The O’Fallon Boys Varsity Lacrosse Team recently hit the road for a few games.

The Panthers started on Friday and played a strong Jordan High School team from North Carolina.  The Panthers played hard, but lost their first game of the season.  

The boys bounced back nicely Saturday morning defeating Christian Presbyterian Academy (CPA), a high school team from Tennessee, in a close game that ended 15-12.

Finally, the Panther’s played Franklin High School, another local team, in the afternoon and came up short with a close 10-14 loss.  The Panthers are 6 and 2 on the season and have a home stand this week with games against Rockwood Summit and St. Mary’s.

On Saturday, April 6, at 5  p.m. at the O’Fallon High School Turf Field, the Boys and Girls Lacrosse programs will be teaming up to play the annual Boys vs. Girls charity game to honor a beloved coach, husband, father and friend. The kids will be playing in memory of the O’Fallon Boys Lacrosse Coach Terry Williamson who passed away last year from cancer.  Terry enjoyed coaching and mentoring the youth of O’Fallon. His selfless involvement has left a lasting impact on the local community.
