Last Friday night didn’t go the way Navarre’s boys lacrosse team hoped. The Raiders were beat 20-0 by West Florida in their home opener at the NYSA’s Ian Lockwood Field.
But not every night in the early part of this season has been a tough one.
Amber Leggett added to her legacy at Sam Houston State this week, receiving the top honor in the Southland Conference.
She became just the second player in program history to be named the conference’s player of the year, and she did thanks to a season that was nothing short of impressive.
Seventeen hits, seven pitchers and 20 runs.
That’s what Navarre and Washington combined for in a wild game Monday night that ended with the Raiders falling 12-8.

Nick Ducati prepared for his final lift in a dual meet against Choctaw Wednesday afternoon. His teammates stood around him, cheering loudly and shouting words of encouragement.

Tyler Hymel said he came into this tennis season more confident in his ability to excel on the court and it’s showing.
He picked up his latest win Thursday, winning his first singles match 9-7 over Cole Armstrong, and he said the experience he gained over the summer is paying off.
Navarre head coach Jay Walls said earlier this week he’d like to see a smaller, more localized district for this area if reclassification does take place for football for the 2021-22 and 2022-23 school years.
Reclassification takes place every two years, and the last time it happened in 2019, Navarre was bumped up to 7A and placed in a district that included three Tallahassee schools.
