On March 15, the Antioch Sequoits lacrosse team hosted their first game of the season against Jacobs High School. The final score was 13-2 favoring the Sequoits, the team hopes to build off this victory and establish themselves as a viable opponent. 

The team is composed of many young athletes who play year-round lacrosse; one of which is sophomore Jack Holway. Holway plays for the travel lacrosse team Rotten Apples, out of Northbrook, and was unfortunately diagnosed with cancer in December. As his fight concluded, he rejoined athletics and is now able to play for the lacrosse team this spring and was a heavy contributor to the season opener victory. 

“The first game was very exciting. I was really nervous because it was my first game since I found out I had cancer, but the boys were loud and hyped,” Holway said. “I had four goals and one assist.”

The lacrosse team tends to attract newer players who have less experience playing the sport. On the other hand, senior Tegan Martinez has played multiple seasons for the Sequoits and helped to add on to the high-scoring game by pitching two goals and one assist.

“The game was a very fun one to play in,” Martinez said. “With it being the first one of the year there was a lot of excitement built up and winning made it a lot better.”

The Northern Lake Country Conference has been no joke for opponents, along with having strong intra-conference games. The Grayslake North Knights have been the premier team lately, but Antioch hopes to be able to turn it around in the near future.

“If we play to our full potential then I say we could finish top 3 in the conference,” sophomore Ryan Swanson said.

Come and support your Sequoits as they take on the Cary-Grove Trojans at 6 p.m. on March 23, at home.
