Boys lacrosse has high hopes for season

The Zionsville boys lacrosse team is poised to have another strong season in 2014.

Last year, the Eagles advanced to the state semifinals before losing to Carmel. Head coach Matt Garvey said that he has liked the effort he has seen from the team in the couple of weeks they have been together.

"We have a great group of kids," Garvey said. "We had tryouts two weeks ago and then before that we were inside doing some conditioning. It has been cold out, but the kids haven't complained, they have done everything we have asked them to do at this point."

The Eagles have looked sharp so far, winning a scrimmage against Southport 20-0 and the season opener Friday, March 14 against Heritage Christian 19-1.

Cameron Bender led the Eagles with six goals in the win, with Luke Whitakers scoring four goals and dishing out five assists.

Tucker Dixon scored three goals and Matt Welch had two. Jared Overmyer, Dave Peterson, Ben Sherman and Alex Cain all scored as well for the Eagles.

"It was good for us to get out there and play someone in a different colored jersey," Garvey said. "We told them in that we want to focus on us. We wanted to focus on our system and our things. We accomplished that and now we have something on film that we can break down and look at."

Garvey said the goals for the team are similar to what they have been in the past for Zionsville.

"Our goals for this team is first to win conference," Garvey said. "We won it last year the first year we had a conference, we went 4-0 and that is the goal again. Then we want to win a state championship. Then a bigger program goal is to produce great young men. From the time they enter our program to the time they exit as seniors, we want them to have learned something. They may or may not remember anything about lacrosse, but they may remember a community service project we did or something like that. For expectations, they are meeting them. We just want them to do what we ask. We are going to push them, but we won't push them to something they can't do or overcome. We want them to work hard, listen and learn."
