The Eagle High boys’ lacrosse team has started their spring season and practices are underway. This team is excited to start playing games and, hopefully, taking home the state title again this year.

Senior Austin Seeley is a four-year member and defensive player from last season and one of seven seniors on the team this season. There are 26 members total on the varsity team this year. Most players are lower-classmen and part of the JV team.

“Tryouts went very well, and I am excited to see what this team will do this year,” Seeley said.

“A huge accomplishment that the lacrosse team has achieved is winning two state titles, with our newest [title] added last year,” Seeley said.

The first time Eagle High won the state title was in 2019, and the second time was last season in 2022. Though boys’ lacrosse is not a sanctioned sport in the state of Idaho, it is a club sport meaning the team is run and paid for by the team members.

“The main goal for the season is to run it back-to-back and win another state championship. This year, we have a few big competitors: Mountain View, Timberline and Boise,” Seeley said.

Lacrosse is a challenging sport, but the Eagle High boys’ lacrosse team makes it look easy. Known as the fastest sport on two feet because of how quickly the ball is moved around the field. Players can also stick and body-check one another. It is a fast and exciting sport to watch and play. Students should plan to start supporting these players on Feb. 28 at their first game, which is an away game against Mountain View High.
