2013 DI Captains:
Matthew Meaders, Hilton Kennington and Bryce Green
This is not a Cinderella Story. This is not even an underdog story.
No, this is story about a group of players who came together as a team when everybody had them written off and said their window had closed. This is a story about Highland Park (Texas), the team that won its sixth state championship with gritty defense and pure heart.
5. Highland Park (Texas), 12-7
All the pieces of the puzzle came together for Highland Park, which won Texas High School Lacrosse League's boys Division I state championship with a 5-4 win over St. Mark's in the title game Sunday. The Fighting Scots lost seven games during the regular season, which included defeats to Episcopal Dallas, The Woodlands, Dallas Jesuit and St. Mark's. Guess what? The Fighting Scots beat each one of them on their way to the state title to cap off an incredible season.
Daniel Wenz, Sr., Highland Park (Dallas, Texas), midfield
The Scots surprised everyone in the Lone Star state at the end of the year, first upsetting Dallas Jesuit (Dallas) and then St. Mark’s (Dallas) behind Wenz’s clutch play. First against Jesuit in the state semifinal on May 5, the versatile midfielder scored three goals. Then in the state championship on May 6 he tallied four points on two goals and two assists. It was a memorable week for the senior captain who did his part leading his squad to the state title.
