In its inaugural season, the IMG Academy lacrosse team is proving to be quite the well-oiled machine.  IMG Academy recorded another blowout win, this time over Sarasota by a score of 23-2. Junior Jonathan Thelen had seven goals and five assists, and sophomores Tyler Liotta and Jackson Costello each added four goals apiece to put the game away early. 

Pleased with the results on the field, Defensive Coordinator Jason Basso said, “We have started to gel together nicely, and you are beginning to see it on the field."

The contest between IMG Academy and Sarasota was part of the lacrosse Spring Jamboree, held March 2. Other games played on campus included Manatee vs Durant; Lakewood Ranch vs Summerlin; Newsome vs Port Chartlotte; and Summerlin vs Manatee.

IMG Academy improved to 4-1 on the year with the win, and returns to action at home against Alonso on Thursday, March 7.
