On Wednesday, March 6, the men’s lacrosse season kicked off with an early road test against the Jordan High School Falcons. The Jags fell in a hard-fought 14-10 game, but have much more lacrosse to play. Senior captains Tommy Holt and Joseph Kelly have high hopes for the rest of the season.
“Our team looks good this year. We graduated a large senior class last year, but developed the underclassmen to mesh with the veterans so we’ll be able to win a lot of games”, Kelly states.
Going into his last year of high school lacrosse, Kelly hopes to win Goalie of The Year for a back-to-back season, but more importantly, he’s focused on being a good captain and setting an example for his younger teammates.
Holt also expressed thoughts about the underclassmen.
“The team will be good in the future with young talent like Mason Cox and the Osborne brothers, Nick and Jonathan,” said Holt.
Kelly and Holt both professed the big goals for this year’s team, which include beating rivals Chapel Hill and East, winning the conference championship and making a deep run in the state playoffs.
On March 11, the Jags hosted Cedar Ridge for their home opener. Led by Mason Cox, the Jaguars won in an easy 16-6 effort.
