BERLIN- Worcester Prep’s boys’ varsity lacrosse team last week beat Salisbury School, 13-3, to win the Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference (ESIAC) championship, then fell to Calverton, 18-6, in the Maryland Independent Lacrosse League (MILL) semifinals.
Worcester played concurrently in two private prep school leagues this year including the old ESIAC and the MILL, which is joined for the first time this season. Throughout the season, the Mallards faced teams in both conferences, or in some cases, teams that also competed in both. As a result, the Mallards were on parallel tracks for both conference championships and each came to a head on successive days last week.
On Tuesday, the Mallards defeated Salisbury School, 13-3, to claim the ESIAC championship. The win was the third for Worcester over the Mallards this season. On Wednesday, Worcester fell to Calverton, 18-6, in the MILL semifinals. Calverton, located in Southern Maryland, ultimately went on the win the MILL championship.
