“It was another amazing weekend playing in the US Lacrosse Girls HS National Tournament. South Florida has now won back to back championships in the Tuscarora Division. I’m so proud of this group. 22 players came together and played as one unit. It’s always tough to make a team gel with only 1 practice, but these kids played so unselfish and kept the ball moving!”
In the last two years, South Florida is now 8-0 at the US Lacrosse Girls HS National Tournament.
