Stephenson leads Trojan lacrosse win over Enloe
Spencer Stephenson stops 16 of 21 shots and Cameron Hollingsworth, Dylan Casey, Eli Bridges, Aaron Roberts (2) Bailey Benjamin (2) tally goals in 7-5 Trojan lacrosse win over Enloe. Stellar defense from Keion White, Randall Schindler, Nicholas Oerter and Scott Bartholemew keep the Eagles off the board most of the second half after Garner took 5-4 halftime lead for the home conference win, we believe may be the first for Trojan lacrosse.

Softball clutch 6th inning for comeback 11-6 win
