Springtime means lacrosse in our household. While Ryan has given up playing this year in order to bulk up and prepare for football, Patrick has taken to the sport like a duck to water. As a seventh-grader, he plays on the combined seventh/eighth team at Bay Middle School. We're still learning the rules of the game, but it is very fun to watch. Here is Patrick, a midfielder or "middie," under pressure from Mentor players as he runs down the field with the ball. The Rockets won both games in last week's tri-meet against Mentor and then Gilmour Academy.
