South Lakes Lacrosse Earns Spot in State Tournament

J.C. Sipher scored five goals on Thursday to lead the South Lakes boys lacrosse team to a 10-4 regional quarterfinal victory over Centreville and seal a spot in the Virginia 6A state tournament.

The win was the 14th straight for the Seahawks (15-1), who are enjoying a historic run. The team has not lost since March 31, and in the last two weeks won its first Liberty Conference title, its first Northern Regional games, and now, a place at states.

First the Seahawks must play two more regional games, however. The way Virginia High School League brackets are set up, the top four teams in the region earn spots in the state tournament, which will be held June 6-11.

South Lakes next plays Woodson (which beat Langley on Thursday) at home on May 25, 7 p.m. The regional finals will be May 31 at the highest seed’s school. Robinson and Madison will play in the other Northern Region semifinal

Thursday’s game started out close, with the game tied at 1-1 in the first quarter. South Lakes then scored five straight and held the Wildcats scoreless until late in the third quarter to lead 7-3 by the end of the third.

South Lakes’ Nate Campbell also scored twice for the Seahawks. Goalie John Hughes had eight saves.
