The undefeated San Benito High School junior varsity lacrosse team will have its final game Friday, May 6 as it looks to remain undefeated. The Balers will play Pacific Grove at Andy Hardin Field at 3:30 p.m.  

The perfect season has occurred in just the second year of the program on campus. The Balers' season includes two wins over beat Palma High School from Salinas, which has one of the most well-established lacrosse programs on the Central Coast.

There are no playoffs for JV, so the game will be the big season finale for the program. The JV head coach is Al DeVos and assistant coaches are John Hawkes and Randy Brown.

The JV players appear poised to move up and create a strong varsity program over the next few years.
