The Los Alamos High School Lacrosse team plays its last regular season home game at 4:30 pm. this Friday at Overlook Park in White Rock (Dara Jones Field) against Bosque Prep.
The season has played out very well with a 6-3 record against its league opponents.
The team is currently tied with Bosque for 2nd place, which will be determined by Friday’s game. Quarter final games will be played next week. Los Alamos hopes to advance to the semi-finals May 9 and the championships Saturday, May 11, both to be held at Sandia Prep in Albuquerque.
The team is very balanced and has matured throughout the season. The team’s success is due to a number of factors but hustle, good discipline and unselfish play leads the list of reasons. Head Coach Wyatt Dumas says, “They’re putting the team ahead of themselves and showing a lot of maturity. We have a lot of fierce competitors on our team; they’re all pushing each other to play better and holding each other accountable.”
For an upstart team to come into the league and have an immediate impact speaks well to the conditioning and cross-sport play of many of the athletes. The players have picked up the game very nicely.
Los Alamos Youth Lacrosse board members and volunteers have done an excellent job of organizing and executing LAYLAX’s second season. The organization has had many needs that have been filled by hours of selfless time contribution. The coaches have done a fabulous job of bringing a new sporting outlet to Los Alamos youth.
Sunday afternoon, Los Alamos Lacrosse’s Youth teams will scrimmage Santa Fe Lacrosse on the North Mesa soccer field. The U11 team will play at 1:30 p.m. and the U15 team will face off at 2:45 p.m.
