Get To Know The Hop Valley Lacrose Club
Direct from Ryan McCloskey’ (of HVLC) email: I’m a former MCLA’er (Chapman 00-04) and I run the Hop Valley lacrosse club in Eugene, OR. As you can see in the article published by University of Oregon student publication, Ethos Magazine, we are comprised of mainly University of Oregon students and alumni. We play in the Cascade Lacrosse League. We’re currently 9-0 and we’re just trying to grow the game in the great Northwest.

We all know that Gary Gait loves growing both the men’s and women’s game all across the country, and seeing him in person is a treat for anyone who loves the game. Word has it that Gary will be at the Oregon Select Shootout @ Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District all day on May 22nd and be at the Oregon Girls High School final four on the 23rd.
