It is our hope that each player can carry their love of the sport with them and always strive to reach their highest potential, both on and off the field.
2013 Season Recap
The Orangemen had about as good of summer as you can have in the Summer of 2013. After a great week of training camp led by OES coach Dennis Sullivan the boys were ready for the big trip. Coach Jack and Coach Tillson led the team to a 10 day trip to the Bay Area. The trip opened up with the West Coast Showcase tournament in Morgan Hill where the Orangemen steam rolled through the U-17 bracket with out a loss and eventual being named tournament champions. Over the next 5 days the Orangemen would tour four different colleges in the area(Santa Clara, Stanford University, UC Santa Cruz, and Dominican University) hoping to learn more about what types of schools would best fit their academic needs in the upcoming years. They would also have two successful Play Datevictories over All West Lacrosse and Booth Lacrosse. The amazing trip would be capped off at the Adrenaline Shootout where the Orangemen’s winning ways continued. The Orangemen would go undefeated and would win the High School bracket and be crowned Shootout Champions. The Orangemen would end the trip with a 14-0 record.
