SENIOR SPOTLIGHT - Clarence Bly

We wish our seniors the VERY BEST!!! Go Raiders!!!

Senior 2020 Spotlight: Clarence Bly

Clarence was ready to take the field this year as one of the senior leaders of the Wellesley boys' lacrosse team.  Clarence took his junior season off to focus on academics but the pull of rejoining his teammates and friends on the field was so strong that he put in the time in the offseason to get himself ready for his senior spring.  Clarence has always been a savvy lacrosse player - his dodges fake out his opponents and his quick hands give him an advantage in all ground ball situations.  Clarence contributed to every team he played for and was versatile enough to play any position though he excelled as a pole (aka defender).  He's so capable, he even won face-offs with a long stick!  Clarence's warm smile and exceptional attitude made him a favorite of teammates and coaches alike.  We'll miss him next year and wish him the best at the University of New England!

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT - Jack Kenney

We wish our seniors the VERY BEST!!! Go Raiders!!!

Senior 2020 Spotlight: Jack Kenney

Jack was making his return to the Wellesley High lacrosse team this season after a brief hiatus at Island School in 2019.  It is a shame he didn't get the chance to play one more season with his teammates and friends as he would have wowed the crowds.  His expert stick skills gave headaches to opposing defenses as he snagged passes and dropped them in the back of the net before the goalie even saw him darting through the middle.  Jack's positive and supportive nature make him an ideal teammate.  Jack was also a huge part of the Wellesley Youth Lacrosse program, joining the older kids as a 2nd grader on a large field and he was always ready to give back by volunteering to help the younger kids.  Good luck next year at UVM, Jack!!

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT - Henry Gear

We wish out seniors the VERY BEST!!! Go Raiders!

Senior 2020 Spotlight: Henry Gear

Henry made such an impression in tryouts his freshman year that he made varsity his first year and was a four-year letter-winner at Wellesley High.  His impact and leadership stood out during his tenure and he was named a captain for his senior season.  Henry was mostly known for being a shifty attackman for Wellesley but he was agile enough to play middie when the team needed extra legs on the field.  He had more than his fair share of clutch goals in his career including an incredible one during a win-or-go-home comeback victory over Newton.  Henry joined the Wellesley youth program when he moved to town as a 7th grader and his impact to the program was immediate.  The team and the program will miss his dedication and his spirit both on and off the field next year.  Good luck at Trinity!!

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT - Ethan Lomes

We wish our seniors the VERY BEST! Go Raiders!

Senior 2020 Spotlight: Ethan Lomes

Ethan was another player making his return to the boys' lacrosse team this spring.  After a stellar career as a quiet but lethal defender/LSM on the Wellesley youth lacrosse teams in grade school through middle school, Ethan focused on his academics and on the ice as a major contributor to the Wellesley boys' hockey team.  Now that his future plans are set, Ethan was ready to dedicate his spring to playing lacrosse again.  The lacrosse team was ready to welcome him back with open arms and we know he would have set the standard for working hard and giving his all.  We are sorry we didn't get to see you on the lacrosse field one more time, Ethan.  Best of luck at UC San Diego!!

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT - Andrew Pini

We wish our seniors the VERY BEST!!!! Go Raiders!

Senior 2020 Spotlight: Andrew Pini

Andrew joined the Wellesley Youth lacrosse program in fifth grade as a newbie to the sport and quickly became one of the most feared defenders in the league.  He brought an energy and intensity to the field from day one and continued to make an impact on the field as a member of the varsity team.  Pini was poised to star on the defensive side of the field this season; opposing offenses would have had a tough time finding their way to the Wellesley goal thanks to Andrew's toughness and smarts.  Andrew is a multi-faceted talent who surely would have sung the National Anthem at his senior game this season.  Raider Nation will miss you next year, Pini.  Good luck at Ohio State!!

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT - Will Manning

We wish our seniors the VERY BEST! Go Raiders!!!

Senior 2020 Spotlight: Will Manning

Will is a four-year varsity player who began his Wellesley lacrosse career in 2nd grade as one of the youngest players in the Wellesley youth program.  As a HS player, he most often played offensive middie but made his way onto an attack line from time to time.  Will quietly became one of the top five scorers his freshman year and his scoring contributions grew each year after that.  The 2020 scouting report on Will would definitely have  included tactics to shut him down but it's tough to lock down a player who is a threat from the crease or the top.  In particular, it would have been interesting to see if the scouts identified his dominant hand correctly this season!  He played in a lot of memorable games for WHS, including the overtime playoff upset over Duxbury in 2018.  In addition to his playing days, Will gave back to the youth program in recent years as a coach of one of the 3rd/4th grade teams.  His booming cheer for his Raider teammates will be missed when he heads off to Syracuse University in the fall!

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT - Teddy Komjathy

Over the next week WYLC will be Spotlighting the 2020 Wellesley High School Varsity Boys Lacrosse Seniors, some are alums of the WYLC Program, others have joined in with Wellesley later in their lacrosse career. All have done an amazing job playing at WHS, and we wish them all the absolute best wherever their journey takes them next. 

GO RAIDERS!!!!

Senior 2020 Spotlight: Teddy Komjathy

Teddy is an expert face-off player who was such a threat on the field, he often remained part of the offensive mid-field while his peers raced to the sidelines.  Teddy was a three-year member of Wellesley's boys' lacrosse team and was named captain for his senior season.  Teddy is and always has been one of the most coachable athletes around - he is respectful and ruthlessly competitive at the same time.  He welcomed the input of all of his coaches which makes it no surprise that his lacrosse career is continuing.  Teddy is taking his talents to Hartford, CT in the fall and will join the Trinity College lacrosse team.  The WHS lacrosse team will not be the same without him and Raider nation will be rooting him on from afar!!

Senior Spotlight 2020: Emily Rourke

 

Hi Raiders!

I am a senior captain of the 2020 WHS varsity lacrosse team. I started playing lacrosse for the Wellesley Youth Lacrosse Program in third grade all the way up to the Select team in eighth grade. Lacrosse has been one of my favorite parts of my high school experience. I have formed friendships with teammates that go beyond the field that I will keep for many years to come. I am so grateful for the way lacrosse has created these bonds for me.

I also was lucky to have the special experience of playing alongside my sister, Lulu. She is two grades below me so we never got to play on the same youth team, but we were always looking forward to getting the chance in high school. We played defense together last year. It was really rewarding to go from backyard passing for so many years to then putting it all together on the high school field.

Next year I plan to attend Hobart and William Smith Colleges where I will be playing ice hockey and I am thinking about majoring in Education! I played for the high school hockey team for the past four years. I am so grateful for all of the memories and friendships that Wellesley High sports as a whole has brought me. I encourage all of you to try as many sports as you can at the high school!

Go Raiders!

Senior Spotlight 2020: Faith Graves

 

Hi Youth Lax Girls! I play attack for the WHS varsity lacrosse team.

My experience throughout the Wellesley Youth Lacrosse Program was the perfect balance of fun and competition. It was great to form relationships with new teammates and coaches that I still interacted with at the high school level. The flexibility of playing many positions during youth allowed me to really get a strong idea of where I played best in preparation for high school. Trying out for the Wellesley Select Lacrosse Team was very helpful because it gave me a good idea of what high school tryouts would feel like. The level was also much more fast paced and allowed me to grow as an athlete.

Playing youth translated towards my high school lacrosse years in a very positive way, because I had already strengthened my relationships with fellow players and knew who I worked well with on the field. As of now I’ll be taking a gap year and will hopefully play lacrosse in college!

Go Raiders!

Senior Spotlight 2020: Anna Hereu

 

Hi guys!

I am one of the senior captains of the WHS varsity lacrosse team. I play goalie and I started with the Wellesley Youth Lacrosse Program in 5th grade. I started out as a field player and had a great time with all my friends, but in 7th grade when it was my turn to play goalie, I decided that’s what I wanted to stick with. There was something about the excitement when I would make a save and I loved it from the moment I stepped in goal. From then on, I played for the Core (now called Select) team for 2 years as their goalie.

When I got to the high school, I made the varsity team my freshman year and had the best time of my life. I made so many friends and special connections with my coaches. I even got to start in a D1 state championship game my sophomore year and it was easily the most exciting and fun moment of my life. The lacrosse team was one of the best parts of my high school experience. I know we are all sad it had to end this way but I am so grateful that I got those 3 amazing years.

Next year I am going to Chapman University in California and may be walking on to the Division 3 lacrosse team, but if not, I will be joining their club team! I hope each one of you keeps practicing in this time off and you should all be excited about what’s to come!

Go Raiders!

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT 2020 - Bridget Noonan

Over the next week, WYLC will be showing our support to the Wellesley High School Lacrosse Seniors. These seniors decided to write a letter to the WYLC Youth to share with them how much the WYLC impacted them as a player.

We wish these seniors the VERY BEST! Go Raiders!!!!

Senior 2020 Spotlight: Bridget Noonan

 

Hi Everyone! 

I’m a senior captain on the WHS varsity lacrosse team.  My main position is middie (midfield) but I also play attack.  Playing for the Wellesley Youth Lacrosse Program gave me an opportunity to find a love for the game by having fun with my friends and overall just enjoying the sport. With this I began to put time and effort into getting better and fulfilling a dream of playing collegiate lacrosse. 

Playing on the Select team also gave me a balance of having fun with my regular team and then having a harder more focused practice following it.  I also began friendships with the grade above me that made the transition onto the high school and varsity lacrosse team really easy and exciting.  

Playing for the varsity team was one of the highlights of my high school experience. The bonds you form with your teammates make playing so much fun and the overall respect everyone has for each other pushes you to get better every practice.  The team also gives you an opportunity to make friends in all grades with people you would’ve never thought.  

Next year I will be attending and playing lacrosse for Virginia Tech. 

Go Raiders!
