Cooper City High School’s Lacrosse club won the district championship this season, going from worst to first in only their second season.
After only winning one game last year, the Cowboys won nine games this year and with their 8-7 victory over the Western High Wildcats, the Cowboys went from being the worst team in the district to district champs.
“Winning the district championship was amazing, indescribable, and a once in a lifetime moment,” Senior Brandon Monella said.
This achievement was not easy. Some players that stepped up to the challenge include Seniors Monella, Hunter Wild, and Landon Goldman, along with Juniors Matt Margol, and Brandon Perlman. To accomplish a feat such as winning a district championship, a team must not only play well, but must have team chemistry.
“We had a great team that worked well together,” Goldman said. “With all the skills we gained, we were able to be successful.”
Entering this season, the team worked hard to make changes in the system. With strong coaching, better teamwork, and overall better play, the team improved dramatically. The stronger level of discipline and teamwork led to their success. As the wins began to stack up, the team became more confident and that carried through to the championship.
With only a few seniors leaving, the younger players are ready and eager to take their place and keep the momentum going.
“We will continue to get better and try to repeat winning districts, Margol said. “Then go on and try to win at regionals and states.”
