Editor’s Note: Kim Black has been sending in great college lacrosse photos all year, but this time she’s documenting high school lacrosse in Virginia, specifically the Hampton Roads area. We’ve seen lacrosse begin to grow in and around Hampton already, and Kim’s take on things is really great to see as well!
Lacrosse is not a varsity sport in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area but through the efforts of the Hampton Roads Lacrosse Association, the sport is going strong. The season culminated with both a boys and girls championship game on Friday evening, May 18th at the Dre’ Bly Field in Virginia Beach, Va.
The Williamsburg Warriors girls team traveled from the Peninsula to take on the Cox Falcons from Virginia Beach. The Warriors came out on top to be named the region’s High School Girls Champions. The final score was 9 – 3. For more information on the Hampton Roads Lacrosse Association go to www.hrlax.com.
Congratulations to both teams for making it to the region finals and for Growing The Game of lacrosse in the Hampton Roads area! Well done to all involved! Extra congrats go to the Warriors for winning the league. Time to start prepping for 2013, ladies!
