Fredrick Douglass once said, "If there is no struggle, there is no progress."

Throughout the recently concluded lacrosse season, the Scholars Academy Seawolves endured many obstacles and faced more than a handful of challenges.

They overcame the fear of losing and learned to rely on one another as a team.

By being persistent throughout, they came out with a successful record of 7- 2 for the season.

The Scholars' Academy lacrosse team is made up students from grades 6, 7 and 8, and one 9th grader, Ryan McCabe.

I had a chance to sit down and conference with McCabe and gain some insight into the team dynamic.

"We had a lot of first timers and it was a little hard to get the players together to cooperate and work as a team," said McCabe.

"I never doubted myself in a game because after all the practices and the drills, I was confident enough and believed that I can and will succeed."

His fellow teammate, Jonathan Maranga, also had a few words of wisdom to share.

"I don't believe that I ever let my team down because I never gave anything less than 100%," said Maranga said.

He believes that this season was pretty good because the players bonded and learned how to work as a team.

It certainly was a season of lessons learned and games well played!
