In our first season of playing games (we did not play any games in spring 2020), MWHS Boys Lacrosse exceeded expectations for a brand new program. This team overcame adversity (namely getting their program started during a pandemic), they competed in every game, and made their community and families really proud of their efforts!
Led by nine senior student athletes, our varsity team managed to accomplish:
The 2021 seniors did a commendable job leading, competing, and not giving up against some very strong competition. As pioneers in this program (our youth association’s first players), they didn’t have a “template” to follow, had to find their own way and rise up to every challenge, which they handled really well. They modeled how to be flexible during the pandemic, how to bounce back and get back to work after WINS and LOSSES, and have laid the first row of our program’s foundation. Their contributions will be the motor for this program for years to come. We are going to miss them a lot, and we know that their pioneering spirit will take them each very far!
Thank you and best of luck to our graduating seniors:
Matt Funderburk, Ethan Wagner, Lukas Witczek, Dominic Musel, Cole Deters-Spader, Devon Wilson-Noethe, Owen Rostis, Nic Riemenschneider, and Bode Applegate.
