Durango – It certainly wasn’t the year anyone wanted, but despite not having a season due to covid, the Skyhawks lacrosse team ended spring on a high note, completing our pick-up season with an inter-squad scrimmage on Saturday at the beautiful Smith Complex. Parents, friends, and fans came out to send off seniors Matt Dinsmore and Zach Majewski, who will be graduating later this spring with degrees in marketing and outdoor education respectively.
The dark team came out on top 9-5, led by rising juniors Tristen Emory and Cullen Robinette, coaches and alumni suited up for each team, while former FLC coach John Robinette was on hand to photograph the game and cheer on the youngest of his boys, Cullen.
Matt Dinsmore came to Fort Lewis four years ago from Columbus, Ohio. He has been on the team for the past three years, starting at defense every game up until the pandemic. He was a captain his final two abbreviated seasons and will leave a big hole both on and off the field.
Zach meanwhile, came to Durango from the Chicago suburbs, also starting every game of his three seasons on the team. The fast lefty was a leader at the midfield who might be around with the team in a coaching capacity in the future. And will at least be found in the mountains around southwest Colorado after graduation.
Coach named alumni Jacob Branch-Boyle MVP of the game, despite the losing effort, Boyle score all five of the white teams goals on the afternoon.
Join us next season as the Skyhawks come back from the lockdown with a new group of student-athletes to represent Fort Lewis College.
