Lacrosse Update


Miles Pim '22

Your favorite lacrosse team has been up to some stuff this season. At the very moment of writing this article, we have a record of 6-6, but this week we have two games so that is likely to change. We opened the season with a tough loss to Ladue 10-6 whom we beat twice last year, a rude awakening to say the least. The team however picked up the intensity in practice and, after a team spring break trip down to Memphis “Memph” Tennessee, beat Republic 17-4. They beat us last year 6-5 in a devastating overtime loss in the second game of the season. This was the beginning of a winning streak. A historic 7-6 win in the programs first-ever victory against the St. John Vianney Griffins led straight into another hard-fought 6-4 win against Lindbergh. After Lindbergh, the team had a very strong win against Rockwood Summit. North Oldham came in from Kentucky to lose 14-1. We fell short to Chaminade and MICDS, but bounced back from both of those with a win against Kirkwood. The two most recent games against CBC and John Burroughs have also ended with another tally in the loss column, but we are working hard to win our last regular season games and secure a spot in the playoffs. We have Westminster, Eureka and Senior Night against Marquette to finish off the regular season. 

The team went into the season with new young players who needed to step up after the loss of 14 seniors, including multiple all state selections and an academic All-American. However, Senior goalie David Sadasivam has stayed strong in between the pipes leading our defense. We have been plagued with injuries, and Captains Jack Ramey and TJ Soriano are both out with knee injuries. Ramey was prepping all off-season and was leading the team in points as a starting attackman but suffered another knee injury. A few impressive new recruits Ryan Lavery and James Wong have stepped up on our defensive end. After another starter Gerard Grewe sprained his meniscus, freshman Deven Creeth has made waves as another defensemen. Junior Cole Joyce, Freshman Mick Murphy, and Sophomore Grant McGowan have rocked the boat as attackmen. Of course, our returning varsity players like Sam Reese, Myles Garcia, Mark Parent, and Danny Palmer have been consistent performers and leaders on the team.
