Junior captain Calvin Annulis has been one of the most valuable players throughout the 2019 season for Wildcats varsity lacrosse. The Wildcats entered the playoffs with a 5-6 record, but lost in the second round to Churchill. Annulis has been on varsity all three years at WJ, and has grown into one of the team’s true leaders.
Q: What has been your favorite moment of this year’s season?
A: “My favorite part of this year’s season was our win against Einstein in triple overtime. It really helped the team get back in reality check for the rest of the season.”
Q: What role on the team do you view yourself as?
A: “I try to see myself as the motivator of the team. I want to make sure my guys feel confident before a game and know that if we are putting our best effort out there every single day, that’s all that matters in the end.”
Q: What has been the key to your success this season?
A: “I would say that we, as a group of lacrosse players, work really well together and have a chemistry that not a lot of other teams have. We have this mentality of working as a team and not as individuals.”
Q: How have you improved from last years season?
A: “I would say that I’ve improved a lot from last season. Although my skill level has improved from last year, I really think my confidence in my defense has helped a lot as well. We as a group have improved a lot from last season, so I have to give some credit to those guys.”
Q: Where would you like to see your lacrosse future go?
A: “Many of my teammates want me to play Division 1, but I just feel like it would be too much pressure and would take away from the fun of college. However, I would consider possibly D-III or a competitive club lacrosse team at a D-I college. After that, I plan to play lacrosse for fun and join the WJ lacrosse alumni team.”
