Spring Sports Review: Boys Lacrosse

Season Update

5-4 (2-2)

Proving to be a growing force in Texas Lacrosse, the 5-4 Dragons have already topped last year’s win total with four games remaining on the season. With the knowledge that to be the best, you have to play the best, head coach Bart Sullivan loaded the already tough D1 district play — including No. 1 state-ranked Dallas Jesuit— with non-district games against some very accomplished teams in the state and the region. The Dragons, having lost a close match to Jesuit, 4-7, also had a narrow 11-16 defeat from the state’s No. 2 ranked team, The Woodlands. For good measure, the Dragons traveled to Denver for a head-to-head match with Colorado’s defending back-to-back state champions and current No. 1 Arapahoe High School. With a win over non-district opponent Kingwood (Houston), 14-6, the team has been more than ready for district play. With a lopsided 20-5 defeat over Plano and a close win over their neighbor Plano West, 5-3, the team is now on a three-game winning streak that leaves them in great position for a playoff run as they finish up the regular season against rival Allen Eagles at Dragon Stadium.

About the team

In his second year at Southlake, Sullivan, a University of Denver All-Decade Team selection, has stressed an open system that focuses on creativity and playmaking. This style has proven both entertaining and effective. Two seniors with D1 college commitments lead this year’s team — attacker Bryce Wasserman and midfielder Connor Harryman. Along with fellow seniors Tim Barnhart and Scott Dickey, the up-and-coming Dragons have averaged nearly 11 goals per game. Defensively, seniors Kenny Lear, Charlie Compagnone and Cooper Green, along with another division one commit Jack Welding, keep opposing teams at bay, giving up seven goals per contest. Combined, the squads have a goal differential that ranks eighth in the entire state of Texas.

 In addition to the team’s successes so far this year, the future of Dragon Lacrosse might be even brighter as underclassmen account for more than 70 percent of the varsity roster. This number doesn’t just reflect potential — it is also indicative of the growing popularity of lacrosse throughout Southlake and North Texas.
