2022 Boys Lacrosse Season Review
The boys lacrosse team navigated a schedule featuring five of the top 15 teams in the state and finished the season with a 6-11 record. A majority of the roster was made up of returning players who were getting their first season of extended varsity time. The team closed with four wins in its final seven matches, including a 5-4 win over rival Southport in the annual Mayor’s Cup game and a 7-6 overtime win over a North Central team that had defeated the Royals 30-3 in a tournament the previous fall.
Junior Scott Burke was named the team’s MVP. He established new program records for most goals in a game (eight) and most points in a game (12). He finished as the team’s second-leading scorer, with 38 goals. Senior Sam Cantwell and sophomore Evan Nalley shared the team’s mental attitude award.
