Nolan Foley, Reporter

Entering the 2016 season the Wantagh lacrosse team had a busy schedule in lead up to what looks to be a prosperous season. The team started the journey in a non-league game against Seaford where the team won 13-7. The Warriors non-league schedule included a five-day trip to Colorado over Easter break where they played 2 games against Cherry Creek and the Air Academy. Cherry Creek, who’s ranked No. 1 on the West Coast by Nike, beat the Warriors 13-5 but the team bounced back for a dominating 22-15 win over the Air Academy.

When the team returned home they were visited by Servite High School who came all the way from Anaheim California and the Warriors beat them easily in a 14-4 rout. Mamaroneck then came to Wantagh and beat the Warriors in a thriller where they tied the game with 9 seconds left and then won in overtime 11-10. The team will also switch conferences and will not play rival Garden City in regular season play.
