The boys varsity Wentzville lacrosse team held their senior night at Liberty High School on Friday, April 22. The Wentzville side took on Parkway South at 7:30 p.m. Although their match ended in a loss to South 7-6, this did not take away from the senior night activities nor the spirit displayed. This year, the Wentzville team is composed of 18 seniors; all of them were celebrated and honored on Friday night.
