Leonard leads stout Churchill LAX team

churchillIt is safe to say Matt Leonard is the best lacrosse player in Churchill history. He is the all-time school leader in goals (career, season and individual games) and has 63 tallies in 13 games of his senior season.

But most importantly, he leads a Churchill team that earned the top seed in the 4A/3A West region with a 12-1 record for the chance to win their first ever lacrosse state title.

Leonard’s 63 goals are the most in Washington metro area, according to AllMetSports.com. He’s signed to play lacrosse at Towson University starting in the fall.

“I’ve been playing with Matt and Matt Moshyedi since sixth grade… he’s a great player, he’s a great shooter,” said sophomore Louis Dubick. “He’s the guy that knows where to be all the time. He picks corners every time he steps on the field and that’s his strong suit, knowing where to be and ripping it hard. I like to give him the ball because I know I’ll get an assist out of it.”

His reign at the top of the school’s leader boards may be short lived, however. Dubick plans to break his records.

Dubick set the school record for assists with 48 in a year as a freshman and this year has already surpassed that mark. On top of his 55 goals this year, good for third in the Washington metro area, he has 63 assists. Next on the assist list is Jordan Cooper of Walter Johnson, who has 39.

That gives Dubick 118 points in 13 games for an average of about nine points per game.

Dubick has already signed a full scholarship offer to play at the University of Maryland, the number one ranked team in the country for most of this season, in 2015.

“He’s the quarterback,” said Matt’s father Bill Leonard. “He does it all.”

“Louis has got unreal vision,” said Matt Leonard. “He’s always finding everyone out there so I mean half the goals from all out teammates come from him. He gets the ball to everyone.”

Despite Dubick being two years behind Leonard they have been playing together for years. Each had the opportunity to play at private schools against tougher competition but “chose to stay together and elevate the local Churchill program, which they have done,” Bill Leonard said.
