((The success of this General team actually began 4 years ago when the current senior class chose Washington and Lee to continue their lacrosse career at the college level.)) ((JIM STAGNITTA/W & L HEAD COACH:)) ((The senior class has carried much of the load. The Generals have dominated faceoffs winning 3 out of every 4 tries.


Senior attackman Matt Dugan leads the team in scoring and the team as a whole ranks third in division three in goals per game averaging 15 a game.
While the defense led by goalie Wes Hays is allowing just over 17 shots per game.
But its the teams togetherness that has produced this winning season.)) ((MATT DUGAN/29 GOALS 48 POINTS:)) ((WES HAYS/W & L GOALIE:)) ((ROY STANLEY:))
