The team hopes to take a big step forward this spring.  The Eagles return three starters from the 2022 team, which made the state playoffs for the fifth consecutive season.   

The team returns two all-conference and all-county attackmen who will be relied on even more this season: seniors Jack Kosten and Tyler Neuhoff.  Neuhoff is a three-year starter for the Eagles, while Kosten led the team in goals scored in 2022. 

Sophomore Xavier Mahoney, who was named Cherokee County Offensive Player of the Year, will be a leader in the midfield.  Mahoney was named all-county and all-conference in lacrosse last year as a freshman.

Junior CJ Presnell has impressed the coaching staff with his work ethic and leadership in the offseason and is expected to take on a much larger role in 2023.  Senior defenseman, Josh Faile can play close defense and long stick middie, and will lead the Eagles' defense.  After Etowah, he plans to study and play lacrosse at Shorter University.  

Despite returning only three starters from 2022, the team will rely on upper and underclassmen in hopes of reaching the state playoffs for a sixth consecutive season.
