Woodside High School’s boy’s lacrosse team has
taken their league opponents by storm, rolling to a 7-0 start in the Peninsula
Athletic League. A key component in the
Wildcat’s success has been Thomas Lopez, an 11th grader that has
scored 7 points in each of the last two victories. Thomas, whose older brother was an
All-American at Woodside one year ago and is currently playing at Kenyon
College in Ohio, believes the Wildcat’s success will continue through the
playoffs. Thomas is modest in his own abilities, crediting his teammates
for the team’s success, he is quick to point out the outstanding play of Adam Stockford, Collin Merwin and Colin
Kloezeman in propelling Woodside’s lacrosse team to their strong start. As with so many of
Woodside’s athletes, Thomas’ achievements on the playing field are matched by
outstanding academics, as Thomas currently has a 4.5 GPA. On a personal level, Thomas has his sights on
breaking his brother’s Woodside record of 99 points in a single season. Thomas plans on completing that task as a
junior, and setting an even higher bar for next season.
