Fallston Boys' Lacrosse Continues To Dominate

May 3, 2017
Fallston boys' lacrosse head coach Matt Parks sets simple goals for his team: focus on the game in front and get better each day.

So far, his players have heeded that advice.

Since losing to national power Boys' Latin March 28, the Cougars have reeled off eight consecutive victories. A tough nonconference schedule has kept Fallston battletested for league play in the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference, where it already beat rival Bel Air, 8-6, April 28.

"It's always a bonus to be able to schedule a tough out-of-conference schedule," Parks said. "It gives us the opportunity to get a good picture of our strengths and weaknesses heading into conference play."

Fallston (10-2) is led by Dylan Wolf (York), a four-year varsity player who has emerged as one of the top attackmen in the area. As teams have focused on shutting down Wolf, other talented players, such as seniors Ben Claffee (St. Mary's) and Justin Williams (Florida Tech), have helped carry the offense.

Two other seniors, Cameron Linger (St. Mary's) and Jeff Otenasek, have also come up big on the attack. And Colton Presley has emerged as another scoring threat during his first year as a starting attackman.

"Our second midfield, that are all underclassmen, are starting to find their groove to contribute, as well," Parks said.

Fallston has won four state championships during the past five years, and the team appears primed to add more hardware to the trophy case. The future also continues to be bright, with a steady stream of talented younger players in the program.

"We are very fortunate at Fallston right now that we have built a culture where we don't need to set quantitative goals," Parks said. "Each year, the current team wants to outdo what the previous year's team accomplished."
