On Wednesday night, 27 April, the South Lakes Seahawks Boys Varsity Lacrosse team took on the visiting Herndon Hornets.  This night represented all that is good about sports, the lasting friendships made, the hard work and dedication required, and the teamwork that is necessary for success. The annual South Lakes/Herndon game focuses more on respect for the game and less on the rivalry because the players grew up playing ogether and created lasting friendships. This game also serves as the opportunity to recognize the recipient of the Lou Peterson Award.  Mr. Peterson was the long time Commissioner of the Herndon/Reston Youth Lacrosse league and left a lasting legacy that all participants (players, family and friends) appreciate.  Junior Matthew Degutis was the South Lakes recipient of the Award which goes to the player who demonstrates sportsmanship on the field, citizenship off the field, and leadership in all endeavors.    This game also served as Senior Night.  Players recognized included Tommy Jung (attack), John Hughes (goalie), Nate Campbell (attack), Alex Nelson (defense), Mitchell Drier (middie), Spencer Kinsey-Korzym (middie), Ankur Jain (middie), Tsheetiz Tamang (goalie), and Eric Ottman (defense).  Eric Ottman was also presented with the first annual Champion Award by Head Coach Craig Lunde.  This Award is given to the player who has committed to the highest level of lacrosse play, dedication to improving his skills, while embracing the tradition and sportsmanship required for the game.  Herndon came into the game missing key players due to season ending injuries and the effect was noticeable as South Lakes jumped out to an early lead.  Junior attack man JC Sipher led all players with 4 goals.  Stevie Jones, Chris Sherbert and Justin May each had 2 goals, and Spencer Alston and Nate Campbell each notched 1 goal.  The Seahawks were able to get all players on the field during the game.
