Senior night, the boys varsity lacrosse team is ready to win to get momentum before the postseason starts, but it didn’t go to plan.

The south boys varsity lacrosse team has had a very difficult season this year, starting off with tough loss after tough loss, but finally started to pick up steam at the end of the year, and senior Tommy Rabaut has been a big part in helping the team get better and get them to where they are.

“Not how I thought we would end our regular season going into the playoffs,” Rabuat said. “ To lose 15-13 to a Rochester Adams team that wasn’t all that good will give us a chip on our shoulder going into this postseason, and show that this team means business and has something to prove,” Rabaut said.

Varsity Lacrosse has had its ups and downs during this regular season, but they started to pick up some momentum after beating cross-town rival North and MAC competition Dakota, both in the MAC tournament. They faced a tough loss at home on senior night to get rid of a little of that momentum.

It was more important to that team to just forget about that loss, because everyone has the same record going into the playoffs, 0-0.

Senior Juan Tischbein is on his last ride for lacrosse, so he doesn’t want this season to end just yet.

“Our record doesn’t matter going into the playoffs,” Tischbein said. “It’s important that we just move on from this game and get ready for De la Salle,” Tischbein said.

South will match up against De La Salle in the first round of the playoffs, and if they win that game, they will go and face the winner of Grosse Pointe North and Cranbrook. South beat North twice in the regular season, once in the Mac tournament, and another time at North for a regular season game. South did not play Cranbrook, and the last time they played them was a couple of years ago in the playoffs, when they ended their season early.

Assistant coach Sam Cielieska graduated from South 3 years ago, and he still remembers when his team lost in his senior season

“I still remember playing in that game, and that game hurt” Cielieska said. “We were ready all year for a deep run and they went and killed that dream early. I hope that we beat De La Salle, then beat up on them for revenge.”

If South were to beat De La Salle, they would then most likely play Cranbrook, then if they win that game, they would go play the winner of the University of Detroit Jesuit and Devine Child.
