KFIZ Sports Two-a-Days : Laconia Spartans


The Laconia Spartans football team enters the 2018 season coming off a second-place finish in the Flyway Conference and a trip to level two of the WIAA Playoffs. To repeat that performance this season, the Spartans will need to replace 12 seniors, many of which were multi-sport athletes at Laconia. Spartans head coach Mark Madigan says those 12 seniors were competitors. “I loved watching those guys compete, I loved the way they took care of each other and always had each other’s backs, and it was an absolute pleasure watching those guys for the last four years and even longer before that” Madigan said.

Among the 12 seniors that depart were first-team All-Conference selections Cormac Madigan and Jaylen Mahone and second-team selections Zach Foth and Seth Gosse. Despite the departures, Madigan says the Spartans do have 14 letter winners returning, meaning there is significant experience coming back. On offense, Madigan points to players like Eli Leonard, a sophomore, who has earned the quarterback job coming into the new season. Madigan also identifies Jake Davies at receiver, Jared Hoffman and Alex Turner in the backfield and three returning offensive lineman in Ian Treptow, Ethan Rens and Tyler Lovejoy as players to watch on offense. A lot of the same names are expected to step up for the Spartans on defense as well. Madigan points to Treptow and Rens on the defensive line, Kendall Strook at linebacker and Jake Davies, Jared Hoffman and Cooper Kastenschmidt at defensive back as players to watch.

As for where the 2018 Spartans fit in to this year’s Flyway Conference, Madigan says that’s to be determined. “As with last year, you never know. That’s where the matchups come about. We have to really emphasize growing up in those first two games. With the skills we have and the returning offensive line we have, I think we have great potential” Madigan said.
