In the previous decade, Episcopal went 74-91 (a .448 winning pct.) in boys' lacrosse, according to the lacrosse database LaxPower.com.
The new decade has started a little better. Entering a showdown at No. 2 Landon on Friday, the Maroon (7-0) is ranked No. 10 and sporting a little bit of confidence.
"We're excited about the start to our season," Coach Scott Conklin said. "But we know the schedule is about to get tougher."
The Maroon have a pair of juniors leading the way offensively. Attackman Connor Gallegos has 32 goals and nine assists and midfielder Nick Weeden has 10 goals and 13 assists.
Meantime, senior midfielder Hunter DeButts, one of the top players in the area, has 10 goals and nine assists. DeButts will attend Princeton.
Landon (8-2) has rebounded after back-to-back losses last month. It defeated No. 5 DeMatha on Wednesday, 6-2, behind three goals from junior Patrick Keena and nine saves from senior goalie Will Joyce.
Joyce had made 17 saves in a 6-5 victory over Gilman (Md.) on Saturday; it was the first victory for the Bears at Gilman in Coach Rob Bordley's 30 seasons.To continue reading this article, please visit the Washington Post at:
