As previously announced, we are adding boys lacrosse to the CCSC athletics program this spring. Athletic Director James Morin, a former collegiate player and assistant coach, tapped his extensive lax network to secure equipment donations. Epoch donated 20 sticks — some assembly required — so the team met after school today to string each stick. With a video tutorial and Mr. Morin’s help, the boys learned how to tie knots and weave a string to attach a basket to the head of each stick. Stringing takes manual dexterity, focus and patience — and the willingness to stick around after school on an early release day to get the job done. Our team is already showing its mettle, and they haven’t even set foot on the playing field.
