On Friday, April 18th, the SCHSL release the seedings for the 2018 men’s lacrosse postseason. After finishing the season 4-9, the Cavs did not have the season they were initially hoping for, but there are lots of positives to take away. The team started out with only one returning senior and a handful of returning starters. Many of the team’s problems came from lacking experience and confidence. The defence tended to play conservative, while the offence struggled to even move to the ball, but by the last game of the regular season, Christ Church looked like a completely different team. In the final quarter of their final regular season, the Cavs scored six times and held one of the best 5A offences in the state to only 2 goals. Though they lost the game, these final 12 minutes show that CCES has the potential to win against any team that they play against.If you ask anyone on the team why they want to win against Greenville, they will all give you the same answer: Jack Sanders. Sanders, senior attackman, served as the only captain of this years team and has been the embodiment of good leadership. By not only leading by example but also through encouragement and passionate speeches, Jack earned the respect of the rest of the team. Now that the Cavs are in the playoffs, any loss will end their season and Jack Sander’s high school career. For that reason, the team is committed to giving Jack more than one last game.

Be sure to come out to Sirrine Stadium to watch the Cavaliers take on the Greenville High School Red Raiders.
