Boys’ Lacrosse Rebuilds
by Jack Urquhart on Friday, June 7th, 2013
The boys’ lacrosse team ended the year with a 3-12 record in a especially talented ISL year, grabbing wins against St. Georges, Lawrence Academy, and BB&N. The boys’ record does not fully demonstrate just how competitive these contests were, as three of the team’s losses were decided by one goal. After losing many seniors last year to collegiate athletics, the team saw this season as a rebuilding year. Although down eleven seniors for next year, the team still has a bright future. Luckily, both offensive and defensive MVPs, Jack Cahill (II) and Chad Malinowski (II), are returning for next season. When asked about the upcoming season, Malinowski said, “This year we had a lot of potential but never really hit our stride. Although our record was not where we wanted it to be, a lot of younger guys really made key contributions to our team. Sean Brennan (III) and Will Fitzpatrick (IV) really solidified our defense this year and are posed to have breakout seasons next year. On offense, Morty Fearey (IV) showed a lot of potential as well.” With a lot of growing talent in the younger players, the boys’ team is hoping to make a name for themselves next year. At the team banquet this past Sunday, their Coach Simonson stressed the improvements that the team had made this year and the contributions that the senior class has made to the lacrosse program. The 11 seniors accumulated 21 points in their home finale on Dennis Field against BB&N and set a great example every day in practice for the underclassmen. Although this year’s season did not yield an outstanding record, Boys Lacrosse made its spring season very productive and set themselves up for a successful future.
