ROSWELL, Ga. – The Roswell boys' lacrosse team won the state championship Saturday, May 17, in a 6-5 game against Lambert. This was the first time in Roswell's history to host a home state championship game for any sport, and the team estimates about 5,000 spectators in attendance for the game.

"We were definitely the underdog," said head coach Alex Chrzanowski. "We lost to Lambert in the regular season, and playing Chattahoochee was an early test as well."

He said the team had to face some harsh realities about their playing during the season.

"We faced some hard facts as far as our shortcomings and how to improve. But we did it. That's the great thing about this team," he said. "They can improve without ego."

Chrzanowski said the championship game was "intense" because it marked the first time a final game was played at Roswell High School.

"The energy was amazing," he said. "Our defense came through with us and our goalie [Brock Lohnes] as well. We reacted to our losses well and it turned out in our favor. We tried to look at every game as if we were playing the toughest team out there."

The team is losing 12 seniors this year, four of whom were starters. However, the bulk of the team is returning to the field next year.

A celebration dinner and fundraiser will be held to support the team at e 6 p.m. June 19 at Lucky's Burger and Brew, 1144 Alpharetta St., Roswell. A percentage of proceeds will be given to the lacrosse program.
