Friday the 13th may not be considered the most auspicious day, but Friday, May 13 was a very special day for some graduating Saucon Valley boys lacrosse players.
The boys on the school's lacrosse team were recognized during a 7pm ceremony at Montford Illick Stadium that preceded a game against Moravian Academy.
As Saucon Valley Youth Lacrosse Vice President Pete Kowalski explained in an email, the ceremony was intended to honor the senior players, all of whom have helped lead the lacrosse program at Saucon Valley during its short Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) history.
The seniors honored at the ceremony--which was attended by parents and friends who brought banners and balloons to congratulate the players--included goalie Tyler Earle, Chris Casale, Jake Germanowski, Patrick Kowalski, Ryan McQueen, Cory Newhard and Colton Schoenberger.
As each player's name was announced from the stadium grandstand, he was escorted onto the field by a parent or parents, and information about his future plans was highlighted. Many photos were taken of the players on the field.
The team's coach is Lou Gonzalez.
