Oregon Civil War...Lacrosse Style

Saturday, April 20th 5pm, West Linn High School

Well it's the time of year for the Ducks and the Beavers to go at it on the lacrosse field.  On Saturday April 20th University of Oregon and Oregon State will face off in the annual Civil War Lacrosse Game.   The game will be played at West Linn High School.  Oregon State is the home team and has elected to play the game in the Portland Metro area.  Game time is 5pm.  There will be raffles for equipment and camp scholarships at halftime.  Look for a fastest shot contest as well.

Each team has many players that played HS lacrosse in the state of Oregon: 31 on Oregon State and 11 play for the U of O.  Both teams are ranked in the top #15 in the nation for MCLA Division I.

This is a great chance to see the top 2 college programs in the state play as well as watch many former OHSLA players perform at the next level.

Iroquois Lacrosse Program Clinic

Saturday, April 20th from 1-5pm, Lincoln High School

With the hi-tech sticks, gloves, and helmets used today, one can easily forget that Lacrosse is the oldest sport in North America, dating back to the 1400's (and many say much earlier).  This year Portland has the unique pleasure of hosting a clinic instructed by Cam Bomberry and Kevin Sandy of the Iroquois Lacrosse Program.

This clinic will be for both Middle and High School level players.  In addition to drills and lacrosse tips, the session promises to provide main stream lacrosse players with a unique cultural perspective of the spirit of the game.  All proceeds from the clinic will go to support the growth of lacrosse in Oregon's Native communities.

For details check out the Clinic Outline and register on-line on the Oregon Native Youth Lacrosse Clinic registration page.

Come learn the The Haudenosuanne Way and help fund the expansion of lacrosse!

Fritz Hayes
Frederick "Fritz" Hayes, a lacrosse parent who later became an official, was a tireless champion for the growth of the game in Oregon through his service on the board of the Oregon Lacrosse Officials Association and support of official training for the Oregon Youth Lacrosse Association.

In Fritz's honor, the Oregon High School Lacrosse Association is kicking off the 2013 season with a first time ever event. Last year's four semi-final teams (Lake Oswego/Lincoln/Lakeridge/Sunset) have been asked to open the new lacrosse season at the "Fritz Hayes Classic".

The reason for creating this unique venue: To (1) honor Fritz, a departed member of the Oregon Lacrosse family, (2) create a fund raising opportunity for youth lacrosse, and (3) promote the game of lacrosse to the media and sports community in Oregon.

The event will be hosted at the Lake Oswego HS field on March 9th. The first game will feature reigning state champion Lincoln against perennial power Lakeridge at 1pm. Next the Sunset Apollos, coming off their third championship game appearance in three years, will face the Lake Oswego Lakers at 4pm.

The Oregon Lacrosse Officials Association is heading up the volunteer/fund raising effort at the venue. The donation for admission is $5 for adults and $1 for students, which will cover both games. There will be concessions available as well as raffles for prizes generously donated by the community. All proceeds from the event will go to supporting youth lacrosse and the growth of the sport in Oregon.
