The SVSJ takes a look at Mount Si High School’s lacrosse program this spring

We haven’t had an opportunity yet to talk about lacrosse this spring, so let’s take a look at how things are going for Mount Si’s growing lacrosse program.

The school program, which has had a varsity boys’ team for several years now, this season has a high school girls’ team. That club is competing as a junior varsity team, with it being likely in the future they’ll end up in a varsity capacity. Things seem to be going well for the ladies, who are participating within the Washington Schoolgirls’ Lacrosse Association. The team is 3-5 on the season, with their most recent game, against Evergreen High School’s junior varsity from Burien, being an 18-8 win. Mount Si has won two of three after a four-game losing streak. Leading the team in scoring is Hannah Buzard, with 16 goals on the spring. Samantha Smith (11 goals, four assists) and Abigail Mason (13 goals, one assist) also have been key offensive presences for the Wildcats.

Goalkeepers Esther Litwack-Lang and Sydney Lee have split the duties in that position this spring, with both players recording wins. The team is coached by Dave Buzard.

The boys’ varsity team also has a new coach this season – Brian Rinckenberger takes over for Chris Castleberry, and the team continues to struggle as a Division I team. Mount Si is 2-6 in league, 2-9 overall, playing in the Kingco Conference. The Wildcats hosted Skyline this past Saturday night up at the new Jeanne Hansen Park on Snoqualmie Ridge and were blown out by the Spartans 19-2. Benjamin Lomas (11 goals, six assists) and Mason Maddux (11 goals, three assists) are the scoring leaders for Mount Si on the spring, and Jimmy Morris (eight goals, three assists) and Carter McFadden (six goals, nine assists) have also provided solid contributions for the Wildcats.

In goal, Robb Rainey and Lucas Mahrer have split duties there, with Rainey winning both of the games scarlet and gray has recorded wins in.

Mount Si’s boys have two more home games – this Wednesday night against Liberty at 8:00 p.m., and then close out their home schedule Saturday night against Eastlake, with a start time of 7:00 p.m. Both games are at Mount Si High School. As for the girls, their next two games are on the road, and their next home game is May 7, against Bellevue, with a start time of 5:30 p.m., also at MSHS.
