Men’s Lacrosse Beats Bedford!

Growing up in a lacrosse and hockey family, Skyline’s lacrosse team is my top recommendation for anyone looking to pursue a Spring sport. The eventful Men’s Varsity Lacrosse win against Bedford Lacrosse on Wednesday, April 12 boosted the team morale and community more than ever. It’s obvious from the teamwork on the field and encouragement on the sideline that the team is already thriving this year and will most likely continue to do so. 

“It’s a great group of people to be around,” says Owen Simmons (‘24), attack player for the varsity Lacrosse team. 

Their triumphant performance against Bedford felt sort of sudden to fans in the audience because the scoreboard had some technical difficulties when Skyline was down; by the time it was back up, Skyline had scored twice.

“I was trying to fix things, but I definitely made it worse,” said team parent and scoreboard operator Jeanie Wilson. “A couple heroes came and fixed it.” Wilson accidentally turned off the scoreboard, in an attempt to fix it. Against all odds, however, she is still running the same scoreboard in almost every game.

The 8-5 Skyline win against Bedford proves how much the team is improving year by year. Just a year ago, this team lost to Bedford 12-4. “We’re starting to work towards our offensive goals and we’re getting closer and closer each practice,” Dom Wilson (‘24) said. Simmons shared this optimistic perspective: “I think compared to the other teams, we’ve got more skill than we did last year”

The Skyline Lacrosse JV team is doing equally as Varsity so far this season, starting the season with a 2-0 record. This was a slight surprise to some players, including Ben Begosso (‘26). “I’d say about 90% of the team is new,” Begosso said. Begosso, along with a majority of this year’s brand new JV team, were recruited by Dom Wilson from Skyline’s hockey team after their season ended.

The lacrosse team here at Skyline is very grateful to this year’s coaches, especially returning coach Smitty Atwood. Atwood was with the program at its beginnings. Atwood returned to Skyline again this year, ensuring a great season to come. 

The Men’s Lacrosse season continues until the end of the 22-23 school year, so be sure to see a game when you can! Their next game is Thursday, May 4. Their full schedule is also available on their website,

“It’s a fun atmosphere,” says Simmons, “The games… even the practices, it’s always just fun.”
