(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – As Mustangs return from spring break, the LRHS lacrosse teams finish a hard week.

Over the course of the past week, both the boys varsity and girls junior varsity (JV) teams have been quarantined due to sick players and exposure.

The earliest the teams can conduct practices is the week of April 5, and games after that point are still undetermined.

The only game to report for lacrosse around the Ranch over the past week was the girls’ varsity team.

Unfortunately, they lost against Riverview on Wednesday night with a score of 8-12.

Senior Erika Lyvers said, “We have taken a few hard hits recently, but I think if we keep training hard and stay safe, we can come out the gates and take home some victories next week.”

Due to COVID-19 exposure, the boys’ JV team has cancelled their Friday night game against Gulf Coast and their Saturday morning game against Venice.

JV player sophomore Landon Llamas said, “Luckily, none of us have gotten sick so hopefully when our players can return to practice we can jump right back into practices and get ready for our last game.”

Game cancellations due to COVID-19 will not be rescheduled.

The girls’ varsity team is currently staying safe, hoping to finish off their season with no complications.

Though a few girls have gone into quarantine, the team is still practicing and preparing for their game next Tuesday, March 30, at 7 p.m. against Out-of-Door Academy (ODA).
