What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “I think we did great this past season! Fifteen seniors graduated last year and everyone thought we were going to be terrible.

This upcoming season will be a great chance to show everyone how great our chemistry is on and off the field.”
