Boys JV Team Wins in Round One of Playoffs

Round One of the Classic 8 JV playoffs started on Wednesday night and Kenosha took on a very good Marquette High School JV Navy team.  Kenosha took the early lead but Marquette would not go away or make it easy.  In the end it was a nail biter with Marquette coming on strong in the second half, but Kenosha was able to hang on for the 8-7 win and move on to the second round on Friday night against Elkhorn.  In the end the difference were the possessions Kenosha was able to gain on the face-offs by Kane Palmer, the very good goal tending by Patrick Stalman and timely goals when they were needed.  In the end the Raptors got 3 goals each from Gavin Gutman and Ashton Valentine and 2 from Sebastian West.

Would you like to try lacrosse?

If you are new to the sport and would like to give it a try, give us a call to set up a date to come to one of our practices for a 1 week trial.  We will be getting together once a week all summer and again in the fall/winter for a practice each week at the Kenosha Boys & Girls Club.  This is a great way to find out what the sport is like. 

After you try lacrosse, if you like it, you can register to continue for the rest of the winter, learn the game and get ready to play in the spring.

Raptor Families,

 

As you know, Coach Gene, was a beloved father, coach, and mentor to many within our organization. He will be greatly missed on the lacrosse fields for years to come. Adrienne and Aubrey have designed this shirt in honor of their dad; Coach Gene. He was known for yelling on the fields, “Get those ground balls, Raptors!”

The Raptors Organization has partnered with the Smith family to create these shirts in Coach Gene’s honor and memory.

$5 of each shirt sold will be donated back to the Smith family.

The store will close on Sunday, June 30th, at 11:59 pm.

     Stand 5-7 yards away from the wall
     Perform this routine at least 4-5 times per week
     Each routine should be at least 20 minutes in length- if you finish all drills in less than 20 minutes, repeat drills starting with the drill that challenged you the most.
