Lax Looks to Build a Winning Program

Kari Elzey

With new coaches and a few key star seniors gone, the Milford High varsity lacrosse team’s season has started a bit rocky. At 1-5 on the season, the team has struggled with some early lopsided losses; however, recently, they still showed their determination to win, falling just short to Newark, 9-6, on April 9.

“Obviously, the seniors from last year are gone and the coaches are different,” said Milford senior Adam Gonzalez. “But they have quickly adjusted to the team, and we have adjusted.”

 Hunter Robinson scored two goals, and Steven Horton, Colby Butler, Mitchell Breeding and John McIlvain each added one.

“I want us to get better from day-to-day and game-to-game,” said Milford head coach Joseph Vavala. “I want my players to understand the commitment and work it takes to build a winning program. We have some great athletes, and a goal is for us to win more games than any other team in Milford lacrosse history.”

Breeding and Dylan Jones added the two assists in the game, while goalie Billy Adams posted 17 saves. “I think our biggest challenge has been building confidence and a winning attitude,” said Coach Vavala. “Our program has great athletes and unparalleled district support. We are currently showing our athletes what it takes each day to prepare for success, and now we just need to execute in games and believe in ourselves.”
