FULL Championship Game Video!!!! The Salt Shakerz made it back to the Finals of the Mardi Gras Lacrosse Tournament, trying to win their third straight title in NOLA. Voltron came down to the Big Easy from Upstate New York with other ideas! The fans got a great game to watch even though it was raining, but since it was also pretty warm, no one was complaining, except maybe the refs.
I don’t know about you, but I am beyond excited for the FIL World Championships this Summer in Denver. 38 teams from around the world will descend on Colorado for two weeks of lacrosse action, and by the end of the third week in July we’ll have a new World Champ! Will it be the US? Canada? Will the Iroquois surpass everyone? Whatever happens, it’s going to be superb.

In November, Team USA players visited San Clemente for a boys lacrosse clinic. This past weekend, San Clemente once again played host to a US Lacrosse clinic, this time a girls clinic coached by women’s national team players. MaxLaxOC was at both events, and captured some great footage.
Lax School has been killing it with old videos thanks to Billy Daye, Bill Millman, and Randy Fraser. These guys have stacks of VHS being converted to YouTube videos, and their most recent unveiling, of the 1992 Vail Finals, is another gem.
The Minnesota Swarm made the trek to Rochester, NY to take on the Knighthawks in preseason NLL action, and the game was exciting from the get go. If the regular season lives up to the goodness that was this scrimmage, the National Lacrosse League is in for a great year.

The lacrosse world championships traveled down under to Perth, Australia in 1990 but playing in the Southern Hemisphere didn’t do much to change the pecking order for national teams. Canada and the US obviously matched up for a great game and the video picks up the play with the US up 5-2 early in the second quarter.
A few weekends ago, the Adrenaline High Rollers: SoCal recruiting event took place at Orange Coast College. Our friends at MaxLaxOC attended the event and put together two awesome videos, including a video of the High School All-Star game.
It was my first time fixing up a woodie, but the stick came out great, and throws on a dime. It was so nice that I convinced myself I could shoot a skeet pigeon out of the air… I did come pretty close!
LaxAllStars.com, led by Billy Nguyen, Joe Barile, John Ray, and Justin Otto moved to 2-0 with a tight 11-10 win over Rudy Martinez’ Brooklyn Dodgers squad. Jeff Melnik, the creator of the video, is Brooklyn’s goalie. The Gotham Goats moved to 1-1 with a win over Team America, who drops to 0-2 early in the year.
Ivan Negrojević sent over another killer video from Serbia about the growth of lacrosse in the country. The video also features Brian Gorodeztky, a Canadian player living in Belgrade, who brought lacrosse to Serbia. In case you need some English to understand what’s happening, Brian provides it.
