Christ Church Lacrosse

The Christ Church boys lacrosse team ended their record setting year when they lost to JL Mann on April 8 in the first round of the playoffs. This disappointing 17-8 loss does not reflect well on the otherwise great season the Cavaliers had.
In just their third season of playing, Christ Church was able to win a team record 9 games, not including three wins in a tournament, and earn a six-seed in the playoffs. The Cavaliers also traveled to Vero Beach, Florida to play Cardinal-Gibbons and St. Ed’s during spring break. Even though they lost both games, head coach Shane LeCroy said, “As a team, we learned many things and really bonded from our experience in Florida.” The Cavaliers also set many individual records this year. Will Sanders and Josh Schools tied to set the single season team record of 39 goals. Furman commit Huw Stanton finished fifth in the state and set a Christ Church team record with 110 ground balls. Mac Ivestor, a freshmen, started in goal for the Cavaliers and had a team record 8 wins. He also finished the year with a .53 save percentage and a 7.46 goal against average.
The captains of the team were seniors Robert Moser, Taylor Carsten and Josh Schools. The team now looks to move on after graduating these three seniors plus four other seniors this year. Coach LeCroy is happy with what they accomplished this year and is excited for the future of the team. “We are one of the youngest teams by playing so many freshmen… the future of team is bright.”
The Christ Church girls lacrosse finished their season on April 8 when they lost to Greenville High School 12-10 in the first round of the playoffs. The girls were led by seniors Brianna Unger who scored a team record 56 goals and Anna Ferrell who had a team leading 25 ground balls and 41 draw wins. Susannah Pazdan was the Lady Cavalier’s starting goalie. She had a .45 save percentage and a 6.65 goal against average at the end of the year.
The Lady Cavaliers finished the year with a record of 11-4. The girls will graduate 5 seniors this year and hope to continue their success in the future without them.
