This will be coach Shigekane's first year coaching the boy's lacrosse team. This past year, the team had its best season with a 12-4 record. The team made the state quarterfinal playoffs.
"We are a young team that will gain varsity experience as the season progresses," Shigekane said. "We will be a force to reckoned with come playoffs."
Shigekane is optimistic about the team's season but also sees room for improvement. He expects challenges with putting in a new offense and having the players gain confidence in themselves and the system.
Shigekane expressed confidence in his team and its upcoming season.
"There's lots of talent and a never-quit attitude," he said.
