07/10/2016: Tournament News:
The 2024 Ladies took the field at Cedar Lane this weekend for the first time since their Laxin Out loud Championship. Well these little ladies would not be denied. Going on a tear through the competition and facing the number one seeded team in the final. Coach Beth led the girls to their second championship in their third tournament together. Great things are already coming from these little wonders, the future is very bright for sure.
The entire mens side of the Club was in Hershey this weekend and the teams shared in a lot of success. The Varsity Grey had a win and two ties playing some of their most inspired lacrosse of the year, while the Varsity Red found themselves in some shoot-outs of their own to pile up a few more victories on the year.
For the JV Red, there were some big tests to their game. building a winning record against some top teams up and down the east coast, while the JV Grey worked towards that common goal of growing their game together once more.
The U15(2020) team went out and battled their way to an undefeated record before falling short in the Championship, but it was an impressive display to watch.
At the same time, the U11 team were pulling together some of their best lacrosse of the season. going an impressive 3-0 on day one of competition, they boys found themselves in position to make it to the Championship for the first time this summer.
But this weekend would belong to the U13. the young men came out and simply did what they have been working on for the entire season. Shut down defense and moving the ball on offense and good things came their way. The men played to an undefeated record in Hershey tot ake the Hogans’ Hershey Championship. We are very proud and know if these boys stay together and continue to grow, there is nothing that will be able to stop them.
The 2017 Ladies saw action this weekend in the prestigous National Recruiting Showcase. They were not deterred by the competition as they turned out a 3-1 record once again. College coaches took note as one pulled our directors aside to let us know she “would take the entire team.” Well, thank you and so would we for the next 20 years if we could.
Only one more battle left for the summer. (sad face)
The U11, U13 and U15 were all attending the MD Lacrosse Tournament at Mcdonogh School this past weekend. If you did not notice the flag, I have no idea how.
(Our latest spectacle. Thank you parents.)
One of our favorite parts of having multiple teams in one spot ist he fact that we can see many of the teams play at once. As Directors, we love attending every game possible. The other love for us is that the teams also get to show support.
Below the U11 watches as the U13 competes on the field. Support, Team, Family are all things that mean a great deal to us. And this is just one example.
The U15 found themselves in the hunt for another Championship, but coming up one step short of the big game.
While the U11 and U13 found themselves in some real wars. The boys played from whistle to whislte and pulled out some wins and also suffered some losses along the way. Each squad played in very tough divisions and saw where they were excelling and areas of opportunity for the upcoming weeks.
Work for the better you each week and you will find him/her.

Down in Poolesville is where we would catch up with the JV Red. They competed in the MAD LAX event, Capital Classic.
The team went 2 and 2 in regular play recording a shut out and losing only by 1 in a game. They were able to move on to a semi final game, but came up short in a close 2 goal game. Still very proud of the work they put in. They faced some serious competition from around the country and showed what’s to come on the big stage for this group.
