Spring is in the air (even if not in the sky yet), which means the arrival of spring sports competition. All of our teams charged into the breach with enthusiasm this week. Of particular note was the boys' varsity lacrosse team's 7–6 win over 6A giant Lake Oswego on Tuesday! Co-captain Henry M. '17 gave us all the highlights:
"Vernon C. '19, Abe H. '19, Charlie N. '17, Colby B. '18, and John F. '20 all had their first varsity starts . . . we won in a nail-biter. Vernon had his first varsity goal, and Aidan W. '18 had a big GB [Ground Ball]. Alex S. '19 had three goals—and Jack S. '18 had a ton of saves."
Athletic Director and team coach Dennis Sullivan had high praise for the squad. "We were excited to get a win before Winterim," he shared. "We don't get to work together for the next 20 days, so each member of the team has to push himself to stay in shape and keep his skills sharp, so we are ready for April."
Make sure to get out and support all of our hardworking spring sports teams, including: girls' and boys' tennis, track and field, girls' and boys' lacrosse, fencing, and girls' and boys' golf!
