2022 Outlook: While we lost 5 seniors from last years team, we still return 8 varsity starters from last years 16-4 team, 4 of which were all-area players.

Our nucleus is strong with good leadership from our seniors and a nice blend of under-classmen. Overall team speed is excellent and all of our players have good lacrosse IQ.

We will approach this season as one game at a time and will need to play consistent lacrosse all season long to have a chance to repeat last years success.
