On day 2 of our spring sports previews, we take a look at the boys and girls lacrosse teams who are always contenders in the always tough Bay State Conference and D1 South. The boys will be entering a new chapter this year as Jim Connolly takes over as head coach for Rocky Batty and will be guiding a Raider team who finished 13-5 a year ago and defeated Mansfield in the first round of the playoffs before falling to Duxbury in the quarterfinals. As I said though this Raider team is always a contender and it should be no different this year.
Girls lacrosse also finished 13-5 a year ago and advanced to the south semifinals after wins over Milton and Braintree, before falling to eventual state champion Needham. The girls will once again to look to battle for a top spot in both league and tournament play and should be a tough out for any opponent once again this year. Stay tuned tomorrow as we look at both tennis teams.
