Some original Lacrosse pioneers are also out there. Aria McGuinness, Foothill class of 2009 is Captain of the girls Lacrosse team at The University of Arizona. She is helping to develop the team past its current club status into a future D1 program. They recently beat UCLA and are a terrific group of players.

This is great to see that Lacrosse is getting some recognition. My boys will be entering high school in a few years and they have been following both schools they said several boys have gotten scholarships to play in the east coast this is awesome.

Congratulations to Jerome Rigor for continuing his lacrosse career at Division 1 Sacred Heart Univeristy. My son played with him on the Norcal Vail team when they were in 7th grade. Back then he played middie and scored 6 goals in one game, a very special player.
