The seniors on the Pueblo West girls lacrosse team have built a legacy for Steel City lacrosse

In the city of Pueblo there's only one girls high school lacrosse team, so the players come from different schools to play for Pueblo West, "In the past coming from different schools, I know some girls still had that little rivalry they didn't play so good. Last year everybody seem to be on the same sheet of music," says Pueblo West girls lacrosse coach, Manuel Torres.

Last year they finally heard some sweet music as they had their first winning season, "Our freshman year we probably went three and ten," says Pueblo South senior, Paloma Cura. "Every win that's a building block going forward," says Torres. When it comes to building blocks the senior class, although they didn't get to play this season, has left a legacy for girls lacrosse in the Steel City, "Not many people play and it's different because people don't really know what it is. Oh you play lacrosse, cool, what was it like? If have to explain the rush of everything" says Pueblo East senior, Chloe DeHerrera. Cura added, "Toward the end of these past couple of years we really started to create a foundation with our team."
