Last Year: 10-10 (4-2)
Playoff Finish: Lost 7-4 to Chapman in SLC Quarterfinal

Most people who have watched Southern California high school and youth club teams compete in tournaments against teams from Las Vegas know that they play some serious lacrosse in Nevada.

UNLV, a team that is blessed with local talent, has benefitted from the growth of the game in Vegas.    One of the more surprising teams from last season, UNLV brought us one of the most entertaining games of the year in its upset SLC quarterfinal win against Grand Canyon University.  While the Rebels hope to continue last year’s success, some key departures on both ends of the field may slow them down. Goalies Matt Sathrum (Bonanza, NV) and Matt Smith (Faith Lutheran, NV) both were seniors last year, so the Rebels will field young defense in 2015. Shifty and dangerous midfileder Harrison Kruger (Centennial, NV) will lead the Rebels offense this season with the help of Blake Day (Coronado, NV) and Cameron Stimson (Faith Lutheran, NV). The scrappy and hard-nosed Runnin’ Rebels hope to improve on last season’s effort and return to the SLC playoffs once again.
