Boys’ lacrosse falls to 2-5 after loss to Merritt Island

The boys’ varsity lacrosse team fell to 2-5 after an 0-18 defeat versus Merritt Island High School on Tuesday. The team started its season strong with a 10-7 victory versus Melbourne High School in the season opener, but has struggled to win since then. Despite this, sophomore defenseman Walter Wilinsky remains optimistic about the future.

“I’m very excited to see where this season goes,” Wilinsky said. “We have a lot of potential, especially when we work together as a unit.”

Wilinsky credits new coaching with improving the team’s performance and chemistry.

“The recent change in coaching has been really good, he has made us work harder and get closer with our teammates,” Wilinsky said. “He has an old-school style, but he is really good at what he does.”

Sophomore Shea Ix agrees that new coaching has turned the team around.

“The new coaching has helped the team improve a lot compared to last year,” Ix said. “The team has been performing very well considering we actually are winning against schools we have never beaten before.”

The boys’ lacrosse team plays their next game against Cocoa Beach High School on Thursday.
