Although their season is no longer perfect following a loss to Sacred Heart last week, the boys’ varsity lacrosse team has proven to be a real threat this season.

The team is 6-1 to date, and is hoping to continue their three game win streak after learning from their 8-12 loss to Sacred Heart.

“We weren’t as well prepared for [Sacred Heart], I think we came out a little too cocky, but after losing so soon [in the season], it really opened our eyes and we won the next three games which were all tough,” said senior Corey Dunne.

Last week the team beat Foothill 15-3 and MCAL rival Marin Catholic.  They also beat the East Bay powerhouse San Ramon Valley 9-8, who they faced on their road to a NCS championship last year.

Tomorrow the team is traveling to Danville to take on Monte Vista, who they beat in last year’s NCS semi-finals.

While the team is riding a win streak into tomorrow’s game, sophomores Auz Zadoff and Matt Therriot are unable to play.  Zadoff, who saw success facing off earlier this season, is set to return in the coming weeks, and Therriot will return in early April as well.

Senior captain Patrick Tracy said that while the team is different than last years championship squad, they are returning with the same competitive mentality and are aiming to achieve the same goals.
