It’s been yet another great week of lacrosse content on the good ol’ internet! We’ll recap ALL of the week’s must-know action by topic so that you, the lacrosse enthusiast, doesn’t miss a thing. One of the best posts of the week had to be Nicole Dyrdahl’s A Unique Game: Tradition and History in Lacrosse. It was inspiring and vitally important to the GTG movement.
And speaking of the Grow The Game movement… we can’t forget that this was the week where we announced the first annual Grow The Game Award winner! This is going to be a yearly award, and it promises to only get better with time! Congrats to KF for his win, and thanks to KF for all the works he’s done to GTG! Oh, and The State of the Game: Baseball Rebuttal was classic!
