There’s a new dog in the pound: it’s the RHS lacrosse team.

There will only be a junior varsity team for the next two years but the sport is already becoming popular around the school and 28 players have joined  the team.

Athletic director, Mr Graziano, said, “The eighth graders when they get to the high school next year will have played for the youth program for three years.”

You might have noticed how a lot of the lacrosse players are walking around with pink Mohawks.  The idea for the hairstyles and color  came from sophomores Joey Reardon and Alec Donegan.

Alec Donegan says this “represents the intensity we are going to show on the field this year; plus it shows the pride we have for our new lacrosse brothers…lax brahs.”
