    LAFAYETTE — As his athletes got off the bus on May 17, Conifer head coach Paul Taylor became emotional and for a good reason.
    His Lobos had just been eliminated in the 4A state boys’ lacrosse state semifinals with a 17-4 loss against top-seeded Dawson. One-by-one, his seniors walked over and embraced in a hug along with words of encouragement.
