If we are going to take the next step in our lacrosse program and try to get to the state playoffs, we need to play better competition during the regular season.”

Coach’s outlook for 2011 season:
“Players have worked hard on their own in the off-season to improve stick skills and speed/agility. We’re anxious to see how that translates onto the field. We also have some skilled ninth-graders coming into the program and it will be interesting to see the extent to which they may be able to contribute.”
