Belmont Hill Lacrosse 2023 Dominates to Start the Season

Entering the 2023 season, the lacrosse team had a significant amount of pressure on them after a successful season last year and a roster loaded with talented players. So far into the season, the lacrosse team has not disappointed. Eight games into the season the team is yet to lose a single game, boasting an impressive 8-0 overall record. This record is highlighted by a dominant performance against St. Georges, where the team traveled to St. Georges and defeated them 20-2. Another highlight of the season so far was a 6-5 thriller win against Avon Old Farms, and a 6-4 win against a loaded top team in Brunswick. This year’s team is spearheaded by Finn Fox along with captains, Eli Goldstein, Mathew Torrey, and Charlie Hazard. In the National Lacrosse Federation’s most recent high school power ranking, Belmont Hill cracked the top ten in the country. The all-star group looks to continue its dominant streak in the games ahead. 

When asked what was one thing the team had done well, head coach Tim Sullivan answered, “The team has done an incredible job of practicing with a purpose and competing at practice.  We graduated a large senior class and players have stepped up and into larger roles than they had in previous years.” When asked what the team could improve on, Coach Sullivan said “Playing a full 48 minutes with no let downs, especially the occasional penalty. We are getting there and getting closer to that every day.” It had been readily apparent that the captains this year have had a lasting impact on the team and Coach Sullivan could not have agreed more, “The captains have been tremendous in setting the tone for the team and being an extension of the coaching staff on and off the field.” Finally, in response to the question of which win he found most impressive, Coach Sullivan simply stated “The next one.” 

Looking ahead the teams seek its 14th ISL title since the foundation of the league and to avenge their playoff loss last year to governors. The tenth-ranked team in the country looks to continue their dominant streak with only six games remaining this season. The Panel wishes good luck to the lacrosse team and in the rest of their games throughout the season!
