April 17, 2001|By Lem Satterfield

Carver's boys lacrosse team, off to a 3-0 start, has two difficult city league games this week with Douglass today and four-time defending league champ Patterson on Friday.

The Bears, who ended Patterson's three-year winning streak, 17-12, earlier this year, are led by attackman Delfonda Cooper (16 goals, six assists), junior midfielders Brandon Davis (12, six) and Jerrell Ingram (10, eight) and junior attackman Marqus Robinson (three, 15).

Anchoring the defense are senior Reginald Goodman and juniors Shawn Leach, Marlon Taylor and Gerald Brown (goalie).

"We went through some growing pains last year," said coach Paul Britt, a Forest Park graduate whose team was 7-5 last spring. "We're still pretty young, but we're playing with more maturity."

With Britt, there are nine former Forest Park players coaching in the city league. They are head coaches Ray Harcum (Douglass) and Lloyd Carter (Northwestern), Carver assistants Sherrod Patterson and Shawn Markley, Douglass assistants James Heath and Anthony Lee, Edmondson assistant Terry Boyce and Northwestern assistant Robert Britt.
