Seahawks Sweep Two In Holiday Tourney

BERLIN- Stephen Decatur’s boys’ varsity lacrosse team rebounded from its first setbacks of the season with a sweep in a holiday tournament in Anne Arundel County last weekend.

The Seahawks started the season with a perfect 5-0 mark before heading into the typically tough stretch against Bayside North opponents. Decatur took its first loss of the season on April 12 on the road against Queen Anne’s, followed by a 9-5 loss at home to old rival Kent Island last Monday.

However, the Seahawks found their winning stride again last weekend at a spring break tournament at North County High School in Anne Arundel. The Decatur boys beat host North County, 10-5, in its opener last Saturday, followed by a 16-12 win over Old Mill in its second game of the tournament.

With the pair of tournament wins, the Seahawks improved to 7-2 on the season. Decatur faces Wicomico on the road on Friday, followed by a non-conference home game against Dover on Monday in a game made up from a postponement back on March 21. The Seahawks will close out the regular season with a road game against Bennett and a home game against Parkside.
