No disrespect to Cherry Creek’s three previous boys lacrosse state championship teams, Bruins coach Bryan Perry emphatically said, but the group that hoisted the 2010 state trophy at Invesco Field at Mile High on Saturday could cause a grown man to cry.
Perry wasn’t visibly teary-eyed after his relatively young squad easily defeated Regis 11-4 for the state crown. That comes Monday when Perry is reminded that the season is over.
“Win or lose this game, man, on Monday I’m going to miss the 2010 Bruins, because they were a heck of a version of the Bruins,” Perry said. “From start to finish, from September to now, they’ve done everything we’ve asked of them.”
