     With Lacrosse being its first year as a sport at Saint Louis, it’s hard to expect tons of success. The team coached by teacher, and long time lacrosse player, John Keogh, consists of many players who have little to no previous Lacrosse experience. However, the majority of the team is made up of underclassmen who look to continue the sport, and have been improving as the season progresses. Joe Lyons and Adrian Bates-Domingo are the lone senior leaders. Underclassmen Timote Timoteo is a great defensive player given his size and his previous experience playing with pads on during the football season. Ryan Tupea has proven himself as a great attacker who helps their offense stay strong, while Tom Kilmer balances out the team as an excellent midfielder.

Imai Bates Domingo brakes his stick.

     The Crusaders are currently sitting at 0-2 after playing the first two games in the history of the program. The two losses against the Honolulu Sharks club and Punahou have given this young team an opportunity to learn from, and correct their mistakes. The other teams have tons of talent and their programs have been established for several years, so it will take time for the Crusaders to get the ball rolling and achieve their goal of a winning season in the future.
