“It was the first time I’d ever hit the wall, first time I’d ever held a lacrosse stick in my hand,” said senior Hunter Irvin, referring back to his initial experiences with lacrosse in third grade. Ever since, lacrosse has been one of Irvin’s passions. A four–year Varsity player on both the BHS Lacrosse and Water Polo teams, his innate skill and leadership ability has earned him the respect of teammates, and landed him positions as captain of both teams. In addition, he received the Tom Bates Award, given to students who exemplify leadership in some aspect of their school careers.
