The Park City Girls Lacrosse team has started the 2022 season with an 9-0 record, winning every game by more than nine goals thus far. Outscoring opponents 169 goals to 24, they have dominated all competition, earning 24th place on’s ranking of all girls lacrosse teams nationally, as of May 1.


The Miners’ Girls Lacrosse will host Olympus High School on Dozier Field on Wednesday, May 4, at 7:00 PM for their Senior Night. This is likely to be the girls’ best competition all year, as Olympus is currently 6-1 and ranked 5th of all Utah teams. Park City tops that list at 1st.


Seniors Coco Gonzalez, Nikki Bott, Kathleen Whitely, Kelly Siegal, Ella Jenson, and Samantha Riely will be celebrated on Wednesday night prior to their matchup against Olympus. Riely has committed to play D1 Girls Lacrosse at UC Davis in college after graduating from PCHS.


The Miners’ playoff run is likely to begin on May 19, at home. Park City will look to defend their 2021 Utah Division A state championship, a goal that seems easily in reach for them this year. Last year, the Miners went 4-0 in the state playoffs, outscoring all opponents 82-21. In the first two rounds, Park City outscored their opponents by a combined score of 47-2. 


On Monday, May 2, Park City took on the 2-7 Waterford Ravens at home. In 2021, an 11-seeded Waterford faced off against Park City in the Division A state championship, losing 17-11. The Miners crushed the Ravens 25-3, scoring 16 goals in the first half alone.  The Miners cruise to 9-0 before their highly-anticipated Senior Night matchup against region rival Olympus.


After Senior Night, Park City will take on four more region opponents before the season wraps. They will face Skyline, Highland, and East on the road, and will host Brighton at Dozier Field on Tuesday, May 10. 


Meanwhile, the Park City Boys Lacrosse team celebrated their own Senior Night on Wednesday, April 27. They hosted the Highland Rams, crushing them by a score of 22-1, winning their fourth straight game.


Before the blowout, seniors John Tiranno, John Trahan, Jude Trahan, Keller Hopkins, Andrew Hunt, Hunter Currie, Charley Mehney and TJ Griswold were celebrated on Dozier with their family and friends.


This past Friday, April 29, the Miners took a trip down the canyon to face off against the Brighton Bengals. Park City took care of Brighton, winning 13-5 for their fifth straight win, moving to an 8-4 record on the season. 


In their last two games, the Miners have been led by juniors Jack Ronan, Riley Mulholland, and sophomore Brendan Johnson. Ronan tallied seven goals across their last two games, along with Johnson’s five goals over the same two-game stretch. Mulholland currently leads the team in shooting percentage, scoring 57.1% of shots on goal this season, according to


Park City is 2-0 in 5A Region 6, and will face three more region opponents before the season ends. The same day the girls lacrosse squad hosts Olympus, the boys team will travel down to face them. The Miners will also host region opponents Skyline on May 6, and East on May 13. 


The 5A Boys Lacrosse state playoffs are set to begin on May 17. In 2021, Park City was the 2-seed in the Division A tournament, and made it all the way to the state championship game, where they faced off against Corner Canyon. After jumping to a 7-6 halftime lead, the Miners crumbled and lost 20-13. 


Both Miners’ Lacrosse programs will look to take home state championships, which is not a far-fetched goal. The Girls Lacrosse team  looks to keep their dynasty going, while the Boys team looks for redemption.
