Lacrosse features strong league showing

When senior Kaden Snead ran out of the goal, the Scripps Ranch Lacrosse team didn’t know what to do as the Poway goalkeeper sprinted out on offense to try and score. The team captain failed to score a goal but was successful in getting the team excited and hyped during the game.

Varsity boys’ lacrosse this season has been a fun one. They started out with some big wins against Coronado, Mount Carmel, St. Augustine, and Del Norte. The team then took two losses but bounced back strongly against Scripps Ranch on April 5, defeating the Falcons 16-1. 

The squad is currently the seven-seed in the playoffs, and are looking to play either Torrey Pines or Santa Fe Christian.

Goalkeeper Kaden Snead is the captain and leader of the team. 

“It means a lot to be voted captain by the team and knowing the team sees me as a leader,” Snead said. “Some responsibilities are helping plan practices and helping my team stay on track to make sure we’re prepared for every game.” 

Snead has been playing lacrosse all four years of high school and is going to attend Stevenson University to play lacrosse. 

“My favorite game we played so far is Del Norte because it’s good to beat them after losing to them last year,” Snead said. 

They played the Nighthawks on March 26 and defeated them 22-8. This was the team’s second largest margin of victory just behind the Scripps Ranch win.

Leading the team on offense was junior Robby Breisch. He has been the top goal scorer and top assist leader this season. Other high scorers helping him out are seniors Ben Jasinski and Gael Gonzales. 

“My favorite moment from lacrosse was when we beat Torrey my freshman year,” Jasinski said.
