How did you feel about your performance in today’s game?

I thought it was a good start for everyone on the team. Our offense is moving really fast. Everyone moves the ball great, very unselfish. It’s a bunch of dodgers out here that I get to be on the opposite side. So it’s nice.

How about you personally? When you have those kinds of opportunities, how good does it feel to convert them?

It feels good. It’s just a lot of practice throughout the week. We’re going 1-0 every rep, every practice, and every drill. So it’s nice to get a little satisfaction when the plays come through.

Offense absent for Mount St. Mary’s in 16-6 men's lacrosse loss at No. 17 Georgetown

Goals came at a premium for Mount St. Mary’s men’s lacrosse, which failed to reach double digits in goals for the first time this season in a 16-6 loss Tuesday at Georgetown.

What is the feeling on the team having improved to 4-0?

I think like I just said, one of our main fundamental values of our team that we chose this year was to go 1-0, and we’re just taking it one game at a time. So I think we’re not looking too far ahead to the future. We’re just staying consistent with our program and our values.

Is it difficult, though, not to feel particularly good about this 4-0 start?

No, I mean yeah, it definitely feels good, but we’re staying focused. We’re focusing on short-term goals right now.

What’s been the difference this year versus last year?

It’s definitely the 13 seniors. They are an incredible group of guys that are keeping everyone focused. They’re all in this thing for the long run, and they all just keep this team going.

A preseason scrimmage in which the Hoyas men’s lacrosse team battled 2017 national champion Maryland might have sparked the Hoyas’ 3-0 start in 2018.
