Athlete of the Week: Regional champs

The Wolves finished their spring season in the Elite Eight in the MHSAA Division 1 Boys Lacrosse playoffs.
“It was a great season,” said Brian Kaminskas, head coach for the Clarkston Boys Varsity Lacrosse team. “It was a great set of seniors and a great group behind them of juniors and powerful sophomores.”
He added it was a good season, especially since they took a step back last year.

“It happens in sports in general,” Kaminskas continued. “I don’t see it is as a negative. We always have the same expectations of the region at a minimum and we achieved it in good fashion. We had two mercies in the playoffs.
The team finished fifth in the state, regional champions and second in the OAA Red.
