Each and every season, a number of Silver Lake High varsity athletes shine in their respective sports. For the boys’ lacrosse team this spring, it was no different.
The team has made it to the playoffs in three straight seasons and this time around, they finished the year at 15-5 after falling in overtime to Natick in the first round of the MIAA Division 1 South boys’ tournament. Even so, the team had a number of standout performers who received all-league honors. That said, here is a look at the boys’ lacrosse athletes who received honors within the Patriot League.
Sean Daly — This season marked the third and final time Daly received the honor of being named a Patriot League All-Star. A go-to scorer for the team over the past four seasons, Daly netted well over 200 goals during his Lakers career. Daly was the only senior to get the nod this spring. He is committed to play lacrosse in college for the Division II Franklin Pierce Ravens.
Mikey Masterpolo — This marks the second time the junior goalkeeper has earned recognition as a Patriot League All-Star; this time around, he and the Lakers stout defense surrendered just 6.85 goals per game.
Matt Dole — A repeat Patriot League All-Star, the junior faceoff man and midfielder helped the team gain possession and was a contributor on the attack.
Drew Nugent — A first time Patriot League All-Star, the attackman played a crucial role in the team averaging 13.4 goals per game this past season.
Senior captains Dave Marani, a defenseman, and Brendan Dean, who played on the attack, both received recognition as well; Marani was the team’s scholar athlete while Dean received the sportsmanship award.
With three Patriot League All-Stars set to return next season, surely the Lakers are in a position where they can enjoy success yet again in 2020.
