The Tiger Lacrosse team will open up the 2017 season and defend their three consecutive titles tonight at 5:30 at home. The Tigers are optimistic for the game, and it’ll be interesting to see just how good the Lax team is after losing only four starters.
The Tigers open up against an out-of-state team from Nashville, TN. The Father Ryan Fightin’ Irish are a solid all-around team. Last year, they narrowly missed the Tennessee Scholastic Lacrosse Association Final Four after losing in OT by a single score.
However, Father Ryan is still extremely competitive, as seen by a 12-10 victory over Trinity, and only look to improve after losing only seven seniors, and returning 23 underclassmen.
Overall, this should be a good test for the Tigers, who claimed a victory over the Fightin’ Irish last year by a score of 13-4. The Road to State begins now.
