The boys high school lacrosse team finished its regular season last week with a dominant victory over South Kitsap, 19-1.

Vashon secured first place in the Olympic division with a win over Division I Stadium High School, 13-5, on Senior Day, a day dedicated to honoring outgoing seniors. During the matchup with Stadium, Winter Krimmert scored a season-high seven goals and one assist, playing his best game of the season.

In the same game, Ezra Ende and Griff Jennings scored a pair of goals, while senior midfielder Evan Anderson had a goal and an assist.

Vashon enters the playoffs as the number-one Olympic seed and will face Camas High School at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Vashon High School stadium.

Coach Daniel Macca said that it has been an “incredible year” for the lacrosse team.

“We entered the season as virtual unknowns, but all that changed as soon as we began dispatching Division I teams,” he said. “We started the season with one goal, to win the Division II championship, and we plan on realizing that vision.”

Also of note, Griff Jennings and Ezra Ende were recently voted by the league onto the All Conference Team. Nick Amundsen, Winter Krimmert and Ian McWhirter were all honorable mention selections.
