GAMEDAY INFORMATION

Saint Xavier Tigers (14-3) vs. KCD Bearcats (12-4)
Monday, May 15th
Round 1 Playoffs
6:00 PM
Saint Xavier High School
Louisville, KY

GAME NOTES

The Tiger Lacrosse team begins their pursuit of a fourth straight state championship tonight when they open up play against the Bearcats of KCD in the First Round of the playoffs. These two teams have not played this year head-to-head, but both teams are undefeated against common opponents in Manual, Male, and Collegiate.

Though they have not played, I would still favor the Tigers in this matchup, and I don’t believe the game will be very close. Look for the Tigers to really get going in the second quarter, and manage the game the rest of the way for a win.

My prediction is 16-4 Tigers.

Varsity Game – 12:00 PM

GAME NOTES

The No.1 Team in Kentucky looks to continue their dominance over the Bluegrass. The Tigers are undefeated this year against in-state opponents, most recently posting a whopping 32-2 victory over Male this past Wednesday.

Don’t look for the Tigers to slow down against Collegiate. While the Titans have some good players, overall, the team won’t hang around with St.X for long. Seniors Hudson Hill and Paul Porter have been wreaking havoc on opposing offenses while Joey Mackin and Nic Malubay have been offensive juggernauts.

Expect a win for the Tigers as they head into the last quarter of the regular season.

Friday, March 3rd
Varsity Game – 5:30 PM
JV Game – 7:00 PM
Saint Xavier High School
Louisville, KY

GAME NOTES

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.

Go Tigers!

Tiger Lacrosse Preview

The Tiger Lacrosse team will begin their defense of their three consecutive titles this upcoming Friday when they play Father Ryan, a team from Nashville, TN. We’ll start to focus on the opponent in the upcoming days, but we want to take a quick look at who the LAX team will be returning this season. We are going to highlight some position groups, and focus on who is poised for a big year. Let’s see how the Tigers look this year!

Attack:

Key Losses:

The Tigers lost their leading scorer from last year, John Mueller. Mueller scored 41 goals along with having 18 assists and was a key leader for last year’s team. He will be tough to replace because of his size and athleticism.

Key Returners:

The Tigers return 2 of 3 starters at attack. Junior Keegan Puffer and senior Joey Mackin will look to pick up right where they left off. Puffer, who had a team high 33 assists last season, along with 24 goals, looks to add to what was a very strong sophomore season. He is very shifty and can easily maneuver himself through the defense, which plays in his favor.  Mackin also looks to pick up where he left off last season. He had 22 goals, along with 27 assists for the Tigers. Both Mackin and Puffer will be need to have great seasons if this team wants to win a fourth straight state championship. Senior Nic Malubay saw limited playing time last year, but will see that increased in the 2017 season. He scored 5 goals and added 11 assists last year. However, there is no doubt these numbers will take a big jump. Malubay recently committed to play lacrosse at Centre College which shows the ability he has to make this a special season for him and the rest of his teammates.

Newcomers:

Sophomore Will Hubbs will look for an increased role on the Varsity team this year. Hubbs was pulled up from the JV team mid-season last year and will look to build on what was a solid season on the JV squad.

Midfield:

Key Losses:

Corbyn Buchart , currently playing with Transylvania University, was the Tigers leading face-off man last season. He won 101 face-offs, while only losing 59. Buchart was a great face-off player whose play on both sides of the field helped the Tigers tremendously.

Key Returners:

The Tigers return almost all of their main midfielders from last season. Jake Zickel, Patrick Anderson, Blake Roshkowski, Will Ginter, and Cole Stumler will see most of the playing time at this position. Roshkowski was held on the sidelines last year after an ACL injury during the preseason. He is now coming off of another ACL injury from football season, but was just recently cleared to play. It will be interesting to see how the former All-State midfielder returns to form coming off two season-ending injuries. Zickel and Anderson will provide an inside-outside combo. Zickel tends to play around the crease, while Anderson will make the most of his opportunities off shooting from the outside.

Cole Stumler will return as the Tigers’ lead face off man. He backed up Buchart last year and will look to increase his role this year. Peyton Bray will also help carry the load on face offs and appears to be a good distributor for the Tigers.

Will Ginter and Harrison Pate highlight the defensive midfielders and will look to have a strong season. Ginter specifically can force a turnover, then torch the other team with his blazing speed and ability to get up and down the field.

Overall, all of the midfielders have great knowledge about the game which is often overlooked.

Defense:

Key Losses:

Caleb Grimes has been a main stead for the Tiger Defense since his freshman year. The Tigers will feel the loss of Grimes’ leadership and his ability on that side of the field. He was the lockdown defender for the Tigers, so someone will need to step into that role.

Key Returners:

Other than Grimes, the Tigers return majority of the starters on the defensive side, which seems to be a popular theme this year. Seniors Paul Porter and Matthew Shewmaker along with juniors Max Malkani and Ben Mueller will be big for the Tigers on defense. Porter, who had a team high 45 ground balls last season, will look to be a leader this year on defense. Shewmaker saw some playing time last year, but will definitely see his action increased this year. His speed and agility will make him a big-time player for the Tigers. Mueller and Malkani are both very tall with long arms which plays in their favor, especially on defense. Their footwork is also key to their success.

Goalie:

Key Returner:

The goalie position is pretty much locked up for the upcoming season. Senior Hudson Hill and now graduate Bryce Perram switched off at this key position last year. However, Hill should see almost all of the playing time this season. Last year he saved 33 shots on 80 shots on goal. Hill looks to have a strong season at arguably the hardest and most important position on the field.

Team:

The Tigers have a tough out-of-state schedule, and if they are successful, they could climb up the National Rankings quickly. This schedule is highlighted by Cincinnati St.X and Cathedral, who were the 5th and 7th ranked teams in the Midwest by Inside Lacrosse last year. In Kentucky, the Tigers look to continue their dominance in the Bluegrass. Their top competition for the State Title this year looks to be that team on Shelbyville Road, but the Tigers have not lost to them since 2013.

The Tiger Lacrosse team are the 3x Defending State Champions, and anything less than a fourth straight title would be a disappointment. Coach Howe and Co. know what it takes to win, so they’ll approach this year the same as any other.

So, with the Tigers opening up the season this Friday at home at 5:30, make sure to be there and get rowdy!

GO TIGERS!

2017 Winter Signing Day

1st Row:

1st Row: Austin Cook (Campbellsville), Zac Collins (Purdue), Desmond Ridder (Cincinatti), Braidon Washburn (Lindsey Wilson). 2nd Row: Dallas Miles (Mount Union), Sam McDonogh (Morehead State), Blake Roshkowski (Bellarmine), and Curry Stevens (Tiffin)

Today was a big day for eight Tiger athletes, as they signed their Letters of Intent to enroll in their respective colleges and play at the next level. Congrats to the following athletes!

Austin Cook – Campbellsville: Cook has been a four year varsity team member and has contributed to the team every year. He currently wrestles in the 120 pound weight class.

Zac Collins – Purdue:Collins will be continuing the tradition of St.X punters going on to play with a D1 program. Following in the footsteps of his older brother Jake (WKU) and Mason King (Louisville), Zac was a very valuable member to the Tiger Football team this year. He earned numerous accolades including All-District and All-State Honors.

Desmond Ridder – Cincinatti: The Tiger Quarterback has been the offensive focal point for the team since he took over the reigns his junior year. Over his career, he has accounted for 3,142 total yards and 39 touchdowns.

Braidon Washburn – Lindsey Wilson: Washburn started at Outside Linebacker and was a centerpiece of the Tiger Defense this season. He led the team in forced fumbles and total tackles.

Dallas Miles – Mount Union: Dallas has been a member of the varsity wrestling team since his freshman year and has been a valuable member over the course of his career. He currently wrestles in the 152 pound weight class and is ranked #5 in Kentucky.

Sam McDonogh – Morehead State: Although McDonogh did not get to play his senior season due to injury, McDonogh will sign on to kick at Morehead State. As a junior, he was named to the All-District team and was one of the most consistent kickers in the Louisville Area.

Blake Roshkowski – Bellarmine: Blake has been a valuable member to the football and lacrosse teams since his sophomore year. Roshkowski committed to play D1 Lacrosse with his brother Will during his junior year. However, he wasn’t able to suit up his junior lacrosse season due to an ACL tear, and had the same injury during this past football season. However, in the time that Roshkowski has been able to play, he was one of, if not THE best midfielders in Kentucky. He was named to 1st Team All State as a sophomore.

Curry Stevens – Tiffin: Stevens has been a member of the Varsity Soccer team since his junior season. He primarily played outside back for the Tiger Soccer team.

This past Sunday, fifty five members of the Tiger Lacrosse team took part in the Kiwanis Club’s annual “Shop with a Child” event at the Walmart on Preston Highway. The volunteer players helped over 400 children go through and pick up clothing, toys, and other necessities.

The team represented their school very well and put a lot of smiles on kids’ faces. Go Tigers and Happy Holidays!

2015 EXPYS

The EXPYS have been open for two days now, and we are starting to see some of the early favorites in voting so far. Athletes and teams have already taken the lead in their respective categories and have tried to put space between those in the hunt.

As a reminder, every Tuesday and Friday we will be giving updates on the voting results. A brief breakdown of every category will be included, as well. Next week, more extensive rundowns will be given on each category, so make sure to check our site or Twitter for updates.

Also, we have been told that people are having trouble voting from their phones, so to fix that, we will be moving all of the voting to the home page for the 2016 EXPYS. The past winners will be moved to its own separate page under the 2016 EXPYS tab. This way, you will not have to switch between pages to vote for each category.
