After starting the season with a 10-1 record, reporter Sean Clark meet up with senior lacrosse player Liam Birrell to discuss the amazing season the NAU boys team has been having.

Birrell credits the team’s success to the strong defense lead by Mitchell Peterson as well as an outstanding faceoff player in Sean Mastro. The ability to win face-offs this season has given the offense, lead by Adam Zimmerman opportunities to get down and score.

Heading into the SLC tournament in two weeks from now, Birrell says practicing hard and staying healthy is the main key to preparation for the Lumberjacks. Before worrying about the national championship, the Lumberjacks look to win the conference finals.
