Hewitt-Trussville boys lacrosse makes playoffs in first season

By Gary Lloyd

TRUSSVILLE — The Hewitt-Trussville varsity boys lacrosse team is in the playoffs in its first season.

The boys play Monday at Oak Mountain in the first round of the Greater Birmingham Youth Lacrosse Association Division II playoffs.

Head coach Jamey Curlee said 80 percent of the team is made up of freshmen and sophomores, “so we are primed to only get better and work for a state championship,” he said.

Curlee said the team this season knew it would be tough facing the likes of Mountain Brook, Hoover, Vestavia Hills, and Spain Park, programs established in lacrosse. He said “our kids took that challenge and ran with it.”

Other coaches are Kris Knighsley, George McBride, Tom McCormick and Barry Sides.

Curlee said the Hewitt-Trussville girls lacrosse team has also done well this season. The team finishes its season with a home game Tuesday, April 29 against John Carroll.

“Most of the girls have never even heard of lacrosse before this year,” Curlee said. “Each game they get better and better.”
