ATTACKMANIA - The attacking corp was already destined to be deadly with senior Nick Aponte and sophomore Grant Ament at the helm. But replacing TJ Sanders, who had the second most goals for the Lions last season, was expected to be a difficult task. Clearly, no one told Mac O’Keefe that. The freshman is probably still flickering through the nightmares of Midshipmen goalies. He scored five goals in the preseason opener, all while not playing the entire contest. Expect a lot of production from the trigger-happy trio.
About 25 members of Ocean City’s boys lacrosse team recently spent a Saturday morning packing and loading furniture, clothing, medical supplies and other donations bound for Liberia.
The team lent a helping hand to Hope for Liberia, a nonprofit founded and headed by Eli Gbayee, who spoke to students when he visited Ocean City High School earlier this year, according to a press release.
