Boys Lax Beats Whitefield 10-9 In First Round of Playoffs

In a wild night of scoring and inspired defense, the Boys Lacrosse team traveled to Whitefield Academy and emerged with a historic victory: it is the first boys lacrosse playoff win in school history. 

The Raiders came out strong and ran a lead up to 5-1, but the Wildcats never backed away and continually battled to keep things close. The Raiders struggled with penalties in the third quarter and the Wildcats continued to inch closer. When the fourth quarter rolled around, the pressure on both teams was palpable and the outcome appeared indiscernable. But the Raiders contined to play as a team and made key plays down the stretch, holding the Wildcats scoreless for the final two minutes. 

The Raiders, the #4 team from Area 2, move on in the State Class A-5A tournament to face Greater Atlanta Christian, the #2 seed from Area 4, on Monday, May 6 at 7pm.
