Despite a rocky start, the boys lacrosse team remains optimistic for the rest of their games this season.
At first, the team found it difficult to recruit new players. On top of that, the team was playing schools in higher divisions, so the idea of winning many games against large schools appeared hopeless.
Despite these weak spots, captain junior Jared Agnew said, “Chadwick lacrosse is on the rise.”
Although the lacrosse team currently has a 2-4 record, the season is still one of the best lacrosse seasons in Chadwick history.
“The season is going really well so far. After Coach Willison took over as head coach we got about 10 new players which has really made a difference in our season,” said junior Zach Goodman. “Compared to my last two years playing lacrosse at Chadwick, this is by far going to be our best season with the most talent.”
The players are most proud of their game against Joran High School. The boys lacrosse team won 15 to 0, the first shut out in the last two years.
Goodman said, “Even though the other team wasn’t the best competition, it was great to see all of us having fun with the victory.”
Similar to Goodman, Captain sophomore Jake Radeski said, “We are very proud of [our win]. We did not let them score any goals thanks to Zach [Goodman] and our defense, and we scored a Chadwick record 15 goals thanks to [junior] Kyle Ulman and our offense.”
Over the course of the season, more players have joined, bringing the team even more success.
“The team itself is very talented and everyone works together very well,” said Radeski. “We are a very young team so we believe that next season we will do even better than this year and we have a very promising future.”
