           “The boys lacrosse team enters 2019 coming off of many days of hard work during the off-season.

Their attitudes and talent offer a refreshing perspective on the season ahead. The team is working harder than ever to compete this year in the highly competitive Ches-Mont League with hopes of making it back to the playoffs. Under the leadership and talent of the captains and Sr. Goalie, the team is optimistic about the upcoming season.”
