The honors keep piling up for the record-setting Aspen High School girls lacrosse team.

The Skiers won the Mountain League championship this season for the first time in program history. They finished with a program best 12-4 overall record and were awarded a home playoff game.

The Aspen girls lost to powerhouse Mullen in the playoffs for girls lacrosse, which features only one classification in Colorado. All girls lacrosse teams compete in the same division.

Postseason honors for the Skiers were announced this week with the release of the All-Mountain League first and second teams.

Scorer supreme Shannon Turbidy, Aspen’ s career scoring leader, was voted to the all-league first team again this year in balloting by the conference coaches.

Turbidy, a senior, led the Skiers with 70 points this year, including 54 goals. She was all-league first team last season as well.

Turbidy also was voted to the all-state team this year as selected by coaches statewide.

Aspen teammate Emily Bonds, a senior captain for the Skiers, also was voted all-league first team this season.

And Aspen goalie Hannah Clauss, a sophmore, was named to the conference’s all-star first team.

Clauss posted a staggering 119 saves this season. She and the AHS defense had two shutouts.

Three Skiers were voted to the all-league second team this season.

They included seniors Libby Dowley and Ashley Henschel and freshman Lizzie Ecclestone.

Dowley potted 16 goals for the Aspen girls this season.

In the girls lax playoffs, Air Academy High School won the state championship earlier this week with an 11-10 victory over Cherry Creek.
