Boys Lacrosse team misses its season and its family of players

Maxx Stewart

Lacrosse, the fastest game on two feet and arguably the most fun to watch, was a tough blow to miss out on among the other spring sports. Top competition included Curtis High School and Auburn Riverside.
The head coach returned after a one year hiatus to help take care of his newly born twins and the appointed team captains for this year include Liam Bethke, Niko Rolfness, Logan Seals and Maxx Stewart.
As junior Will Seley lamented, “It was a short but sweet season.”

The Lions got in all their captains’ practices but were cut short from playing any games, their first being against Auburn Riverside five days after the lockdown was announced.

Rolfness said, “I really enjoyed my Bellarmine experience all four years even if this season was cut short. This team has given me countless memories that I will cherish forever.”

The boys have made playoffs for the last 4 years. After all the hard work and training in the off season, the boys are looking to possibly play in games over the summer and the seniors are simply hoping to touch the field as a Lion just one more time. If not, they have four years of wins, celebrations, and good times to make up for it.

Season or no season, the Bellarmine Lions lacrosse team will always be a family. The players hosted their own parade and celebration for the seniors, an awesome moment for the team. They thank all the coaches, players, and fans who have supported Lions Lacrosse the last four years.
