The boys lacrosse team finished the 2017 season with a 10-8 overall record and a trip to the A-AAAAA State Playoffs. This year marked the third consecutive year the War Eagles have qualified for the state tournament.
One of the most exciting moments this season was when Woodward traveled to Buford to face the always talented Wolves. The War Eagles trailed in the second half but mounted a stirring comeback to force overtime. In extra time, senior Ben Wilkinson netted the game-winning goal to give Woodward a 12-11 road victory.
All-South Metro honors went to freshman Eric Malever (attack), junior Cade Thomas (defense), and senior Ben Wilkinson (midfield). In addition, Malever earned 2nd team All-State honors as an attack player, the only freshman attack player to earn all-state honors. The team graduated nine seniors this year, but with a strong core of younger players returning, boys lacrosse will look to be even better in 2018.
