  • Varsity Falls To MBA In TSLA Quarterfinals

    The varsity lacrosse team’s postseason run came to an end last Friday in the semifinals when we traveled to play at MBA and lost in a close game. We had lost to MBA a month earlier, 12-0, but we had several good weeks of practice and improvement. I am proud of the way the team responded to the challenge and the way they competed last Friday night. We had a great first quarter and jumped out to a 4-1 lead. We were hanging onto that lead at halftime, 6-4, but we gave up that lead in the third quarter, ending the third quarter down two goals, 8-6. However, we managed to get back within one goal at 9-8 just inside five minutes to go in the game. Unfortunately, the final score was 10-8.
     
    Despite the outcome, I am proud of the way the team came together at the end of the season. I hope this season will give our underclassmen a little motivation going into the offseason. As for the seniors, thank you for all of your work, leadership, and dedication over the past four seasons. It has been a great run, which has included three state titles.

  • Lacrosse Play Offs Begin

    Every game is potentially the last game in the postseason. Teams can approach the postseason a number of different ways. It can be seen as having to fight for survival or an opportunity to fight to gain an opportunity to gain glory.
     
    Last week, we had a good week of practice, and it showed when we played Father Ryan in the TSLA quarterfinal game at home on Saturday, winning 19-7.
     
    This week, we are preparing for our rematch against MBA in the semifinals. We are returning to the scene of the 12-0 loss back in early April. MBA runs an outstanding and well-balanced “Pairs” style offense; they have left-handed and right-handed shooters; they can all dodge; they are dangerous off ball; and they share and move the ball very efficiently. We will have to have outstanding communication and team defensive effort to slow down the MBA offense. Most importantly, we will need to focus and take care of all aspects of the game that we did not the first time, particularly face-offs, ground balls, clearing, riding, and offensive possessions. We really need another good week of practice this week, and I expect that we will and be ready for Friday!

  • Legacy Cup Tournament Recap

    Last weekend, we traveled to Georgia to compete in the 11th annual Legacy Lacrosse Cup, our eighth time participating in this prestigious event. It has been a great opportunity for our team over the years, not just for the competition but for the valuable message the event sends to our players. The vision of this event is to showcase elite lacrosse at the high-school level. They also want to make sure the game is played at the highest level in the most competitive environment. Their message is to encourage players to live a life that will have a positive and meaningful impact on teammates, classmates, and other members of the community.

    In addition to the two games we played, the organizers of the event recognize one player on each team who most personifies the three pillars of the Legacy Lacrosse Cup: character, camaraderie, and competitiveness. Winners are nominated and voted on by their team members and announced at a dinner. This year’s Legacy Leadership Award for the MUS team went to Sellers Shy. Congratulations to Sellers on this recognition.

    The Legacy Lacrosse Cup was started in memory of Parker Jackson, a sixteen-year-old sophomore playing for Milton High School Lacrosse who died in a single vehicle accident November 7, 2006.

  • MUS Falls To MICDS

    The best way to describe the MICDS lacrosse game last Thursday is following cliché: "revenge is a dish best served cold." MUS and MICDS have played five games against each other in the past six years, and MUS won all five of those games. Last Thursday was a different story. It was an MICDS story. It was a revenge game, and MICDS executed almost flawlessly on a cold, wet April day. It was also a good example to our younger players of what happens when years of hard work and opportunity meet.
     
    We travel this weekend to participate in the Legacy Lacrosse Cup in Atlanta and will face off against some of Georgia’s finest teams: Centennial High School (11-4) from Roswell, Georgia and Lassiter High School (14-1) from Marietta, Georgia. We need a good week of practice, and I truly believe that our team will respond well to the adversity and rise to the challenge. Go, Owls!

  • MBA Father Ryan Recap

    It was a great night to be an MBA student. I can say without a doubt that MBA students do their homework, do their research, and come prepared, and I am not just referring to their lacrosse team but their student body and fans on the crowded sideline.
     
    For those who have not experienced playing lacrosse at MBA, it is one of the best atmospheres to play a game. If you are a visiting MUS team, you can expect the students will know your number, your name, your girlfriend’s name, your sister’s name, and anything else they can find to use to support their team. For one night you will have the pleasure of being treated like a celebrity athlete, like Lebron James on the road getting worked by every experienced heckler in the house. It is an awesome and electrifying atmosphere that our players have learned to enjoy over the years. Even when we lose, our guys always have a good story to tell about the MBA student body. When it is all said and done, it is the kind of experience that helps you grow a few more hairs on your chest.
     
    As the proverb says, “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” We ran into the sharp teeth of the MBA buzzsaw, and although the saw cut and tore our hearts, it is the kind of thing we need to help sharpen our team. The great thing about competition is it has the potential to bring the best out in us.
     
    We do not have much time to dwell in the past because we are playing at ECS this Tuesday night, and then it is off on the road on Thursday as we travel to play our out-of-state rivals MICDS, whom we have played five out of the last six years. We know they will be good, being the 2016, 2017, and 2018 Missouri State Champions, but I expect us to be up to the task.
