RIGHT NOW I LIKE

There are several things that I like about the program currently. First, we have a solid group of knowledgeable coaches. Second, how the experienced players help our newer athletes grasp the many fundamentals of the game. Third, I am very pleased with the improvements we have seen since conditioning in the gym. Finally, the support we have from parents, guardians and our friends at Wilmington College Lacrosse.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE

Keeping the ball off the ground and running our set offense to to score.

LEAGUE FAVORITE

Mariemont, state runner-up Div. 2, remains one of the most formidable opponents in our district.
