The James River Boys lacrosse program took a huge step forward over the weekend.  After finishing the 2016 season strong, the Rapids open quite a few eyes around town by advancing through the state tournament grind to qualify for the Championship Game last Saturday.  Added to the challenge of playing the championship game on Saturday, was getting the seniors who graduated from James River in the morning at VCU’s Siegel Center, to Lake Braddock to take part in the game in the afternoon. 

The upperclassmen made the trip and arrived in time to take on reigning State Champion, James Robinson.  The Rapids put forth a respectable effort, after falling behind by a large margin early in the game, but it was not enough.  James Robinson 14, James River 2 and the Rapids finish as Runner-up. 

The real result of the 2106 Rapids 16-2 breakthrough season was made loud and clear, the James River Lacrosse program has arrived.  Plan to see another visit by the Rapids to the State Championship net year.
