Instead, the Belmont High School girls' lacrosse team headed down to the State House in Concord for the Best Buddies Friendship Walk and 5K. The Friendship Walk plays a fundamental role in funding state programs which provide one-to-one friendships, leadership development and integrated job opportunities for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
The girls donated their time, money, and spirit at the New Hampshire Best Buddies fundraiser in Concord. The team helped raise $1,200 for the charity and comprised more than half of the volunteers that worked the event. Because of their outstanding volunteerism, the event was a great success and raised a total of $60,000 to help the Best Buddies Organization.

Defensively, Jesse Goupil, Nate Papavlo, and Zach Gray put in a solid effort in front of Goalie Alex Westcott, who had 11 saves. The 11-3 victory set the stage for a season ending showdown with Hampton, and an undefeated streak on the line.
Sunday's temps were a bit cooler on the coast, as the Sachems traveled south to North Hampton for their last game. McCrea and Cammack picked up right where they had left off, tallying 5 and 4 goals respectively. This time they got support from attack Karter Greenwood (goal) and middie Jack Schumacher (1st goal of the season). Attack Nick Goupil had a great game, assisting on a number of his teammates goals. Michael Crowell, Ayden Duncan, and Jacob Marshal anchored the defense and Westcott was once again stellar in net.
The 11-2 victory sealed an undefeated season and had the team pumped up for the state tournament this weekend in Londonderry.
