Senior Lane Anderson won 9-5 in the top singles spot, and played with senior Barrett Cooper to win number one doubles 9-2. The team rested many of their top varsity players, giving the upper JV players a chance to challenge themselves and improve.

Boys’ golf

To start off the season, the Boy’s golf team originally started off with 16 players. Then, after a discussion between head coach Ermanno Ritschl and assistant coach Ryan Oettmeier, the team was expanded to 20 players. The first varsity tournament of the season is April 6, at Lake Quivira Golf Club.


Track had a meet yesterday and did well, and the meet before that they won. Next meet is sometime in the near future I believe next week.


The rugby club is 0-3 so far on the season. They’ve got their next two matches tomorrow against Olathe, 0-1, and Heart of America Rugby Football Union.


The boys’ lacrosse team is off to a solid 2-1 start as they chase a fourth state title. They currently sit in fourth place in the LAKC, only a couple games behind Rockhurst, who have played six more games than the Lancers. Both the JV and Varsity teams will take on the first place Blue Valley West Jaguars on Tuesday. Led by senior John Aliber, the Lancers hope to hand the Jags their second loss of the season.
