Updated – Sisters Annual Lacrosse Invitational: GTG In Action

7 - Published May 10, 2011 by in High School

Over the weekend I traveled out to Sisters, Oregon with West Linn High School’s JV squad (along with a 7th/8th Youth Team), to participate in the Sisters Annual Lacrosse Invitational.

When I wasn’t busy eating hamburgers and hanging by the RV provided by some great WLHS parents, I snapped some photos to show how Growing The Game is alive and well in Oregon.

Photo blog time…

30+ players in a school bus at 6:30 am on a Saturday.

Pretty much a miracle that they all made it on time. Even though some were still in their PJ’s…

Nice fields but cloudy skies and the wind was gusting pretty hard.

Somehow we escaped the rain and I even got a little sunburn going.  NICE!

Tall trees and great lacrosse. Each team played 4 games in one day so endurance was key.

There were 16 JV teams at the SALI from Roseburg to Sprague, and all the way out to Bend & Summit HSs as well.

UPDATE: Even Montana and SW Washington were represented! GTG to the max.

The West Linn Lions JV's relaxing and waiting for our next game. Lots of characters in this bunch.

Sadly I wasn't able to snap any photos of our squad in action because the team was too busy winning the whole tourney.

The high altitude was a factor all day, but the team gutted out a 4-3 victory over Lake Oswego in the Championship game. Great job, boys!

Update: There’s even additional coverage from the Sisters Nugget Newspaper with some great quotes from Bill Rexford, head coach of the Sisters HS Outlaws. Over 1,000 players came out last weekend.
