Saint Paul’s Lacrosse 2022 Season Preview

On Saturday, Saint Paul’s lacrosse will play in their second pre-season tournament of the 2021-2022 season. It will be their second meeting with Captain Shreve and Catholic High. In the first two meetings, the Wolves beat Captain Shreve but lost to Catholic High by two goals. The Wolves expect to have a different outcome against Catholic as the team has been working hard with 3-4 practices a week. They will travel to Broussard, Louisiana, for the cold weathered tournament.
Although Saint Paul’s plays their first games of 2022 this weekend, the 2022 season’s official start is February 10th, when they take on Chaos Lacrosse Club in Hunter Stadium. The team looks good, as the offense moves fast and smoothly, making it one of the best groups in the state. They are highlighted by Senior attackmen Sergio Romero as Sergio was the team’s leading scorer last year, scoring at least two goals in every game. Competing with this offense four days a week, the defense also looks skillful with many physical players, including the two big-hitting defensive midfielders in Jake Sanchez and Marco Vargas. After losing every defensive starter last year, the Wolves looked to be strung out this year, but they have worked hard making sure to not skip a beat. Another point to watch with this team is at the face-off X as both Marco Vargas and Trevor Flood look to be a promising duo to give the Wolves an edge. Last year the Wolves struggled, but with the addition of Flood and the return of Vargas, those struggles will be far less.
Overall, Saint Paul’s lacrosse is looking like a potential state championship team as many of last year’s younger players have made significant jumps. Leyton Smith, Trevor Flood, Sergio Romero, and even sophomore Matt Gower have the offense firing on all cylinders. 2022 will be an exciting year for the Wolves.
