The Kenwood boys lacrosse team isn't filled with Division I college prospects and doesn't have near the depth than most teams. In fact, its roster only consists of 19 players, 17 of which are seniors.
But that hasn't stopped the Bluebirds from enjoying a breakthrough season. After claiming Baltimore County's Division II championship last week with a 12-2 win over defending champion Owings Mills, the Bluebirds enjoyed the program's biggest win when they upset longtime Baltimore County power Catonsville, 7-6, to open their region playoff run.
After knocking off Poly in the quarterfinal round, the Bluebirds (12-3) travel to Howard this afternoon in a bid to reach their first region title game.
Senior Nick Eliadis, one of 17 seniors on the team, has been the starting point on attack. The four-year starter is the program's all-time leading scorer with 188 career points. In the Baltimore County championship game, he led the way with a four-goal, two-assist performance.
