Lacrosse coaches were A.J. Juliani and Matt Van Kirk.
“The team had great leadership by its 8th graders, and particularly the captains,” said Juliani. “After claiming a share of the league title last year, the team came into the season with the goal to go undefeated.
“We scheduled some tough non-league opponents like Penn Charter, Malvern Prep, Germantown Academy and the Shipley School so the boys had to come ready to play every game. Our league is tough with Horsham, Upper Dublin, Abington and PW but, this group worked harder than any I’ve ever coached.
“They are good friends off the field, and play like brothers on the field. We had a great run and tons of support from the parents and community.”
