Pentucket boys lacrosse opens season today at Hamilton-Wenham

(Continued)

“It’s an ongoing trial right now to see who gives us the best chance to win on a given day,” Leary said.

Ultimately, Leary said his main goal for the season is to improve as the season goes along, and ideally the team will compete for the league championship and get back to the state tournament.

“For us, our biggest goal is to get better every day and hopefully by the end of the season we’re playing our best lacrosse,” Leary said. “I want us to be extremely competitive in our league, and after that we’ll see how it goes.”

The first test for Pentucket will be Hamilton-Wenham, whom the Sachems will face on the road today at 4 p.m. Hamilton-Wenham is already 0-2 on the season following losses to Cohasset (14-3) and Beverly (6-5 in double overtime), and Leary said how his team fares against the Generals will be a good indicator of what they’ll need to work on going forward.

“That’s a program that we can measure ourselves against, so for us it will be a good test to see where we are,” Leary said.
