After narrowly sneaking into the state tournament, the boys’ lacrosse team blew out Eden Prairie 9-3 on June 9, capping off an undefeated season and winning their second straight state championship. The game started off close, with the Eagles tying up the score 2-2 at the end of the first quarter. After that, it was all Red Knights, scoring seven unanswered goals, including a pair by senior midfielder Taylor Topousis, and shutting the Eagles high-powered attack down with junior goaltender Thomas Gilligan’s 16 saves, a season high. With the win in front of a crowd of 2,000 plus, BSM became the first school in state history to win consecutive boys’ lacrosse championships.
