There may have been a break in the schedule, but that hasn’t stopped the current 7-game win streak by the Bishop Moore men’s lacrosse team (9-3, 5-0). With just two games in the last 15 days, the Hornets haven’t suffered a loss in 28 days and counting.
They sandwiched the Spring Break schedule with victories over Hagerty High School (17-7) and The First Academy (20-3). Throughout the win streak the Hornets have been playing remarkable team lacrosse, outscoring opponents 121-22. Just five regular season games remain before the district tournament takes place in mid-April. The Hornets are expected to enter with the #1 seed.
