Boys’ Lacrossse Faces Tough Loss Against Miramonte

Senior Tyler Kivelson warms up before tie game.

Boys’ varsity lacrosse faced off against Miramonte on March 11. Both programs have had a history of competitive rivalry games, with Campo having a multiple year winning streak against the Matadors.

The Cougars lost the tough game 13-8 after Miramonte gained a strong start. Campo struggled during the 1st half of the game, and once the 2nd half began, it was too late for the Cougs to catch up and gain a lead.

“It was a tough game, we got off to a slow start. Once we got into pure zone defense we stopped them, but once we switched back we couldn’t stop them,” said junior Evan Louis (he/him).

Junior Holden Coakley (he/him) echoed his teammate, “We came out weak, and then we did better in the 2nd half, but it was too late.”

Despite the loss, the team is focusing on their upcoming games in the season and are using their loss as a learning opportunity. “We really just got to work on our individual selves and not turn the ball over. We just have to hopefully win out so we can see them again in playoffs,” said Louis.

Coakley believes Campo needs to come out with better starts: “Just coming out stronger, working on passing and throwing,” is something they need to improve on. Mental toughness to start out games and individual skill work is a big focus for the team.

”Our strategies are to not let up as many fastbreak goals, and are to work on running our offense better,” said junior Patrick Sebree (he/him).

The Cougars have an away game against Las Lomas this week, and they feel good. “ [We have a] Las Lomas [game] this friday, and we’re feeling confident,” said Sebree.
