Varsity lacrosse crushes rivals during senior night

Katrina Wong
Carlmont and Sequoia students fight each other for the ball at the beginning of the first quarter. Carlmont beat Sequoia 17-2 on May 9 during Carlmont’s senior night.

Carlmont varsity lacrosse beat rival Sequoia 17-2. This win gives the Scots a league record of 5-2 and an overall record of 9-6.

This win was beneficial to Carlmont because it was the last game of the season, as well as being senior night. Carlmont has 12 graduating seniors this upcoming year.

“Everyone was coming together and it was the best game we had so far. It was good endnote for all the seniors,” said senior captain Luke Cadona.

Cadona was a top scorer this game, leading the team with 6 goals. The other top scorer was Jack Morris, a senior, who scored 5 goals in the game. 

“I think we brought the intensity from past games to come out and push through. I scored less than I did last game, but I am still happy I made a positive contribution to our win,” said Morris.

The top scorer for Sequoia was sophomore Clayton Cosentino, who recognized the accomplishments of Carlmont’s players.

“The Scots are a really strong team and they took control of the game, making us fall behind. The seniors were really good and I wish them the best of luck in college,” said Cosentino.

The team made improvements throughout the season that was prevalent in the game.

“Today was a nice culmination of a very productive season, a season where our guys really improved throughout. Between tonight’s game and last Thursday’s game, they put everything together and I couldn’t be more proud of these guys,” said head coach Todd Irwin.

Over the course of the season, teamwork and encouragement were clearly visible on and off the field.

“In the beginning of the season we were struggling with connecting and having good teamwork, but by the end, we all knew each other’s tendencies and really came together to dominate the field,” said Cadona.

This concept of the closeness of the team was significant towards one family, who was the muse for some fashion choices worn during this game.

Benjamin Schnapp, a senior, said, “My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in December and thankfully we caught it really early. We are really lucky that it was cured in just a few months,” said Schnapp.

The team wore pink socks and stickers in support for his mother’s fight against breast cancer.

“[Schnapp] demonstrated his support for his mom and we admired that as a coaching staff. We decided to join him as a team, and what better way to do it with socks?” said Irwin.

Carlmont boys varsity lacrosse will miss the graduating seniors, but they worked to have a fantastic season.
