Hot Start for Nipmuc Boys Lacrosse

The Nipmuc boys' lacrosse team is out to a 6-2 start to begin the season, and head coach Eric Brocket is pleased with the balance his squad has shown on both ends of the field. "We have a fairly big group of seniors that are the core of the team," Brockett said. "We feel we should be competing for and potentially winning the district, the goals are the same as last year. We want to win the league, but the goal is the district, so we will see how far we can take it."
The Warriors lost to Grafton in last year's district final, but return nine seniors who are in this season's starting lineup. Nipmuc is also testing itself with the regular season schedule, adding the likes of St. John High School of Shrewsbury, Algonquin, Littleton, and Hamilton-Wenham. "Those are all top teams," Brockett said," but we are playing those games because we want to be playoff ready."
Senior goaltender Alex Chu is a captain this spring and Brocket calls him one of, if not the best, goalie in Central Massachusetts. Also anchoring the defense is a quartet of
long poles, including seniors J.T. Harrt, Noah Tolliver, and Max Robakiewicz, along with junior Tim Carey. "Those four are excellent," Brockett said, "so we have a very good defense."
The midfield is another position of strength. Senior captain Conor Morford teams up in that part of the field with fellow senior George Morrice, junior Colby Hagerty, and sophomore face-off man Christian Moss. "Christian is winning the majority of our face-offs and he is dynamic on offense," Brockett said. "You can play him anywhere."
The attack has been sparked by senior captain Max Morrill, Cooper Offord, and Preston Dougherty. The veteran group has already scored wins over St. Johns High School in Shrewsbury and Grafton.
"We feel like our top-13 can run with just about anybody," Brockett said. "It's about staying focused and executing."
The Warriors have another round of challenging games ahead. Nipmuc will visit Algonquin on Saturday and come home to play Grafton for a second time next Tuesday.
