Brainerd Lacrosse Seeking First Victory


85-77 TO CAPTURE THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP.>>>LA CROSSE IS CONSIDERED TO BE THE FASTEST GROWING SPORT IN AMERICA. AND IT IS SLOWLY MAKING ITS WAY NORTH IN MINNESOTA. BRAINERD BECAME THE NEWEST VARSITY LACROSSE TEAM LAST YEAR WHEN THEIR SQUAD MADE THE JUMP FROM CLUB TO VARSITY. THIS YEAR THE WARRIORS LOOK TO MAKE PROGRAM HISTORY AND GET THEIR FIRST WIN.>>WHEN WE STEPPED UP TO THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL, YOU CAN TOTALLY TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLUB AND HIGH SCHOOL. IT IS A VERY BIG CHANGE. IT’S A LOT MORE FAST PACED. THE BALLS ARE FLYING EVERYWHERE. GOALS ARE BEING SCORED A LOT MORE OFTEN.>>IT WAS A MOVE THAT THE ENTIRE TEAM WANTED TO MAKE. BUT THE WARRIORS MAY HAVE BEEN UNDERESTIMATING THE COMPETITION LEVEL WHEN THEY MADE THE JUMP FROM CLUB TO VARSITY LAST SEASON.>>LAST YEAR WE WERE KIND OF LIKE ALMOST IN SHELL SHOCK ALMOST. WE WERE LIKE WOW, LIKE WE MADE IT HERE, BUT YEAH, THIS YEAR WE’RE READY — THE BOYS, WE’RE READY TO GET IT FOR SURE.>>I THINK THIS YEAR WE SHOULD BE DOING PRETTY GOOD BECAUSE THEY GOT A GOOD TASTE OF IT LAST YEAR AND KIND OF, YOU KNOW, A TASTE OF THE TEMPO AT LEAST.>>BRAINERD WAS WINLESS IN THEIR FIRST SEASON AT THE VARSITY LEVEL. BUT JUST BEING A VARSITY SPORT HAS LED TO MORE INTEREST.>>I THINK THAT THE FIRST YEAR WE WERE VARSITY SPORT WE HAD MORE INTEREST THAN WHEN WE WERE A CLUB. I KNOW WE HAD ABOUT 36 KIDS LAST YEAR. AND WE ARE PUSHING 50 THIS YEAR.>>LAST YEAR THE WARRIORS WERE ADDING NEW COACHES THROUGHOUT THE SEASON, BUT THIS YEAR BRAINERD HAS FOUR COACHES THAT HAVE BEEN COMMITTED SINCE DAY ONE AND THEY EVEN HAVE A NEW HEAD COACH.>>KIND OF HAS A BASE FOR SURE, AND I LIKE THAT WE HAVE AN EXTRA COACH AND A HEAD COACH AND A NEW GUY THAT’S LEARNING. AND THEY WILL LEARN WITH US.>>THE COACHES AND THE PLAYERS KNOW THE ONE THING THAT HAS TO IMPROVE IF THEY WANT TO GET A WIN THIS SEASON >>JUST WORKING ON GETTING THE BALL UP THE FIELD AND JUST BALL MOVEMENT IN GENERAL.>>BALL MOVEMENT.>>WORKING ON BALL MOVEMENT AND FINDING THOSE OPEN SPACES WHERE YOU CAN GET THAT STEP ON THE DEFENDER, WHERE YOU CAN GET A SHOT OFF >>IF BRAINERD IS ABLE TO GET THAT WIN THIS YEAR, IT WILL BE A MOMENT THAT THE SENIOR CLASS WILL NEVER FORGET.>>IT IS MY FOURTH YEAR PLAYING LA CROSSE AND I HAVEN’T WON A GAME, SO I DON’T EVEN KNOW YET. SO YEAH, IT WILL BE EXCITING. IT WILL BE EXCITING. THE WHOLE TEAM. BOYS WILL BE JUMPING.>>REPORTING FROM BRAINERD,
