Boys Lacrosse Team after winning the city championship

Saturday’s 11-4 loss at Masuk saw the Stamford High Boy’s Lacrosse Team wrap up their 2017 season, which was one filled with a mixture of emotions. Coming off of their optimistic 2016 season that saw them finish with a respectable 7-11 record, the Knights failed to build off of their progress, as reflected by this season’s 4-12 finish. With this plummet, the Knights missed out on the State tournament.

Undoubtedly, the highlight of the Boy’s Lacrosse season was their retainment of the City Championship, as they squirmed past the Westhill Vikings 7-6, and went on to assert their dominance in a 13-3 beat down against the Trinity Catholic Crusaders. With the impending departure of numerous key pieces of the Knights’ squad, including seniors Scott Moreau (Attack), Nick Lucente (Attack), and Tal Niv (Midfield), such a triumph was crucial for the growth and progression of the team’s future leaders. When asked about the importance of winning the City Championship, junior Scott Krupa (Attack) said, “It was a big deal for us because we had to defend the growth we have made over the past few years.” One of the Knight’s primary goals heading into the 2018 season will be to continue to fill their trophy cabinet. In terms of improvement on the field, Junior Brendan Fahey (Defense) hopes the team can “play faster and more viciously, as well as eliminate silly mistakes.”

The absence of further success this season has left the team with no other option than to look to the future with optimism. Junior Everett Dolan (Attack) expressed such positivity, as he stated, “We hope to have a great offseason, stay in shape, and look for leadership from our upcoming seniors.” Regardless of what the stat sheets and record books reflect, it is undeniable that Stamford High Lacrosse has been growing by leaps and bounds, and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Next year’s squad, one expected to be filled with boys who have been a part of the program since their freshman year, will definitely be keen on bouncing back.
