Boys Big Walnut Lacrosse team’s schedule and roster
Varsity will play 15 games with the opening game this Friday March 31st away versus Johnstown. After four straight away games to open the season, our first home game is April 11th versus Olentangy Liberty. We have seven conference games with the first conference contest Thursday 4/6 vs Westerville Nortth. Senior Night will be Friday May 5th vs Marysville.
Due to the less-than-ideal student-athlete numbers, we will be playing a limited Junior Varsity schedule of seven games.
We have a final roster of 33 student athletes including 8 Seniors, 5 Juniors, 9 Sophomores and 11 Freshman. The good news is we have 13 returning letterwinners including 65% of our 2016 offensive scoring. Key returning players include Campbell Allen (Senior, Attack, Captain and 2016 leading scorer), Seth Daniels (Senior, Attack, Captain), Josh Hageman (Sophomore, Goalie, Captain), Tanner Daniels (Junior, Defense), and Midfielders: Nathan Montgomery (Soph), Tyler Vojtush (Sr), Michael Murphy (Sr) and Nate McVeigh (Jr). Isaac Swartz (Sr), who is returning after sitting out the 2016 season, will help anchor our Defense.
With 1/3 of our roster being Freshman and another 4 first year players, our depth is limited. Several key Sophomores and Freshmen including Judah Lozano (Soph, Attack), Joe Blubaugh (Freshman, Attack), Sam Metzger (Freshman, Midfielder) and Clark Jaeger (Freshman, Midfielder) will be asked to play significant minutes at the Varsity level.
