It’s finally the time of the year where the spring sports season is upon us. There’s a lot of buzz around Cathedral Prep about this lacrosse season. There have been some high expectations for them coming into this season. It’s become very known that they wanted to challenge themselves this year in the regular season so they will be prepared come playoff time. There is also no denying that they have a very hard schedule this season.
The team didn’t really get off on the right foot this season as they started this season 0-4. On Monday, they were set to play their second region game of the season and were determined to start turning their season around. The whole lacrosse team knew that they needed to show that they are still the team to beat in their region. That’s exactly what they ended up doing. It was a nail biter as they ended up outlasting Fairview 12-9. One of the team leaders, Albert Caldwell, stated, “I think that this is a turnaround for our team. This win was much needed, and I think it gave us a lot of confidence to hopefully go forth and win the rest of our games this season. With our overall energy and enthusiasm, there’s a good chance that we can take our talents to states. I’ve said it once, and I will reiterate again: we will win states, Cathedral Prep. You have my word.”
John Paul Stark absolutely took over the game and helped lead the team to victory. He finished with half of the team’s goals (6) and made sure there was no way they would lose. This may be a big step forward in the lacrosse team’s season, and hopefully they can start putting together a little win streak.
