New Facilities for Texas Lacrosse

Depiction of the finished field.

This Friday, November 18th, 2011 will be a big day for Texas lacrosse – it is the grand opening of the Caven Lacrosse and Sports Center at Clark Field. Lucky dogs! Or should I say Longhorns?

After the ribbon cutting ceremony, both Men’s and Women’s teams will be holding scrimmages. Sounds like it’s going to be a big day for the Longhorns. Can’t wait to see some pictures of the Longhorns in action on the new turf.

All done!

Here are some of the features on their new facility, listed on their site.

  • 2.3 acres of synthetic turf
  • 10 exercise stations
  • 2 unisex restrooms

  • Drinking fountains and bottle-filling station
  • Flag plaza
  • Lightning prediction system
  • Pedestrian bridge across Waller Creek
  • Scoreboard
  • Security lighting from dusk to dawn
  • Support storage building
  • Vending machines

The Big Day is Here!


  1. 1. New specs-don’t care, I use a Edge for defense, always have, always will…people will always figure out how to cheat, just like baseball players!
    2. Attended Laxtoberfest and War at the Shore…WATS is awesome, drinking next to the field (not allowed at Laxtoberfest), great lax, tons of games, Jersey Shore nightlubs…funniest thing I saw- guy runs off the field, beer in hand, runs to some trees, lifts up his helmet, yaks all over the ground, slugs some beer, pulls the helmet back down and runs back on! then a little kid played in the puke…typical WATS stuff
    3. Shot clocks are a decent idea, but it’ll be too hard to implement, everyone will have to install them, etc…not every team needs them (‘Cuse, UVA), but some (JHU, Maryland) play a really boring style and I wish they had them….how about instead of a shot clock, you only get 3 touches into the box, basically an automatic stalling call…this would force offenses to get it going in 30 seconds or so every time
    4. I don’t think that game looks great because of the low production value, but it is a start for sure and could lead to something better…don’t have an XBox but I would buy it if I did

    • Because a) I didn’t buy this, in part so we can GIVE IT AWAY to you guys and b) because the Clutch X was so much wider than my Clutch, I thought the Warrior Evo Pro X6 was closer to the shape I was looking for. And I think I was right.
