The Walpole High girls lacrosse team is off to a strong start, as the team picked up six wins in a row to open the season.
To open the spring lacrosse season, the Rebels picked up a 16-11 win against Newton North. The team picked up its second win against Wellesley 17-16, and faced off with Brookline and gained a 10-1 win.
Over April vacation, the team was busy with several games scheduled. The team picked up a 16-7 win against non-league opponent Duxbury, and a 17-8 win against non-league King Philip.
To close out April Vacation, the team picked up a 15-8 win against Ashland.
For head coach Mike Tosone, he is proud to see his team enjoying an early undefeated record. He created a strong and talented group of players with providing necessary depth.
“We have a lot of very good players, giving us the type of depth that is pretty hard for opposing teams to prepare for,” Tosone said.
Despite holding an undefeated record as of April 25, Tosone noted it is not a realistic goal to have heading further into the season.
“Going undefeated is not a realistic goal,” Tosone said. “What we hope to do, is maintain our quality of play throughout the season, and let the chips fall were they may.”
Tosone highlighted the win against Wellesley as one of the toughest so far this season, with the Rebels picking up the win in overtime. Other than Wellesley, Tosone noted Needham, Framingham, and Foxboro are tough teams the Rebels will face later in the season.
Looking forward, Tosone is hopeful that the Rebels will enjoy a successful season and a postseason run.
“[Our] goals are the same as always: Have fun, compete like crazy every game, and win a bunch of them,” Tosone said. “Go as far as we can come tournament time.”
