St. Edward’s University in early February, the Texas A&M Galveston men’s lacrosse team is quickly making a comeback for what looks like one of their greatest seasons yet.

The men’s lacrosse team began their winning streak by defeating Abilene Christian University 15-1. The team has been putting in an enormous amount of work in hopes of qualifying for finals later this May.

On Sunday, February 24th, the Aggies took on Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi (TAMUCC) this past weekend, who the team previously lost to last semester, but bounced back by beating them 25-8. Top players in the game being David Falloure, a senior maritime major, Reagan Walla, a junior maritime major, and Sam Venette, a junior maritime major. One of the best plays of the game occurred when Venette ran for the goal before throwing it to Walla who scored.

TAMUCC tried to make a comeback throughout the second quarter, getting the score up nine to six, but were not able to hold it for long. After TAMUG scored over ten points, they left TAMUCC in the dust, finishing with Ricky McNeil Jr., a senior marine engineering technology major, scoring the final goal of the game, bringing the score to 25-8.

John Campbell, the coach for the TAMUG men’s lacrosse team, said, “The team is trying to play more aggressive and put in more effort and hustle.”

The team will be traveling to Colorado for the week of spring break to take on Metropolitan State College and the Colorado School of Mines. The team will travel back to Texas when spring break ends with a home game against Louisiana on March 23rd.
