2016 Angels Lacrosse Season Dedicated to the Memory of Billy Betts

Billy BettsPrior to the boy’s Saturday game vs. GW, Coach Sean McCarthy announced that this, the 51st season of lacrosse at East, will be dedicated to the memory of Billy Betts IV, who sadly passed away last summer. Billy played for the Angels lacrosse team for four seasons, and graduated in 2014. He was a bright and energetic contributor to the program, and he loved the East High Lacrosse community.

To honor Billy’s life, and his love for East High Lacrosse, his family announced they will sponsor an annual scholarship to assist a varsity player in need by covering his spring break trip travel costs. A banner now hangs at the East turf field to salute this unforgettable young man, Billy Betts. His #33 jersey has officially been retired.
