb, who played in his third straight game since injuring his hamstring on April 20. "I played half the game."

Ortlieb finished the season strong. He came back and led CdM (18-3) to the U.S. Lacrosse Southern Section South Division final against St. Margaret's on May 8.

Ortlieb produced a goal in the Sea Kings' 12-7 loss to St. Margaret's at Mission Viejo High.

Ortlieb finished the season with 59 goals and 21 assists and earned first-team All-Orange County honors.

CdM's Mix earns All-American lacrosse honors

Corona del Mar High senior attacker Casey Mix earned U.S. Lacrosse All-American honors from the Orange County chapter after helping the boys' lacrosse team to the U.S. Lacrosse Southern Section South Division final.

Mix also received first-team All-Orange County laurels, along with two teammates, senior attacker Jack Ortlieb and senior midfielder Brett Nelson.

CdM sophomore defender Hugh Crance and sophomore goalie Hoyt Crance made second-team all-county.

Nelson also earned U.S. Lacrosse Academic All-American honors with his 4.15 grade-point average.

"Postseason accolades are always nice for the kids and the program," CdM Coach G.W. Mix said in a press release. "The All-County and All-American balloting is particularly rewarding because the votes come from the other coaches in the county. Our kids have been recognized as top competitors by those against whom we compete. That always means a little bit more."

Casey Mix, who is G.W.'s son, produced 60 goals and 43 assists for CdM (18-3). He is bound for UC Santa Barbara.

Ortlieb finished with 59 goals and 21 assists. He will join his brother, Michael, at Holy Cross.

Nelson had 27 goals and seven assists.

The Crance brothers played big roles in CdM's defense.

Hoyt made 216 saves and finished with a .654 save percentage. He allowed 5.42 goals per game.

Hugh has started at defense for the second straight season.
