For only the second time in Jamestown’s history, lacrosse is available for students to play this spring season.

In late February, students tried out for varsity club lacrosse, considered a club sport because it is not officially recognized by the Virginia High School League as a registered sports team.

With the number of players who came out, JHS is able to field a varsity and junior varsity team, coached by Todd Vischer and Ryan McKinley. The team practices at the Warhill Sports Complex almost every day after school.

Jamestown is not the only school in the area to gain lacrosse. Lafayette and Warhill are both fielding teams, while Bruton will be send it’s two lacrosse players to Jamestown’s team. The Eagles will not only play Warhill and Lafayette, but other schools in the Bay Rivers area, just like any other school team would.

Coach Vischer has given students the opportunity to try something completely new. “I’ve never played lacrosse before this, so I’m glad Jamestown brought it so I could give it a try,” said senior Hunter Freeman.

Other students have played lacrosse for a long time, and now can officially play it as an organized school activity. “I’ve played lacrosse all my life, mainly for the Williamsburg Warriors,” junior Connor Starr said, “but now I’m glad I get to play it for my school, and with other players from my school.”

As the sport of lacrosse continues to expand its popularity, it is no surprise that Jamestown will be able to play teams from all over the state, including those whom we would normally play in Division 4A. The only question is, as time continues, will lacrosse remain only a club? Or will it break into the VHSL and become a fully state-recognized sport.
