YC native competes in lacrosse nationals

Yuba City's Krystalin Respicio traveled to the USA Youth Lacrosse Nationals last month Frederica, Delaware as a member of the 14-and-under girls club team.

Respicio's squad placed 25th out of 32 teams from around the country.

Fifteen days later, Respicio made a return trip to Frederica, Delaware, with the American Select Nike California West team. Respicio was one of two goalkeepers selected from California to be part of the team and compete against regions all over the U.S.

Respicio's squad fell short of the championship bracket.

Respicio was also a first-round goalie pick for the 2021 Under Armor, All America, Western Region Command team representing Alaska, Hawaii, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming. She was the only class of 2025 female goalie that was accepted to both the Nike American Select and Under Armor All-America teams this year for the west.

Respicio started her lacrosse career at 9 years old when she was in fourth grade with Yuba Sutter Youth Boys Lacrosse. At the time there were four girls and 12 boys on the team. Respicio played primarily midfield but occasionally played the face-off position, according to a team news release.
