Boys' Lacrosse Shows Significant Progress vs. Marin Academy
The BLAX team took the field on April 27 against a strong Marin Academy side and showed toughness, resolve, and some significant improvement in spite of a 13-7 loss. Regardless of the final 13-7 score, Branson was competitive; with Tri Captain Kenon Graham scoring 4, Zach Olrich adding one while getting 7 shots on goal, and goals added by Tucker Wells and Alex Getty. Nathan Kwei had a good ratio of faceoff wins. Defensively, the long poles, including LSM Oliver Koehne made it tough on MA, with Will Schuler and tri-captains Lawrence Bancroft and Stone Shepard all showing strength.
In only their third game of the season, this team is gaining stamina and confidence, which bodes well for on the field success in their upcoming games. It was great to see the boys on Tom Ryan Field with fans to cheer them on. Go BLAX!
