You read it right, boys and girls. In a stunning upset, the amazing 2007 McCallum Lacrosse Team made team history with a first-ever win over perennial lacrosse power St. Mary's Hall on a hot afternoon at Noack Fields today. The victory advances the Knights to the District Championship game at Noack Fields Sunday, Apr. 29 at 4:30 p.m. vs. the #1 seed Austin High Maroons.
MVP of the game for the Knights was Daniel Steinman, who scored 2 goals, won seven face-offs, and led the team in ground balls with a whopping 13. The Game Ball went to goalie Wyatt Pierson, who had 10 ground balls and a season-high 20 saves, including 7 in the 4th quarter when the Knights held the Barons scoreless for the final 9 1/2 minutes to preserve their 1 goal lead.
Come out tomorrow and support this remarkable team as they take on their next quest: A place in the State Championship Final Four.

An exciting proud moment. I'm not a sports mom. I show up when I can, but I barely follow the game. For the most part I couldn't care less if they win. I worry about boys getting hurt and standing up to the pressure. More than once I've told my son, my son, "just quit the team - it's too much time." Perhaps this is his way of rebelling - not only by continuing, but excelling beyond all expectations. Surprising all of us, even himself. Doing so great! I'm so happy for him. Sweet victory!
