Lacrosse

Collin Schott ‘22 outscored Asheville School by himself Monday and got plenty of help in the first win of the season for Christ School JV Lacrosse.

Head coach Patrick Davis called a 13-4 road win the team’s “first real complete game of the season.”

The Greenies (1-4) led wire-to-wire with Collin finishing the afternoon with eight goals. Coach Davis also credited the play of goalkeeper Noah Wood ‘25 for the breakthrough victory.

Christ School will wrap up its season with a 5 p.m. game May 5 at Rabun Gap (Ga.).

Starting pitcher Luka Rose ‘25 and Matthew Hammel ‘23 had two hits apiece. Zachary Shuler ‘25 drove in two runs. Ben, Riley Shuler ‘25, and Wilkes Thomas ‘24 each had one RBI.
