2010 CYC LAX

 

        

 Girls

The CYC Lacrosse season started Saturday April 10th.  There are two different programs in action.  The girls program has been structured as an instructional-intramural program.  Forty-five 5th through 8th grade girls get together every Saturday morning from 8am - 10am at St. Gerard Majella for instruction and games.  The instruction is being given by players on the Ursuline Lacrosse team, along with some CYC parents who have taught lacrosse in the past.  The girls are very enthusiastic and eager to learn a new sport.  We thank the Ursuline coach, Dr. Judy Anderson and her girls for helping grow the sport of lacrosse through the CYC.  We hope this program turns into parish teams for girls in the near future.

    

Boys

The boys have 4 parish teams playing lacrosse in the CYC league this year.  The teams are: St. Paul, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, Immacolata and St. Gerard.  The boys started league play on April 10th and will play every Saturday morning at either 9:00am or 10:15am at the Meyer Youth Center.  Click here to see the 2010 Boys Lacrosse Schedule.

2010 CYC Lacrosse Season Summary 

The CYC Lacrosse season began in mid-April with 4 boys teams, about 80 players altogether.  After a few rainouts, the season concluded on June 12th at the Meyer Youth Center (MYC).  The final game of the season matched the 1st and 2nd place teams.  St. Gerard preserved their perfect record (7-0) with an 8 to 3 victory over St. Paul.  Although the game was closer than the score might indicate, the most impressive aspect of the game was how far all these boys have progressed in their lacrosse skills.  This final game had very little resemblance to the first game of the year.  No only have the players individual skills improved greatly, but their knowledge of the game was evident with their team play.  There was a good crowd on hand Saturday morning to enjoy the game.

The CYC Girls Lacrosse program operated under an intramural structure this year, to help introduce the girls to lacrosse and yet offer them a chance to play other opponents.  We had 45 girls start in mid April, but that number dwindled as the rainouts mounted and school let out for the summer.  Those that stuck with it improved their throwing and catching and were starting to grasp the principals of offense and defense.

We hope to expand the program again next spring.  We hope to have more boys teams in the league, and would love to advance from an intramural program for the girls into a regular league situation.  So if you are interested in playing, coaching or managing a parish LAX team, please contact Buzz Swanston at 314 353-8911 ext. 13, or e-mail him at buzzswanston@archstl.org .
