On Monday May 1, the Rocky Mountain Lobos lacrosse team had a conference game against Prairie View High School. Needless to say, the Lobos were able to play comfortably by the end of the game, with a total of 15 goals opposed to Prairie View’s 3.

“It was an easy game to say the least.” Replied Fossil Ridge player Ben Rugh, “Our team is very organized when we go out onto the field. We find the faults after every game and try to improve on them.”

Currently, the Lobos are number 16 in the state of Colorado. With 112 total goals, the team has improved significantly compared to previous seasons. Fossil Ridge player Zach West explains, “None of this couldn’t have happened without our new coaching staff. These guys give us the drive needed to perform like we did on Monday.”

The next home game for the Lobos lacrosse team is Saturday, May 6, against Denver East at 10am. Come out and support your local lacrosse team as the finish up their season.

Gavin played lacrosse for the Fort Collins Unified team throughout all four of his years at Fossil Ridge High School. After high school, he plans to go to a Northern Colorado college. Though Gavin intends to keep his options open and has not selected a major as of yet, he is considering going into teaching, business, and therapy. Because of his outgoing, social charisma and his ability to talk to others, careers with a lot of interaction with other people appeal to him. This is Gavin's first year on Etched in Stone.
