The Lewis Mills lacrosse program is relatively new, starting in 2005, but when David Borovsky left the Watkinson School in West Hartford two years ago, he reunited with some of his former youth teammates and helped the Spartans program reach the next level.
“It was great, a lot of the kids we played youth together,” Borovsky, a senior, said.
When Borovsky came to Lewis Mills the Spartans were coming off a season where they had won just six games, his first season with the team they won 13 games, capturing the WCLC conference title, he scored 66 goals that season.
This past season Borovsky helped lead the Spartans to an undefeated regular season, 16-0, another WCLC conference title, the school’s first state tournament win, a 17-6 over Notre Dame-Fairfield, while scoring 85 goals and 24 assists en route to being named the WCLC MVP.
“It was really special,” he said about the first state tournament win in school history. “It’s a really small history, but it’s still history.”
In two seasons with the Spartans, Borovsky has scored 151 goals but credits to the Spartans strategy for some of his success.
“The way our offense is set up, I am in the middle and I am a beneficent of other peoples work,” said Borovsky and he made sure to always give his teammates credit. “I always try to.”
Borovsky, who started playing lacrosse in the sixth grade, will be continuing his lacrosse career next season at Eastern Connecticut State University.
“It’s awesome, ever since I was in seventh grade, I wanted to play college lacrosse,” he said. “To know that it’s happening, it’s special.”
With Borovsky and the rest of the senior class that has helped the Spartans become the top team in the area, he feels that the program is in good shape.
“We have good players in place, definitely think they are going to keep it going,” he said. “Our schools is proud of all of our athletics and our team has embodied it.”
