Many South students involved in city lacrosse

Both the boys and girls lacrosse teams have had rough years. The girls have gone 1-5 and the boys 2-9 this season.

“We’re doing better [this year] even though our record doesn’t show it,” Catherine Serwatka, senior, said.

The team is not coached through the school but through the Kansas City Metro Girls Lacrosse Association (KCMGLA).

However nine of the girls are from Olathe South.

The boys’ work with another organization, but between 20-30 of the athletes are from South. They are doing worse compared to last year.

“We lost a lot of seniors and leadership [from] last year,” Burton said.

The girls’ team has 10 seniors this year, meaning they will have a lot of space for new athletes next year.

“We have a big Senior Class this year, so they are going to need a lot of girls. We have, I think, 10 seniors graduating, so they will need all those slots filled,” Serwatka said.

“Anyone that’s looking for a spring sport and likes competing with other teams [should play],” Burton said.

Both lacrosse teams started playing in March. The girls began towards the end of the month while the boys started in the beginning.
