Lacrosse season has finally begun and everyone is eager to see what the season will look like for our teams this year.
Both boys and girls lacrosse are very excited to have finally kicked off their season, and are getting ready for many intense games to come in the future. Third year varsity player, junior, Logan Lusk mentioned she is super pumped to play Southridge High School as well as Mountainside High School because each of those teams has “Many of our old players from before the boundary change.” Also adding in how “It’s fun to be able to see as well as play old friends and see how much they have improved.”
Junior Ben Mungai also stated how he is “Most excited to play the last game of the season” because he would be interested in seeing how much they have improved from the first game they played together as a team.
Both of the teams seem like they will do pretty well this season, senior Nicole Caster mentioned that since they are such a young and new team this season it is easy to say they won’t be as strong of a team as they have been in the past but she also stated, “However there is not a single person on our team who has not pushed themselves to better our team as a whole.” Mungai also touched on a similar topic stating their team is “On the right track to being a successful team this year, everyone is adapting and learning very quickly”, which he believes is a crucial part of being a successful winning team.
Lusk, Caster, as well as Mungai all mentioned that one thing they really enjoy about participating in the varsity lacrosse program was the “family aspect” and being able to meet new people as well as hang out with older friends that you have made while playing the sport over the years.
Everyone is very excited to see what is in store for our lacrosse team this year, and as always remember to make your way to a lacrosse game this season to cheer on your Beaverton High Teams!
