If you can’t find a meaningful, fun high school sports event to check out this week, well, you’re not even trying. The calendar is full as the weather may have finally turned, and athletic directors, athletes and coaches are hopeful that the April showers are out of the picture.
It’s a big week on the lacrosse field, as there is a rematch of the state championship game, as well as a battle between the other two teams to reach the state semifinals last season. On the diamond, teams are looking to lock up at least a .500 record that makes them eligible for the state tournament, and two teams that already have qualified get together for the second time this season.
