Well, the Watauga High men's lacrosse team seems to be turning itself around. After winning just one game the last two years, the Pioneers (2-1 overall; 1-0 in district play) find themselves with a winning record and riding a modest two-game
winning streak for the first time in school history.
The Pioneers pulled it off Tuesday night as they knocked off Patton 7-5 in Morganton in their district opener. Nick Williams led the way with three goals; Dominick Hamilton had two goals; Canyon Mueller had two assists. The Pioneers travel to Hickory Friday night. Match time is 7 p.m.

The JV team won, 8-4. Haley Ellison had four goals; Elle Sloboda and Kali Scott had two goals apiece. WHS travels to Kernersville to play Bishop McGuinness Friday night. It will be a varsity only match beginning at 6 p.m.
