With the very exciting addition of coveted transfer Chris Gray, the outlook for UNC Lacrosse in 2020 was good, and they proved the hype was real by starting the season 7-0. Their offense jumped from 12 goals per game in 2019 to 17+ goals per game in 2020’s shortened season.
Good news, they return almost everyone on the offensive side of the ball. Bad news, the questions about the depth of their defense remain, and that could hurt the Heels if they don’t figure that side of the ball out in 2021. Granted, they didn’t get a chance to prove themselves defensively in 2020 as they never made it to the ACC portion of their schedule. But any true lacrosse fans know that’s the only thing anyone can doubt about this team, because they are stacked all over the field.
Offensive production returning for North Carolina, Chris Gray, Nicky Solomon, Alex Trippi, William Perry, Tanner Cook, Justin Anderson, and the list goes on. Caton Johnson and Will Bowen will anchor the defense and a plethora of other solid returns give Tarheel fans a lot of reasons to be optimistic at their chances of making it to Memorial Day Weekend.
