Boys lacrosse has small yet successful team

The team prepares for their game and watches their opponents TASIS warm up. The game took place on April 21 at TASIS, and the Eagles lost 4-2.

The boys lacrosse team consists of players from both seventh and eighth grades. Some boys are experienced players and others are first timers. Right now boys lacrosse is a very small sport in England. Only a handful of clubs or schools offer it. This means that the competition for the ASL team is scarce. Throughout the season, the team played three games. They lost one, won one, and tied one.

The team has progressed significantly since the start of the season. “At day one we were awful,” explained eighth grader Chris Fodor. “No one knew how to pass or shoot. The team now have all developed solid lacrosse skills.” Fodor also noticed that the team has gained a better understanding of the complex game.

One of the most exciting games of the season was the tie against TASIS on May 5. All the players felt they were able to show off their skills in the game and have it pay off. “I really enjoyed the game,” said eighth grader Eddie Gualandri. “Hopefully, next time we can get a win.” The result of this game was a 4-4 tie.

The team had many challenging games throughout the season, but tried their best at each game. To the team’s disadvantage, the eighth grade students missed a week of lacrosse for the annual trip to Normandy, France. Although they were gone the team was still strong and played their best for their next game against TASIS at LSSA’s.
