Boy’s Lacrosse: Strength in numbers
By: NICOLE RISELL Indian Chief Oren Lyons once said, “There are two times of the year that stir the blood. In the fall, for the hunt, and now for lacrosse.” There is definitely something stirring here on the PAHS lacrosse fields. With a PAC-10 record of 2-2 (2-4 overall), the Phantoms Boys’ Lacrosse team is optimistic to make the playoffs this season. Senior captains A.J. Ryan and John Moser lead the Phantoms this season. Other seniors include Khalil Ervin, Kevin Hyland, Ryan Kuhns, Max Kulp, Chris Rossi, Matt Talarico, Dan Tornetta, and Shawn Wassel. Juniors Burke Bodo, Morgan Frees, goalie Josh Frey, Steve Kinback, John Kornaga, Tom Leupold, Mike Semenuik, Josh Sommers, Matt Viscuso, and Brian Woodall also provide the team with talent. Sophomores Vinnnie D’Innocenzo, Chris Fry, Tim Hackett, Mason Kulp, Dakota Lantrip, Bryce Morse, Evan Panepinto, Mackey Park, and Matt Randall provide depth for the Phantoms. Nineteen freshmen round out the team. The team is coached by Head Coach O’Brien and Assistant Coach Seel. Coach Seel is eager to see how the season plays out. He defines the season as “a mixed review because we beat two PAC-10 teams and then lost to Boyertown.” After losing a lot of seniors last season, Coach Seel remains in good spirits. He said, “This year a large class of freshmen came out with a lot of skills that will definitely contribute to our successes this season.” He also said, “Any success this year will be a direct Two Lacrosse players fight for position during a game this spring. result of teamwork.” Captain AJ Ryan said, “We continue to work hard as a team and be The loss of a big group of son, but nonetheless, the Phan- pared to last season, this year’s competitive.
