SM East’s champion lacrosse team is picking up the 2013 right where it left off in 2012: winning.

The Lancers are 5-1 after a nine day season-opening stretch that took them on a two-game road trip to St. Louis. On the trip the Lancers beat St. Louis-area Chaminade Prep, but fell to St. Louis University High School. Locally, they’ve had success against Lee’s Summit West, Olathe South, St. Thomas Aquinas and Blue Valley North.

The Lancers take on Blue Valley West at 8 p.m. tonight at SM North.
