The lost season for the Colorado College men’s lacrosse team

"It sucks every single day," "It was heartbreaking," "Still sometimes I'll see that we were supposed to play today and that will kind of make me angry," Those are the feelings from some of the seniors on the Colorado College men's lacrosse team. Like many college student-athletes the Colorado College men's lacrosse teams' season abruptly came to an end, "Definitely is hard. I still think about it to this day. I don't think I've touched a lacrosse stick since cuz I don't really want to bring it all back," says Tiger senior Coby Petau, Cooper Lee added, "It came so unexpectedly, you don't expect to go out this way." The Tigers were off to a six oh and start and the seniors felt like something special was brewing, "This could have been something special. This was probably the best team that I've played with at Colorado College in all my four years here. You just wonder what if? You gotta wonder what if,? says Petau. "This is our year to have that opportunity to potentially become a top ten, top five team in the country," says Lee.

The players are now spread out throughout the country and what they miss the most are the early Sunday morning practices, "Assuming we won the team had some fun Saturday night and woke up the next day the coaches understood that we had some fun Saturday night, says Andrew Harwood, "Eight am practice! It sounds horrible but we loved it," says Lee. They loved the early practices and their time at Colorado College, "The hardest part is just is not knowing when we are all going to see each other again," says Harwood. "They call it the medicine game once you pick up that stick and touch that ball it's a piece of medicine and it really helps heal the soul and heal the heart. If we had the opportunity to finish up the season I knew for a fact that we would have done something special," says Petau.
