Lacrosse left in good hands

Kelly Williams attempts to score against Salem at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex on April 19, 2023.

Pounds of padding on, and a stick in hand, sprinting down the field the boy’s lacrosse team has had a successful season. Going 11-5, with the season at a close, they will lose some of their starting seniors; however, they have some rising players who can carry on the good team form. 

“Our team this year has set the standard for years to come, and I only see us getting better next year,” said assistant coach Thomas Locke.

Kelly Williams is currently a freshman who plays as a midfielder on the boy’s varsity lacrosse team. 

“I like the creativity that has to do with the sport. There isn’t a right way to play the sport you can just freestyle,” said Kelly.

Kelly’s creativity and explosive speed help him break through the midfield and dominate teams. His skill has also gotten him VHSL all-region, second team.

“Next year he’ll be a force to be reckoned with since he can play both offense and defense. I have high hopes for him,” said senior Ryan Devlin.
