Theo Weidinger lifts Lee boys’ lacrosse over Chicopee

After a slow start to its season, the Lee boys’ lacrosse team
needed a boost. With a quick start and a dominant performance in the back, the
Wildcats got just that.

The Wildcats beat the Chicopee Pacers Friday afternoon, buoyed by
a stellar fourth quarter from goalie Theo Weidinger, who finished the day with
16 saves, nine coming in the final frame.

In each of their games this season, the Wildcats had not been
strong out of the gate. Falling behind and having to play from a disadvantage,
coach Mike Bakaletz turned the team’s attention to starting stronger and trying
to play from a position of power.

“We were really trying to focus on coming out hot,” Snyder said. “That was a point of focus in practice this week to really step up in the first quarter.”
