The Triad Blackhawks have had a spring high school club team since 2010 to provide a place to play for players whose schools do not have lacrosse teams. In Spring 2018, the Blackhawks are, in place of their regular spring team, sponsoring a Davidson County club team in an effort to jump start lacrosse in that county beyond the existing North Davidson High School varsity lacrosse team. The purpose of this club program is to provide a place for high school boys in the Davidson County area to play lacrosse when they do not otherwise have a place to play. In Davidson County, only North Davidson HS currently has a lacrosse team. Over time, we hope that the DavCo Coyotes will provide experience for players whose high schools end up establishing their own lacrosse teams.
APRIL 21, 2018 -- DavCo Coyotes Conclude Season with Heart-Breaking Loss, but Heads High. The fledgling Davidson County Coyotes, sponsored by the Blackhawks, played their best game of the season on Senior Day today under gorgeous skies at Ivey Redmon Park in Kernersville, but ran out of gas in the 4th quarter in an 11-9 loss to Kannapolis. Behind the offensive firepower of Ledford HS's Jake Eaton (5 goals, 1 assist) and Oak Grove HS's Liam Dunman (3 goals), the Coyotes led 3-2 at the end of the first quarter and were tied 4-4 at half and 8-8 at the end of the third quarter. Some ill-timed penalties and a short bench (only one sub) finally caught up with the much-improved DavCo squad in the 4th quarter and Kannapolis earned the victory. This season, the Coyotes have had their normal share of players (and parents) whose commitment ended when the hard work began, but the 11 who finished (plus 3 more who had season-ending injuries) were the MOST COMMITTED spring players we have had since the Blackhawks first fielded a spring program in 2010. The improvement has been remarkable, and four of the 11 were playing their first lacrosse ever this season. The Blackhawks are proud of this team and hope it has helped to lay the foundation for the growth of lacrosse in Davidson County. GO COYOTES!
