The Fuquay men’s lacrosse team finished with a regular-season record of 10-6 and a conference record of 8-0, to win the Greater Neuse River Conference.

Coached by Brad Wheeler, the Bengals are going into the playoffs with high hopes. 

“I think our team can play with anyone,” said senior Caden Castle. who leads the team in goals per game, as well as assists per game, “I just want us to go out there and try to win.”

This last season for the seniors is a memorable one since it will be the only full season these seniors have had. “This last season has meant a lot to me,” said Castle, “it has taught me to be grateful and be happy for what I have because it can be taken at any moment. 

Senior goalie Drew Wheeler looks back on the memories he’s had with this team. “My favorite memory at Fuquay was making long-term friendships,” said Wheeler, “seeing how much we have grown as a program, going from a team who couldn’t make playoffs to then winning three conference championships in a row and going to the third round in playoffs in the 2021 season.” 

Wheeler with a great save percentage of .729, is more than capable of protecting the net and helping to carry his team further into the playoffs.

With a great regular season over, the team moves forward against cross-town
