The varsity boys lacrosse team has enjoyed what has arguably been the best regular season in school history so far this year and they wanted to send this year’s senior class out in style with a win over Lebanon on Friday night. Tabbed “The Dirty Dozen” by their head coach, Troy Stehlin, this group of seniors has set the bar high and raised expectations for this program. They have bought in across the board and their leadership and togetherness have been two huge reasons why this team has enjoyed the season it has to this point. On Friday, they were rewarded with a resounding victory on Senior Night.
The Elks came out strong and took an early, 1-0 lead. The Warrior would tie the game at a goal apiece before the Elks would score the final two goals of the period to take a 3-1 lead. In the second quarter, the Elks took control of the game by outscoring the Warriors, 4-1, to take a 7-2 lead into the locker room. In the third quarter, the Elks continued with their smothering defense and blanked the Warriors, 4-0, to take an 11-2 lead into the fourth quarter. A 3-3 fourth quarter gave the Elks a 14-5 win on Senior Night and allowed them to set a new school record for wins in a regular season with their 13th.
In the opening game of the night, the JV A team also defeated the Warriors, 9-2, to wrap up a 10-5 season.
Now 13-5 overall, the Elks are back in action tomorrow night when they host their first ever state tournament game at home. In that game, they will welcome Hilliard Darby to Alumni Stadium for a 7:15 PM match-up.
