Boys Junior Varsity Lacrosse, Boys Varsity Lacrosse · Wauwatosa Blazers – Senior Boys Recognized


The freshman class of the 2015-2016 school year came in originally as a larger class than their sophomore predecessors and anchored a very young JV team coached by first year JV coaches Matthew “Bones” Bonnelli, and Jesus “Zeus” Arquelles-Chavira.  Some of these kids came in to the program with more experience than any other freshman class in program history having played since 5th or 6th grade.

This group of kids along with their young coaches that year on JV posted the programs best JV record in program history going 11-4-1 finishing the regular season as the Classic 8 JV regular season co-champions, and making it to the semifinal game of the JV playoffs.  As sophomores 3 of these seniors were contributors to the team in multiple facets some as JV captains and also playing minutes on the 2017 varsity team that went 19-3 (7-0 conference) and won the Classic 8 – black division for the second straight season and advanced to the WLF State Tournament Semi-final round.  Other in this class did not join the program until their junior year but became immediate contributors to the team on JV and Varsity for these past two years.

All of these young men have put this program on their back and has set a great example of hard work both in the class room, on the athletic field, and in the community.  Each and every one of them are leaders to their peers in some form or another and are the best teammates anyone can ask for.

From all of us as part the of the Wauwatosa Blazers family at Wauwatosa West, East and Wisconsin Lutheran High School communities we wish the following young men the best of luck in all your future endeavors wherever your paths may lead.
