WHS Athlete of the Week - Thomas Lopez

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.
