From Winless to one win away

(Continued)

But the fact that Pentucket seems almost assured to make the post season for 2013 after having recorded not a single victory last year is something these Sachems can be excited about.

“For us, it all starts with the kids that we have,” said Leary. “We had a lot of kids coming back (from last year), we only lost a handful of guys. And the guys who came back came back with the attitude that they wanted to get better. They are not just out here to play a spring sport, they are out here to compete and to win.”

Leary says he is happy his team is comprised of plenty of lacrosse-first guys, but he also values the three-sport athletes that come out to play as well. One of those three sport athletes is Wiles, who also plays football and basketball but considers himself a lacrosse-first guy and will be playing lacrosse at Union College next year.

“I think we’ve just been playing a little bit harder, coming out to win.” Wiles said. “Last year, we just really weren’t into it.”
