Show LAS Your Old School: 1971 Oxy Lax

This week’s Old School takes a quick look at what just might be Occidental College’s first lacrosse team from 1971. California lacrosse has been growing for a while it seems! Grow The Game!

Last week Jeff took us on a trip down memory lane.  We saw the beginnings of lax for Jeff in Idaho, and we’re sticking with that theme today: Beginnings!  After all, excellence has to start somewhere!

This week’s Old School features the 1971 lacrosse team from Occidental College.  We’ll let Oxy alum, Jesse Roberts explain:

Not my first season, but it may have been the first season for Occidental Lacrosse.  I am an alum from ’07, and I ran into the grandkid of someone who was on this ’71 team who sent me the picture.  With Oxy looking stronger and deeper this season than they have in a while it’s good to know that the roots run deep.
