The Montclair Kimberley Academy Boys’ Lacrosse team made history this past weekend when they clenched the title of NJSIAA Non-Public State Lacrosse Champion with a win over Pingry; a worthy opponent who beat MKA earlier in the season 11-5. Junior Mark Phillips and senior Kyle Morris both contributed three goals for MKA. Matt Lane scored two goals and dished out two assists with Cameron Brazill scoring one goal and contributing two assists as well. On the defensive end, senior keeper Craig Schweitzer had ten saves to secure the win. The boys have had an outstanding season thus far with a record of 17-4, and continue their season as they advance to play in the Tournament of Champions where they will compete against the five other Group State Champions.
Head Coach Paul Edwards has been leading the MKA lacrosse team for nine years and was selected Rizk Division Coach of the Year in 2007. Edwards believes in a strong program that is not just about wins and losses, but focuses on a strong team bond and provides each player with the opportunity to improve individual skills; a strategy that has proved to serve the team well both on and off the field.
We at www.espor.com wish the Montclair Kimberley Academy Boys’ Lacrosse team good luck in the Tournament of Champions! The better MKA Lacrosse gets, the better we get.
