Highland Park’s lacrosse season concluded with an upset loss to Austin Westlake in the opening round of the Texas High School Lacrosse League playoffs.
The 9-7 defeat on Saturday at Highlander Stadium denied the Scots (10-4) a spot in the state tournament next weekend. They were the runner-up in the Class AA division a year ago.
Meanwhile, the Chaparrals (13-1) won at HP for the first time in program history. They were the only lower seed in the eight-team bracket to emerge victorious on Saturday.
The Scots did have several players who received THSLL all-state recognition last week, including Jackson Holmes, Sam Wheeler, Hayden Helgemoe, and Mason Gallas.
