Summer Camp Success
What a great week it’s been for our summer camp! A threatening weather forecast turned into the best weather we could have hoped for and 40 boys turned out to play at our Brook Run Park location. Expert coaching was given by our own varsity coach, MIchael Sopko, and six other college lacrosse players, including 2014 DHS graduate Alex Schlosser who now plays for Adelphi College. The camp was broken down into two sessions with 14 boys in the 3rd through 8th grade session and 26 boys in the high school session.
It was a great way to start the summer and we are very excited about the future of Dunwoody lacrosse!
Young Dunwoody Lacrosse Team Finishes Season With Convincing Win
The 4-year old, varsity, boys lacrosse team at Dunwoody High School finished the season Saturday with a 22-7 win over Lakeside Dekalb HS. Goal scorers included all of the four seniors playing in this, their last game for DHS: Kirvin Davis, Korey Lowrey, Jack Martin, and Daniel Pile.
After a rocky start, the team (which is more than 50% freshmen) has won 4 of its last 8 games.
Under the guidance of coach Michael Sopko (who joined the DHS faculty in Fall 2014), and with promising young talent feeding in from the Jr. Wildcats program at Peachtree Middle School, the program is looking forward to an even stronger showing next year.
