The Mount Greylock High School lacrosse team went undefeated in the regular season and is entering the playoffs as the favorite to win its third league championship.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock lacrosse team is vying for its third consecutive league champion this weekend.

Lee defeated Northern Berkshire — the Hoosac Valley team — Thursday in the first round of the playoffs. The winner of Saturday's game will faceoff to become the Berkshire County Lacrosse Association league champion Wednesday.

"We have a good team. Our offense, I think it is the best in the league," Mount Greylock coach Jeff Stripp said of the team's chances on Thursday.
