    rocks lacrosse

    How's it going? I've lurked here on & off for a while before registering. I'm a lacrosse coach at Trinity High School, ergo the choice of the user name. I casually follow some of the other H.S. sports but my biggest area of interest is lacrosse. I pay the bills by working for a construction company & but my hobby is working to improve the level of lacrosse in the state & also at Trinity. And also posting on message boards now & then.

    You have a great board going here, looking forward to reading a lot & posting some as well Thanks for having me.

    Welcome rocks lacrosse!

    As you've been a lurker here, I'm sure you've discovered what a unique and special place BGP is! If you need any help with anything, please feel free to ask me, or any other mod, or any other poster, for that matter!

    And, you've got to help us increase awarness of lacrosse! I've seen a couple of matches, and I love the sport, but it's woefully under-represented in KY!

    Congratulations on the taking State....(and beating X! :devil: )
    WELCOME AGAIN, AND.....


    GO ROCKS!

    Thanks rockmom, taking state is a great feeling! Agree completely that the game is under-promoted here. With the help of some others throughout the state, we are trying to be the "pied pipers" for lacrosse here.

    4 years ago, there were 80 h.s. boys lax players in Louisville - now there are 350 or so in Louisville, plus another 60 in Lexington. And a team in Glasgow. And there was a student trying to start an intramural league at Covington Catholic. There's similar growth on the girls side as well. And the middle school numbers are growing at an even higher rate.

    So I think the exposure for lax in this area is going to go up sooner than later!

    Welcome. I think you might just be in for a jump in the sport's #s when the NHL Owners replace Hockey with the ALL here in the near future. Best of luck, and enjoy. BGP is a great place to be.

    The post-collegiate club that I play for played WKU last fall. As far as high school teams go, there is a team in Glasgow that started this year & will probably play varsity ball next year - that's the only one I know of.
