WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Cape Fear Academy boys' lacrosse team winning the 2017 North Carolina Independent School Athletic Associations division two state championship.

Now the Hurricanes are trying to stay at the top of the mountain, and are not changing their approach to winning.

"I feel like we are going to take it the same way" said CFC senior Cole Boggio. "Not think about how we are the team to beat. But think how we are going to beat everyone else."

"We just have to remember what it felt like to win it all last year" said senior William Lewis. "What joy we got from putting in all that hard work and getting what we wanted. So, we just need to refocus, and accomplish our goal which is to win the state championship."

The Hurricanes challenge themselves by playing the very best programs in the state, no matter the size of the school.

"We play the big boys to improve" said head coach Paul Gilbert.

"We always have the mindset that there is a team better than us" said senior Preston Meehl. "We are always the underdog. We can't stay on top and focused and work our hardest."

Cape Fear (6-3) next plays Arendell Parrott Academy on the road Thursday.
