With much anticipation and excitement after a long awaited start to spring sports, the Norwin Boys Lacrosse team wastes no time to get back into action after almost 700 days since the last game. 

   The Knights have faced off against Peters Township, Pittsburgh Central Catholic and Franklin Regional and currently have a record of 1-2. 

    “Our first few games obviously didn’t go as planned but I saw a lot of positives come out of them,” said senior Cory Johnson. “They weren’t games we should have lost but the teams we played had 4-5 games in before us which makes a huge difference. We had some really good practices to go and fix some things so things are looking good going into the following weeks.”

    The boys have faced their fair share of obstacles with this season regarding COVID-19, including being put in quarantine about a week into the season. 

    “We missed out on 2 scrimmages and our first game due to Covid so that really impacted us going into our first 2 games,” said Johnson. 

   Their next game is Friday, April 16 on home turf against Fox Chapel.

    “As a senior, I’m excited to see what we can do. We are down a few players and don’t have many subs, but us seniors have been playing together since 5th-6th grade so we have a lot to prove, especially after missing the 2020 season.” said Johnson
