Time for some Relaxin’ in the Pines

ReLAXin' in the Pines

Editor’s Note: Northern Arizona stops by to announce their first annual Relaxin’ in the Pines HS Lacrosse Tournament to be played this fall. We’ve been to Flagstaff and would GLADLY go back if it meant a chance to play some more lacrosse. Definitely check out this tournament!

In 2013, the Northern Arizona University‘s Men’s Lacrosse team played it’s first year in the MCLA and SLC Division 2. The team was totally self sufficient, funded completely by fees paid to play from the players, as in most cases around the league.

From their homebase in Flagstaff, Arizona, the team would travel in two 12 passenger vans to all their away games, including trips to Southern California and Albuquerque, New Mexico.

We could not have been more proud of the way the season went. We made the first round of the playoffs, only to lose to UCSD.
