Big SHOUT OUT to the AHS students and fans who rallied to support Varsity boys LAX Friday night!  You made a difference!  It was an outstanding victory over the Regis Raiders Friday night with a final score of 8-7 in the last minute of the game.  Bravo to our boys who came out with a winning attitude and played as a team to the bitter end.  We all felt the strength of our Warrior spirit on and off the field.   Game MVP Dylan Calkins dominated!  Dylan had 5 fourth quarter saves to help clinch the win.   Dylan and our defensemen held the Raiders to only seven goals!  Kudos to Brian Wilson for leading the attack with four goals!  It was a senior sweep with scoring... all 8 AHS goals scored by Wilson, Shindoll and Golding.  Get ready for more Varsity boys Lax action with home games both Wednesday and Friday nights this week.
