The first-year White River lacrosse program, which includes a healthy dose of players from Enumclaw High, launches its maiden voyage Thursday.

Game time is 7 p.m. on the White River campus, with the squad taking on Peninsula.

Coach John O’Connor is pleased with the first-year turnout. He has 20 experienced players, along with a group of lacrosse newcomers who are, in the coach’s words, “great athletes…sure to contribute as the season and their skill levels progress.”

The attack is solid with Gavin Harderson and Matt Funkhouser, while the midfield features co-captains Jack Pugh and Marcus Henke. Immediate midfield contributions are expected from juniors Justin Tidwell and Luke Funkhouser. The defensive unit will be directed by co-captain Cedrik Pearson and freshman goalie Carson McElroy has performed well in practice and preseason scrimmages, O’Connor said.

The statewide lacrosse governing body has created a South Puget Sound League for this season and White River participates in the SPSL Division 2 along with Peninsula, Bethel, Auburn Riverside, Bonney Lake and Sumner.
