Belmont lacrosse girls' success goes beyond playing field

How does a team follow up a successful 2013 season? After posting a 9-3-1 record, one might expect a team to sit back, take it easy and reflect on their accomplishments.
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.

Laconia U11's roll into State Tourney (223)

The Laconia Sachems U11 Lacrosse team capped off an undefeated season with two victories over the weekend. Saturday saw the young Sachems playing host to Hooksett. Playing through the hottest temps of the year so far, attack Bryce McCrea and Middie Nate Cammack combined for 8 goals (5 for McCrea, 3 for Cammack) to lead their team. Middies Kyle Hinds and Demitri Zimmer each had a goal, as did attack Logan Paranto.
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.
