The key to Highland Park’s lacrosse fortunes this season could be in the knees.
Let’s flash back to 2011, when the Scots lost seven players to season-ending knee injuries, forcing them to rely on young and inexperienced players, and struggled to an early exit in the playoffs.
The next year, HP won the Texas High School Lacrosse League state title.
Could a repeat be in the Scots’ future following a 2014 season in which a series of injuries to key seniors led to some growing pains and an eventual loss in the state semifinals? Coaches and players hope so, and they have reason for their optimism.
