Whitman’s Varsity Boys Lacrosse team sought revenge after their 12-5 loss against Hills East and exacted it upon a winless Copiague team on Thursday afternoon. Whitman scored at will and spread the scoring around so almost everyone had their shot. Copiague had their chances, but were unmatched against Whitman’s on-their-game defense and stellar goal keeping from junior Shane Brennan.

The Wildcats season now sits at 4-2 in Suffolk League II play as they head into the second half of their season. League I rival Commack will be at Whitman on Monday, April 20th at 6:45 and then the Wildcats will travel to League II powerhouse Smithtown West on Wednesday April 22nd for a 5PM showdown.
