Palo Alto High grad Nina Kelty and Menlo School graduate Ali Kim both were among eight girls from Northern California named first team All-Americans by US Lacrosse on Thursday.
Kelty and Kim were the only two players from the Central Coast Section so honored, while four others were from the East Bay and the final two from the Davis/Sacramento area.
Both Kelty and Kim helped their teams to successful seasons in the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League and West Bay Athletic League, respectively.
The Vikings finished 18-4 overall, falling to St. Francis in triple overtime (16-15) in the SCVAL playoff finals. The Knights finished 12-8, losing to Sacred Heart Prep in the league playoff finals after the local rivals had tied for the regular-season crown.
