A day devoted to Lacrosse….

Spent most of the day traveling to various lacrosse fields for LaxSplash. This is Madelyn’s first year participating in this tournament, and it has been a lot of fun for both the parents and for the girls. Game one was extremely exciting, and we beat a tough team from Ocean City by a score of 8-7. The skies had cleared enough for the game to begin on time, but the onslaught of rain from these past 5 days left the fields and surrounding areas extremely muddy. No worries…It was great to get the game in!

Here are a few shots of Game One. Madelyn is no. 4. . . .

This was the first score of the game…

Madelyn’s defender was a wee bit bigger than her!

As Madelyn commented on this photo, that’s why they call it lacrosse!

I got your back!

I love the intensity in her eyes in this photo…

The second game was played at the Timonium State Fairgrounds, which served as the main location for the event. The fields were in pretty bad shape, and they were much longer than the fields the girls have been playing on all year. Still, they put forth a solid effort in a close loss to Carroll Manor.

Another score for Loch Raven!

We followed the games with great snoballs from SnoAsis in Timonium before heading home to grill hot dogs and hamburgers for a late dinner…Wonderful day!
