Boys Lacrosse Team Obliterates Opponent in First Game


With spring quickly approaching, it means the end of basketball season, and the beginning of new seasons. Baseball, boys and girls lacrosse, boys soccer, and track are all starting their seasons with fresh minds and hope for success. So far, Farragut athletics has been extremely successful. The boys soccer team took a 5-0 win against Cookeville on Saturday, while the boys baseball team took a 6-2 win against Christian Academy of Knoxville. Members of Farragut’s track team got first place at an indoor meet at Vanderbilt. Girls lacrosse recently beat Saint Benedict at Auburndale with a final score of 17-3. 

Lacrosse team captains from left to right: Garrett Howe, Jackson Richardson, Dylan Edrada, Foster Defranco, and Titus Chapman.

With all of these exciting wins under the school’s belt, one stands out as particularly impressive. Boys lacrosse defeated the Roane County Knights with a final score of 18-1 during Friday night’s game. All the more impressive, it was the team’s first game of the season, and the starting goalie, Nicolas Anningson, was out with a broken wrist. The boys banded together to pull out the win for a great start to the season.

Senior and Captain Dylan Edrada says this of the game, “It was a great win to start out the season with, but we still have a lot of work to do to prepare for the harder teams.”


The captains pose for another shot, this time, serious.

The team is not only made up of upperclassman, but is completed with sophomores and freshman too.

Sophomore starter Sam Lefler said, “It’s very stressful, and I feel like there is a lot of pressure on me to succeed,” when asked how playing with older, bigger kids affects him.

But he didn’t let the pressure get to his head, scoring a goal against the Knights. 

Boys lacrosse has two upcoming games, with one against Sullivan County on Friday, and another against Signal Mountain on Saturday. Hopefully they can pull out more 17-point leads, and as always, #goads.
