The Georgetown Prep lacrosse team began its season with a trip to Baltimore on March 3 to scrimmage Calvert Hall and Haverford (Pa.) — the top two teams in ESPN’s national preseason rankings. With a lineup full of first-time varsity contributors, the Little Hoyas took their lumps that day.
“We got absolutely crushed in all aspects of the field,” said senior Kyle Shanahan, one of two returning starters off last season’s Interstate Athletic Conference champion squad. “We definitely showed we were a young team. We weren’t running the offense, weren’t meshing right.”
Georgetown Prep graduated 21 seniors, including All-Met Player of the Year Bobby Gribbin, but as usual, the North Bethesda power had plenty of talent ready to step in. Nearly a month after their rough start, the group continues to round into form. Even with a 7-6 double overtime loss on Tuesday against defending MIAA A conference champ Gilman, the Little Hoyas (6-1) open up on top of The Post’s Top 10.
