Boys’ lax wrapping up the season
With the conclusion of the school year, the Heritage Varsity Lacrosse team has recently bested their previous season’s record of 4-11 by five wins, boasting a 9-6 record. The Eagles missed the playoffs by the smallest of margins, falling to Denver East High School 10-9 due to a goal late in the fourth quarter. The team’s final game was played against Regis Jesuit High School on Friday May 6. The team was taken down to the first seeded Raiders.
“My favorite memory is surfing with the squad in Malibu over spring break this year,” says Brian Nichols ’16, “It’s been a long grind.”
Senior Landon Baird, Keaton Komatz and Kyle Baird are looking to take their games to the next level by means of organized or club sanctioned teams.
“It’s a good feeling to go out with a successful season,” says Baird, “ we totally meant to loose some of those games to make them feel better.”
Teamwork is extremely emphasized on the team and strong bonds are formed among the players. They have participated in practice together at least four times a week for months.
“There’s an old saying about goodbyes. You hate to see us leave but you love to watch us walk away,” says Kyle Gershawn ’16.
Going forward, the Eagles will be tasked with filling a roster left with considerably less depth with the loss of 10 seniors. The team is left with a considerable amount of talent with upcoming juniors and seniors, Parker McNitt, Gunner Carlisle and Ryan Dicker and look to improve on their already impressive record.by
