Men's lacrosse: Wilsonville grad Jeremey Wetherbee, Nevada win WCLL title
Jeremey Wetherbee and the Nevada mens lacrosse team won a conference title by edging San Jose State 5-4 in the West Coast Lacrosse League championship game May 4 at Novato High School in Novato, Calif.
Wetherbee, who graduated from Wilsonville High School last year, carved out regular playing time as the Wolf Pack (10-4, 4-2 in the WCLL) engineered one of its best seasons in program history.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound midfielder saw action in 11 of Nevadas 14 games, and he was the only freshman to receive faceoff duties this season.
He also notched four goals and recovered 15 ground balls. His goals came in four-straight games against Southern Oregon, Central Washington, UC Santa Cruz and Humboldt State all wins for the Wolf Pack.
Hes got the style we were looking for, Nevada coach Chris Tatro said of Wetherbee. Hes got the temperament, the calm skills and were bringing him fully into the Wolf Pack way of lacrosse. He is one of our go-to guys now and we know he will just grow through his years here.
After starting the season with three-straight losses, Nevada rolled off eight wins in a row to build momentum heading into the WCLL playoffs for Division II. The team defeated UC Santa Cruz 9-6 in the league semifinals to advance to the title match, where it clipped San Jose State.
