From US Lacrosse
US Lacrosse has announced the girls’ lacrosse teams that will compete in the 10th annual US Lacrosse Nationals, fueled by Chipotle, Friday through Sunday at DE Turf Sports Complex in Frederica, Del.
Twenty-four teams from nine states will bring approximately 1,000 players and families to “America’s First State” for a weekend of high-level competition in a fun, professionally run environment (game schedule). The tournament features many of the best-run clubs and organizations that provide playing opportunities for the 300,000-plus youth members of US Lacrosse.
“We’ve reached 10 years for this event, and it remains one of our most-anticipated each year,” Kim Rogers, director of events at US Lacrosse, said. “We appreciate the support of our partners and are looking forward to giving the traveling teams and families a great experience in Delaware.”
Age divisions are 14U, 13U and 12U, and Synthesis Multimedia Productions will stream live each division’s championship game on the US Lacrosse Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels.
