As we have mentioned many times before, Patriot Lacrosse is very greatful for all of the volunteers that help support the program. That applies to VEL as well and we are fortunate that John Hand took some awesome pictures during the game that I am sharing with you. Additionally, thanks to Gene Shearer for taking video of the entire game. I highly recommend that the players watch the video to see where we did things well and where we can improve. One thing that stood out to me especially was that we can get better at first-time ground balls. Please see the links below for the awesome content and thanks to John and Gene!
A few notes on the game this upcoming weekend. First, no need to get there as early as last week, but I am asking that everyone arrive at least 30 minutes prior to game time. That gives us time to check in, get geared up, stretch and hopefully get a short warmup.
This weekend we are playing PVI. I don't want our team to get psyched out by the name on the jersey. Will they be good, yes. Can we beat them, absolutely! This team is made up of 8th and 9th graders and went to overtime against Gainesville/Battlefield last week. We'll be catching them on their second game of the morning which puts us in a good position. We need to be mentally prepared to play but we can definitely play with, compete and beat this team if we give our best effort. Be confident, not cocky!
See you all out there on Saturday
