Alex Reyes is picking up right where he left off last season as one of the top discus throwers. A second place finish Saturday and an event championship at yesterday's Windsor Invitational make him a hard man to defeat. The team and especially seniors have had a good run lately. Today the throwers compete at Lutheran South for varsity and Priory for JV, and the entire squad travels to SLUH tomorrow.
VARSITY LACROSSE: For those who braved the tundra-like conditions last night got to witness a great match. In a 33-goal, 17-16 OT firefight, the Griffins defeated the John Burroughs Bombers in the first annual HEADstrong Charity game. The Griffin offense was running on all cylinders with scoring coming from 7 different players. The defense play of Chad Brown, Drew Hayden, Clay Bruner, Pat McCaffrey Adam Gilmore, and Paul Catanzaro, especially in Man-Down situations, was monumental. Tyler Skaggs dominated at the face off winning 27 of 36 match ups. A special thank you goes out to all the fans who helped us raise over $560 for Blood Cancer research.
