Summer Tournament Series: Lake Tahoe

The culture of lacrosse is almost as unique as the sport itself.  Most people involved don’t simply play the game, but embrace it as a way of life.  For instance, many post collegiate men’s tournaments feel more like a festival than a competition, where opponents on the field easily slip in to the role of best friends at a BBQ after the game.  Nowhere have I seen this illustrated more completely than at the annual Lake Tahoe Tournament.

University of Montana’s Hanavan Steps Down

The 2009 coaching carousel is still going strong as the University of Montana announced they will be losing the services of head coach Ryan Hanavan.  Hanavan took over the Griz Lax program after a number of successful years at the University of Idaho, but has chosen to pursue a career opportunity earned by receiving a Ph.D. in environmental sciences.

Gilman School – 2009 National Champs

Laxpower recently named their 2009 de facto high school national champion, giving Gilman of Baltimore the honor for a second straight year.  The Greyhounds earned the title by putting together a 15-1 record in the brutal Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association and defeating Calvert Hall (Laxpower #15) in the state title game.

Hey DJ, Play That Track! Oregon State Lax Rap
