Fairmont Senior lacrosse star, Patrick Laxton, is this week’s Honda Athlete of the Week. With the help of four goals from Laxton, the Polar Bears took home their first state title since 2009, downing John Marshall, a team they lost to just three weeks prior.
“We didn’t dwell on the past at all. We jut moved on and, we ultimately showed them that, hey, we jut had a bad game. We are coming out strong and we will win,” said Laxton.
Laxton says he and the team will get back to work soon to begin their title defense.
