The Woodford County High School boys' lacrosse team's season came to an end on Thursday, May 10 in a 16-4 loss to Lexington Catholic. The Knights took a 5-0 lead into the second quarter and led 12-1 at halftime. The Jackets struggled to win possession of the ball most of the night.

WCHS senior Brody McCoun and sophomore Nick Crowe both scored a pair of goals, and each added an assist. Junior Everett Thompson led the Jackets in fielding with seven ground balls. Freshman goaltender Bryan Birch made 16 saves.

“This team has done a complete 180 turnaround from last year,” said WCHS Coach Jeff Faulkner. “They play smarter, faster and together, and I am so proud of them. The seniors are proud of being part of the team's most successful season to date, and we have some young talent coming in and will look forward to making more strides next year. Anytime your team is improving, you are doing something right and we can't be more excited for next season.”
