Lacrosse once had to only worry about the occasional storm in the Spring to interrupt play but as the sport has expanded into the later seasons the risk of encountering cold wintry weather has become a constant worry for tournament directors. An usually early cold front sweeping the United States has unfortunately affected our partner’s event down in Dallas cancelling all games today. We are hoping for clear skies so the competition can be completed for your friends. Hang in there Dallas Lacrosse!
