UGF Lacrosse Staying Positive in First Season

Posted: Updated:

The only time you start at the top is when you're digging a hole. The Argos lacrosse team has just started their program and are off to a 0-3 start but their coach is happy with the team's progression and spirit.

Head Coach Bryan Jenkins, "we've played some very good teams and the guys are working hard and playing hard. I think we're learning a lot and getting better every game."

UGF only has 3 games remaining in their short schedule including this Saturday against Portland State. A win in any of those games would be huge for the program.

Josh Smith, Freshman Attacker, "it'd be an awesome opportunity to win. It's going to take a team effort but if we got a win it would be the best feeling in the world, especially being a first year program and everything."

The Argos glass is half full. They hope to hope and expect to win, but even if they don't, they still enjoy the opportunity to play a collegiate sport.

"It's the best time of my life, honestly. Having this opportunity to be a college athlete and having this team be apart of it - it's great, it's awesome," said Smith.

Argos head coach Bryan Jenkins understands this as well, saying that there is more to college than winning lacrosse games.

"The biggest thing for us and I think this goes for all the sports at UGF you know getting good kids and having them graduate and going on with their lives. While they're here they have the privilege of playing a sport and that's a pretty good bonus for them," said Jenkins.

Success on the field may not come for the Argos immediately this season but there's no doubt that they will continue and try to climb their way to the top.
