Senior Lacrosse Boys Sign Off


Reed Foltz goes in for a 1V1

On Wednesday, May 2, the Regis Jesuits varsity boys lacrosse team took on Castle View at
6:30 pm on Lou Kellog for their 2023 senior night. It was a cloudy evening, but the Raiders’ lively energy allowed them to overcome the cold weather and pull out a 15-7 win against the Castle View Saber Cats.

Going into this game, Regis Jesuit had an 87% chance of winning, although this did not affect how they played. Regis Jesuit came out firing on all cylinders, with goals from Fletcher Sullivan, Connnor Nesbitt, Reed Foltz, Jamie Rosenzweig, Logan Farrington, Matthew Tartel, Mattie Cain, Ryan Coughhlin, Ethan Hughes, William Wilson, and Dylan Kummer. In addition, senior goalkeeper, Spencer Day, made many impressive saves, demonstrating his athleticism and understanding of the game.

Teamwork plays a huge role in this team’s success.

“I don’t think it was led by anyone, I think we had a great team effort, and I think the ball moved really quick and we just played as a team like we know how,” Senior Fletcher Sullivan said after the game.

The boy’s lacrosse players communicate very well on the field; in the crowd, you can hear them constantly helping one another to keep everyone on the same page; this has helped them win throughout their season.

After each goal, the Raiders gather together and celebrate; this comradery and support has created a positive environment where all players can thrive. These moments were bittersweet; Jack Casey and Zach Lugenbill describe how they feel about wrapping up their final season at Regis Jesuit,

“It’s gonna be hard, I’ve gone to school with Zach since I was three, so it will be weird not seeing him in the halls next year,” Casey says

“It’s gonna be sad, but when Jack comes back from Westpoint he will be able to visit me in boulder.” Senior Zach Lugnebill comments.

The Regis Jesuit Varsity boys lacrosse team is genuinely a tight-knit family; with unconditional support from parents, these boys were able to have a great season and punch their tickets to playoffs.
