As the springtime rolls around again, the boys’ lacrosse team prepares for another successful year. Lead by captains Shay Kinney, Seamus Foley, Jack Budniewski, Tucker Turritin, and Jack Vanoverbeke, there is no doubt of having another dominant season.

During the off-season months, the team practiced and got ready to start a new season. They also flew east to Maryland to practice as a team and bond as teammates. “We just got back from Maryland on our spring trip, It was a grind, but we definitely benefited as both a team and individually,” captain Jack Vanoverbeke said.

As the countdown to the season decreases, the players are ecstatic about returning to the turf for another season. “ We are excited to get the season underway, we just need the student sections to be filled because our games are a really good time and the crowd fuels our game,“ Captain Jack Vanoverbeke said.

You just have to praise the lode

The boys are starting the season with a fresh, young team. This year, there are more underclassmen than ever before. There are only 4 seniors on the 2019 roster including Shay Kinney, Tucker Turnin, Nick Carpenter, and Michael Lothenbach. The majority of the students on the team include a mix of juniors and sophomores, making up a young talented squad.

If there is one thing this team can’t play without is their beloved Lotus flower fountain. Junior Jack Budniewski made the purchase at a local Five Below store. The fountain is held inside the locker room where the team gets ready for their games. “You just have to praise the lode,” captain Jack VanOverbeke.
