By BROOKE BOYER- This year, the boys’ varsity and junior varsity lacrosse teams have both been persistent in their seasons. While many of the players seem to think that the season hasn’t gone quite as expected, the team has developed a strong bond over the course of the season. Now, as the season has come to an end, the seniors reflect on their season and some even prepare for collegiate-level lacrosse careers.
Many of the players felt that this season was a bit of a rough one, but the players fought through with persistence. Ultimately, the boys were able to develop a strong team bond during the season and made unforgettable friendships.
The senior players have experienced a wide range of emotions this season. “I’m sad that this will be my last season but I’m also glad because I’ve been waiting for this year for long and I can’t wait to walk across the field on senior night. The season has been rough but it is giving the young kids a look at what needs improvement for the next season, and hopefully they see what we have done wrong this year and make changes for next,” stated senior Mason McCauley.
Senior Conner Montgomery, who will be playing division two lacrosse next year at Walsh University, reflects on this season fondly. “I’m definitely gonna miss the guys next year but I’m excited to be able to represent IHS lacrosse next year at the collegiate level. We’ve had some ups and downs but we have come together to play some really great games this season. We saw much improvement from last year.”
Mikail Bajwa will additionally be continuing his lacrosse career at Florida Southern University this fall. There, he will compete in division two lacrosse, like Montgomery.
As the season is now complete, the seniors have mixed emotions about the end of the season.
