Jonah Smith and the Wahconah boys earned a No. 3 seed in the MIAA State Lacrosse Tournament.

No Berkshire County lacrosse team has ever won an MIAA state championship. Eight of them will begin play next week striving to be the first team to accomplish that.

The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association released its brackets for the state high school lacrosse tournaments on Friday afternoon. The highest-seeded team is the boys squad from Wahconah.
