By Andy McKeever

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.

The high school aged team will have home field advantage in the second round of the playoffs Saturday night when it takes on Lee

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.
