CitySideLax vs The World: Lacrosse Pentathalon

At Seattle’s CitySideLax Camp, stars Kavanagh, Ratliff, Ghitelman, Snider, O’Dougherty and Corrigan compete in a lacrosse pentathlon!

It’s only been a few short weeks since Drew Snider and Chris O’Dougherty’s CitySideLax, a Seattle-based lacrosse education organization dedicated to growing the game through leagues, travel teams, camps and more, held their Offense vs Defense Positional Camp featuring guest coaches Adam Ghitelman, Scott Ratliff, Matt Kavanagh and a group of current/former NCAA athletes. (Full disclosure, I also serve as the Marketing Director for CSL and this was the using of my resources to make fun content for LaxAllStars.com!) After camp one day, I pulled the group away from the field and into the box for a competition I deemed, CitySideLax vs The World!

With the hopes of a tie, I had an even number of challenges set up: No Angle Shooting, Popping Bottles, Skeet Shooting and Pipes.  I also had 6 insanely competitive lacrosse players available that wanted to put themselves to the test. This is what it looked like…

[/mks_one_half][/mks_col] Lucky for me, and I hope you too, the score ended in a tie after the first four events, forcing OVERTIME! Settling the score would be simple. After every CitySideLax camp, we play anywhere from 1 to 2 hours of 3x and the game would serve as the perfect way to end an epic afternoon of impromptu lacrosse challenges!

Not familiar with the glorious game of 3x?! Here’s how we played:
