The National Club Lacrosse Championships were held at UMass Amherst over the weekend and the talent level was off the charts.
The National Lacrosse Federation (NLF) invited the top 32 club teams in North American to participate in the National Club Lacrosse Championships which drew a record setting number of college coaches with over 230 in attendance over 3 days. The previous record of college coaches attending a boys lacrosse event was 180.
Our boys from Boston continued with the success our program has had all summer at regional and national events. Our LXC teams impressed at all levels (youth and high school) at the Club National Championships.
