Battling Through Adversity

By Gabi Peoples, senior

This year’s Beaverton Boys’ Lacrosse team has done an amazing job embracing adversity. They started off this season coming off taking first in Metro and winning a state championship in their 2016 season with 11 returning seniors. But, unfortunately, five of them are injured, leaving the underclassman and junior varsity players to step up to help make the team the best they can be.


As of right now, the boys are 2-3 in preseason, getting ready and amped up to take on Metro League. The boys are very excited to compete and hopefully find their mojo to take another league title.


Nate Johnnie, a returning senior and varsity captain who also happened to tear his ACL and meniscus shared that, “The boys are grinding every day and getting better. We are hoping to have another amazing season and finish strong. It’s been a struggle starting off the season injured but I’ve been working hard and am already ahead of the game on my recovery. Hopefully I will get to play a few games at the end of the season with my boys and get ready to carry on my lacrosse career at York in the fall.”

The BHS student body very excited to watch, support and be a part of the lacrosse journey this season. They inspire us every day to embrace adversity and keep pushing and to be better every day! Keep up the hard work, boys!
