The Brighton High School girls’ and boys’ lacrosse organizations will host a Lacrosse Play Day in Cottonwood Heights on March 4 at Mountview Park from 10 a.m. to noon. The event is intended to introduce the sport to kids of all ages through demonstrations, clinics and other fun activities involving lacrosse. The girls’ and boys’ organizations rely on private funding to facilitate the sport for junior high and high school-age students in Cottonwood Heights.
Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the country, and Brighton students have been among some of the brightest stars in the state. Both the girls’ and boys’ teams have won state titles in the past five years, and have produced some of the top lacrosse athletes in the country. The City Council also presented the girls and boys organizations with a proclamation during a meeting on Feb. 28 in support of the event.
