The lacrosse team has played 10 games since the end of March and is 4-6.

They lost to Rockhurst, Lee’s Summit West, Thomas Aquinas, Blue Valley, Blue Valley West and Des Moines. They Won against Lee’s Summit, Olathe East, Shawnee Mission, and Mill Valley, but three of the losses came by two goals or less so the majority of the games are very competitive.

The championship game is slated for May 18  at University of Missouri–Kansas City, Durwood Stadium, but there are playoffs beginning the week of May 8. The top eight teams make the playoffs, but the lacrosse team is the eighth seed right know.

Scott Noernberg, lacrosse coach, said, “We need to take care of business in our next few games to try to move up in the standings.” Then the top four seeds play at UMKC the week of May 15. Scott Noernberg said, “We need to work offensively on possessing the ball.”

Mainly lacrosse is a game of keeping the ball during critical moments like possessing the ball and not being able to allow a goal under any circumstance. 

Scott Noernberg said, “This is simply having a high lacrosse IQ and making smart decisions all while executing the simple things.” He also talked about working on the team’s defense and on their slides.

Cooper Reves, senior, likes the constant flow of the game, the speed of the game, and how everybody gets to show off the ball. Brady Noernberg, senior, said, “I like all the scoring and the pace it is at.”

The coach believes that all the work that the team has done in practice is paying off during their games. Scott Noernberg said, “The best game moments are both offensively and defensively watching our guys get better each and every game.”
