 As Lacrosse tryouts begin next week, senior attacking star captain Connor Mullen is aiming for a long season with his teammates. With the season dawning upon us in a few short days Connor gives us a view of what he expects from himself and his team this season.

In a FaceTime interview Connor said, “I expect us to win sections and be competitors in state.” This will not be easy because TGBL is in the Northwest Suburban conference which consists of schools such as Blaine, Champlin, and Maple Grove.  When asked about the conference Connor said, “It will be hard playing with the bigger schools.”Connor believes they will have a better shot this year because he strongly believes this years team has great potential.

Connor is an outstanding attack player; He has been playing Lacrosse for eight years. Last year Connor scored 20+ goals, leading the team, receiving the Eagle award, and being named offensive player of the year.This year being his first year as a captain he wants to be a supportive, positive leader not just a captain that barks orders around. Connor’s goal is to be the best he can be for his team so they can have a long season.

This will not be Connor’s last year of Lacrosse as he is taking his talents to Collegeville to play for St. Johns next year with co captains Haden Lacy and Sam Ruzynski.
