HERRIMAN -- No. 1 Bear River High girls lacrosse jumped to a 5-0 lead in the first 5:03 of the game to run away from region foe and No. 2 Mountain Crest (14-4) and repeat as state champions with a 19-7 victory in the 4A final Thursday at Zions Bank Stadium.

Makenzie Mickelsen led Bear River (17-1) with five goals, all of which came in a first half that saw the Bears take a 14-3 lead into the break. Marley Kierstead added three scores, bringing her season goal total to 75.

The second-straight 4A championship caps an incredible two-season run that saw Bear River post a combined 36-1 record.

LeCroix led with four assists. Lorimer and Wilkerson each tallied two assists and Shaylee McKee added one. Saydee Pebley and Hazlee Reeder combined for the win in goal.
