A promising season ended in a tough lost to StA @ Armstrong Field

Lacrosse


 

 

Bears are 21-0. IAC and likely national champions. Great job by Coach Bordley, Coach Leachman and the brain trust. The growth of this team from their 1st game to the definitive victories in the IAC tournament shows the quality of the coaching and the players’ receptivity to learning. Their play on the field was as good as been seen within the White Rocks.
