BERLIN- A team of ninth and tenth graders from Stephen Decatur recently completed a perfect indoor lacrosse season at the Crown Sports complex in Salisbury, adding another feather in the cap to the growing youth lacrosse movement in Worcester County.
The Ocean City Lax boys’ 9-10 grade team made up mainly of players from Decatur recently went unbeaten in its winter indoor season at Crown, becoming the second team from the local area to record a perfect season this winter. The OC Lax team steamrolled through its schedule this winter at Crown its closest margin of victory at around seven goals. In most of its contests this year, the OC Lax team won by an average margin of 12-15 goals.
Coach Ryan Kirby, who led the team along with fellow Coach Ryan Murphy, said this year’s team grew exponentially from last years. “We might have won three games last year and lost a couple of games by 15 to 18 goals,” he said. “So this year was a little more uplifting. Decatur lacrosse certainly has a solid future ahead of them.”
