Washington U-15 Team Makes a Statement in Baltimore

"Has there ever been a more far-flug match-up of lacrosse All-Stars than in this US Lacrosse U-15 National Championship?" asks Lacrosse Magazine official blogger Matt DaSilva as he watched Washington's (The State!) U-15 team defeat Florida's Creeks Lacrosse all-stars 8-5.

By the end of the U-15 National Championship match most observers would agree - Team Washington came to play and proved that there is great lacrosse all over the country. Our U-15 entry had 3 Issy/Samm laxers on the squad - Goalie Brady Hahn, Defenseman Phoenix Abernathy and Midfielder Max Saffle. Together, with their WA teammates they powered through the pool play to be one of only two teams from west of the Appalachians to make the Championship bracket. Seeding then handed our team a challenge in the form of the #1 seeded team from Baltimore and the #2 seeded team from Virginia - while they lost to both top seeds they won the recognition of many that Washington state is the lax leader on the Left Coast.

Congratulations to all the players and coaches of Team Washington!!!
