Congratulations to A.J. Neal, Dante Campudoni, and Hunter Becker! They will continue a proud tradition of excellence and academics in college. Congratulations men - your team is obviously so proud of you!
Congratulations Varsity Raiders on last week's win over OP and JV Raiders for double victories against OP and Handley! Next up - Match up against Patriot @Home on Wednesday, 4/26
Incredibly proud of SJ alumnus Midshipman Luke Goodson! You are inspiration to your former teammates and forever friends!
Thank you Coach Alberici of Army Black Knights for hanging with our Raiders - Past, Present and Future!
I hope everyone is enjoying their Spring Break so far (now that it's almost over)
Just a reminder that we only have one game next week. It's the game v. OPHS - with the fundraiser for the Officer Down Foundation
I've attached a picture of the shirt -- I believe it turned out great! OPHS has already raised ~ $600 with the pre-order sales alone! They will have extra shirts at the game for sale if you decide you need one after all.
OPHS will also be having a bake sale with proceeds going to the ODF. If anyone would like to contribute something to the bake sale, please let Nancy or myself know.
Thank you again for your support and we'll see you Wednesday!!
Dear JV Players and Parents
Coaches Allen and Verilli will be holding two practices for JV players over spring break. They will be Monday and Tuesday from 2:30 - 4:30. I encourage all JV boys to attend to keep your stick skills fresh and be that much more prepared for district games after spring break.
See you all soon.
Coach Adam Ward
Last year SJHS Boys Lacrosse did a fundraiser for the Officer Down Foundation which we held on our Senior Night against OP. Here is the jist of how it worked:
Coach Ward designed a logo to include both SJHS and OP and we had t-shirts printed with the design. We then sold the shirts for $25 each and ALL profits from the t-shirt sales went to the Officer Down Foundation. OP was great about joining in and had parents buy shirts as well.
I'm proud to let you know that OP has decided they want to do that this year as well! My friend Nancy and I have decided to keep this a tradition between our schools as long as we both can! With our game being at OP this year, they have designed the logo and will take care of all shirt orders.
Our games against OP are on April 19th (which was moved up from a later date). With having moved the date up and throwing Spring Break in the mix - Nancy informed me today that they need ALL orders in by Sunday April 9. The t-shirts are again $25 will ALL proceeds will go directly to the ODF.
Click HERE for an order form and either email back to me or DIRECTLY to Nancy at email@example.com or you can call 703-851-8506 (OPHS). Checks are made payable to: OPHS ABC and payment will be due at the game when you pick up your shirts. Please consider buying a t-shirt to support this very worthy cause! Remember you can change into it at the game that night :)

Thank you for your support!
