Martin Luther King High School (King) will inaugurate a new Lacrosse team in February. Lacrosse is a sport played between two teams using a lacrosse stick and a lacrosse ball. Players use the head of the lacrosse stick to carry, pass, and catch the ball and score by shooting the ball into the opponent’s goal. The King football field will even be modified before every game with Lacrosse lines painted in blue. King’s Lacrosse teams will be separated into two: junior varsity (jv) and a varsity team. Both teams will be coached by Chris Kostka with assistant coaches Rafe Janikowski, Joe Sanchez, and Chris Goodite. “It’s cool because it’s like starting a new legacy and that one day I can tell my kids that when they play Lacrosse I was the first youth and high school team,” enthused Zachary Goodsite (9) who was one of 78 trying out for the team. Tryouts were held on Wednesday, November 8. The team’s first game will be played on Monday, February 27, 2018 at home in the King football stadium.
