The Bishop Kelly Knights men’s lacrosse team left Boise, ID at 4pm on Thursday afternoon and headed for Ely, Nevada. They arrived in Ely around 10:30pm and sent the players to bed. Wake up call was 7am, and they took off for Las Vegas by 8, arriving around 12:30pm on Friday afternoon.
The weather has been great there – 70 and sunny. Friday night, the BK Varsity played Henderson, a local team, (at 7pm) and the JV played Judge Memorial out of Salt Lake City at 8pm. So many HS lax teams here right now. Right here. Right now.
Park City pre-game huddle
Park City vs. Rivington
More PC - Rivington
Park City on O.
More Park City offense!
Olympus clearing against Judge. Both teams are out of SLC, Utah.
We played Green Valley, a local team, and lost 11-7. Apparently 3000 kids go to GV compared to our 650. They definitely weren’t short on athletes. Both of GV’s coaches are US Lacrosse Hall of Famers, so that was cool opportunity from a coach’s perspective.

The fuel of champions
Big crowd here today at the Best of the West!
Pabst Blue Ribbon Head Wrapz... saw this in NOLA too!
Maverik Head Wrapz. Sick.
A little bit more. Special!
We played Olympus out of SLC at 10am this morning and won 4-2. Offense moved the ball nicely and d middies stepped it up. Out goalie, Craig Patrick, was an absolute wall. (Editor’s Note: giving up 2 goals? I’d say so!)
Shot of the shooting cage. Blake Bateman going for 90.
We've got a lefty!
A little tweety from BKLax! Nice Win, boys!
Jordan (white) vs. Alta (black)
More Jordan-Alta action as the ladies look on.
Saturday AM (Nice and Early!):

A little early morning visit to the tent!
Can't tell which is prettier: Sunset or rise. Thoughts?
I'd totally rock one of these. Reebok Houndstooth.
