It was an ankle breaker for the Xaverian Lacrosse team, which had a stellar season, ending in acing the city title. Behind the plays and assisting in the win was net goalie Paul Schwarz (’15) and Andrew Lauro. The team attacked Cardinal Hayes 5–3 to cop the New York City B Lacrosse Championship.

James Vega excelled throughout, assisting on three of the Clippers’ goals. The victory capped a 6–2 season for a team that relied heavily on its ability to keep its opponents off the scoreboard.

Coach Thomas Gonzalez bragged to Standing O:

“We really built the team around a strong defense,” said the 1992 Xaverian alum. “The boys had key wins during the year against tough division rivals like Loughlin and Xavier, and were able to build momentum for the playoffs.”

In addition to Schwarz and Lauro, who represented the CHSAA in the Mayor’s Cup All Star Challenge, Christian Bono (’15), Brian Santanelli (’15), Jay Stauble (’15), Alex Konyk and James Vega were named First Team All-CHSAA. John Harte, Michael Beale (’15), Thomas Gonzalez Jr. (’16), Andrew Gallagher (’15), and Lou Springer (’15) earned second-team honors.

Xaverian High School [7100 Shore Rd. at 71st Street in Bay Ridge, (718) 836–7100].
