Whoooosssshhhhh! Catch, yes! Go, Warriors lacrosse!
The Warriors wrapped up the season with six wins and four losses.
Player Ryan Pepe, a seventh-grader, was considered one of the team’s star players. As of early April, he’d scored 16 goals, and Coach Travis Able credited him with helping the Warriors win four games.

More than 25 students — one of them a girl — have begun lacrosse conditioning at Okeeheelee Middle, the team’s coach says.
The team has recruited nearly 10 students from schools that don’t offer lacrosse, according to the coach.
Practices take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m. It’s not too late to join.
The first game of this season is expected to take place in February.
