The varsity boys’ lacrosse team fought hard against the Hill Academy on March 8, finishing with a score of 6-9. The Hill Academy program is based in Ontario, Canada; they boast three different levels of teams.

“I think playing a team that was not in our conference was a good experience,” freshman and defender Dylan Kesselring said. “It helped challenge us and helped us see where our team was against a very talented team that we didn’t know much about.”

The 2019 Brine Lacrosse King of Spring Classic hosted both men and women’s games spanning from March 7 to March 10. Teams from out of state came to play at different field sites in North Carolina; Northwest played at Apex Nature Farm Park on Friday.

“I was excited to hear that we would be playing against the Hill Academy,” junior and midfielder Declan Feeley said. “I felt like we were more prepared than last year’s showing at the King of Spring (tournament.) The coaches are doing a great job mentoring and developing our team’s talent.”

The Vikings have a record of 1-1, with three games this week. The boys are away vs High Point Central on Tuesday, away vs Lake Norman on Wednesday and have their first home game of the season vs Page on Friday. The stats for the King of Spring Classic are as follows:

Goals:

Sophomore Joe Hirvonen- 2

Senior Landon Clary- 2

Senior Clayton Joyner- 1

Feeley- 1

Assists:

Hirvonen- 1

Senior Aaron Clayton- 1

“For the rest of the season, I expect hard work on and off the field,” Kesselring said. “We have a long season and we have the talent to do well. I’m very, very excited for the future of this season.”
