Adams State Tops No. Colorado in First-Ever Game

GREELEY, Colo.- Led by a standout effort by freshman goalie Dakota Hunter (Denver, Colo.), the new men's Adams State College lacrosse team claimed victory in their first ever game, defeating the University of Northern Colorado's Club Team by a 14-4 margin in exhibition action on Saturday afternoon.

Hunter, a product of Ponderosa High School, allowed just four goals and did a great job of clearing according to Grizzly assistant coach and defensive coordinator John McCreery.

McCreery also noted that Peter Santamaria (Orem, Utah) and Anthony Willner (Littleton, Colo.) helped the Grizzlies dominate the face off game and that four transfers in long stick midfielder Chris Ruffin (Virginia Beach, Va.), Santamaria, midfielder Chanson Miller (American Fork, Utah) and freshman defender Jordan Stillwagon contributed significantly to the win.

The Grizzlies will play again next Sunday (Feb. 20) in Fort Collins against the Colorado State University club team and will then begin NCAA Division II and Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association play on Feb. 24 at Dominican University of California in San Rafael, Calif.
