Lacrosse Approaches Playoffs

As the school year comes to a close, so do the spring sports seasons. One of these sports is lacrosse. Coming off of a canceled season last year, the team was looking to make a big impact this season. During their last full season, the lacrosse team had barely managed to get three wins and only one playoff game, so this season meant a lot. In a tough conference, the Eagles finished in second, only losing to Catholic in the second game of the season. This has set the Eagles up very well for the playoffs.

The regular season is close to ending and the team has a 14-5 record with only one game left to play. They will do that on Tuesday May 4 against non-conference Douglas. This should be a very exciting end to the season as Douglas is ranked 10th in the state and LCA is ranked 11th as of now. The bracket has officially come out for the Eagles as their first playoff game will be Saturday against E-Town who they beat the first game of the season. Both teams have improved very much since the first game. Something that will burden the team for the rest of the season is that the Eagles best midfielder Andrew Pulliam, 11, broke his arm during the Senior Night game against NKY Bulldogs. Jordan Moseley, 12, remains optimistic. “He was a very crucial part of our offense, but we will learn to win without him.” Pulliam has 36 goals on the season, along with Jacob Dixon and Jordan Moseley who lead the team with 50. Head Coach McCoun said, “It’s hard to lose a player like him but the team is ready and has proven they can work through hardships.”  Corwin Bishop, 9, who plays on the team is excited about what comes next. He said, “I think we can go very far if we come out and play our a game. Anything is possible when the team plays as one.” This playoff run is going to be very exciting to watch.
