Archey, who finished her junior year at Eastside Catholic with two points, 12 ground balls and nine caused turnovers, joins a Suzette Soboti-coached Redlands squad that won the 2013 SCIAC Championship advancing to the first round of the NCAA Women’s Division III Tournament.

“I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to play for such a successful and highly regarded team and coaching staff,” Archey said on the Eastside Catholic Girls Lacrosse Facebook page Saturday afternoon. “Coach Soboti has created such a collaborative and positive team culture that I felt at home right away during my visit. I immediately fell in love with the campus, and the academic programs were exactly what I was looking for.”

The Bulldogs, which finished 15-5-0 (11-1-0 in conference play) in 2013 have three Washington state products on their roster; junior midfielder Emily Dalrymple, a Glacier Peak High School graduate, junior attacker  Maggie Lehr, a Lake Washington High School graduate, and senior midfielder Claire Krueger of Seattle and graduate of The Overlake.

Last spring, Archey helped Eastside Catholic advance to the opening round of the Washington Lacrosse Girls State Tournament where the Crusaders fell to a combined Snohomish-Glacier Peak High School squad to finish the season with an 8-4-1 record.

“I am so grateful that I got my start with EC lacrosse under the guidance of coach Foreman,” Archey said.
