Members of the Baldwin boys' lacrosse program had a blast Sunday competing in Bethel Park.
Baldwin won the eight-team Bethel Park Lacrosse Blast tournament, an all-day event held at Bethel Park High School that had college coaches on hand.
The Highlanders defeated Moon the championship game, after tying Shaler and beating University School (W.Va.), Peters Township and Bethel Park.
“It was a great day for the program,” Shawn Leydig, Baldwin's head coach, said. “Everyone on the roster contributed.
“It was a long, cold day, but well worth it to bring the trophy home to Baldwin.”
Baldwin team members included Kevin Moore, Samer Kahwash, Miller Mikkelsen, Bobby Ross, Mark Dugan, Wes Richards, Nick Boeggeman, Tony Thornton, Rocco Ruscitto, Nick Dongilli, Jack Tulenko, Josh Zinsmeister, Enzo Ruscitto, Evan Snyder, Andrew Hulsman, Josh Murray, Matt Dieter, Sean McGlaughlin, Dan Goga, Joe Tulenko and Alex Murray.
Thornton, Richards and Snyder led the Highlanders offensively, while Enzo Ruscitto, Tulenko and Moore, the team's starting goaltender, stood out on defense.
Leydig was assisted by Jack Halley and Matt Unger.
Baldwin was joined at the tournament by Shaler, University School, Bethel Park, Peters Township, Moon, Gateway and Chartiers Valley.
The Highlanders ended up 4-0-1 overall.
