Washington lacrosse locals Kevin Mincio of Mercer Island Lacrosse and Matt Sauri of Wimmer Solutions completed the first week of "The Ride". The duo are riding cross country to raise money and awareness for the families of fallen soldiers for the Team Jesse Foundation. The journey began in Santa Rosa, California last week at Kevin's comrade and close friend Jesse Williams' grave site, with whom he served in Iraq with. The duo made their way across Sonoma-Napa wine country, the Sacramento Valley, uphill over the Sierra Nevadas, past clear blue Lake Tahoe and are now crossing Nevada's U.S. Highway 50, dubbed "The Loneliest Road In America". They will face scorching heat and a blistering sun as they cross northern Nevada. Along the way they have met several other veterans, bikers and interested people as well as gotten to know the country they call home- America. If you have not heard about the Team Jesse Foundation, visit teamjesse.org for information and to donate, all proceed go to benefiting families of fallen soldiers. You can also follow their blog at teamjesse.org/ride and follow them daily on Twitter @teamjesseorg. To the limit!
The North Sounds summer league registration is underway. Running for six weeks from 6/21 - 7/29 it's a great way to keep that stick in your hand during the summer AND have some fun.
Large crowds filled the stands clad in blue, gold, maroon and white. The championship game comes down to a good old fashioned Battle of the Islands. Bainbridge dawned the fresh blue uniforms that contrasted their slick white Islander counterparts. It was a contested faceoff that Bainbridge won and sticks went flying. Bainbridge settled into their offense and Cam Parker drew a double from behind and fed Jacob Knostman for easy goal. First blood goes to the Spartans. Mercer Island came up with possession and settled into a 1:4. In a motion as easy as Bainbridge's goal T. Claes Johnson found Zac Stickney to even up the score. Doug Mahony drew a double allowing Matt Shields to pop out and score a time and room ripper.
