For the Townsman
The Cranbrook Varsity and Jr. Varsity Badgers field lacrosse teams are travelling to Bend, Oregon this weekend for the annual ‘Oregon Lacrosse Classic’.
The Badgers teams have been practicing hard three days a week in preparation for the tournament, which features 155 teams from all across the United States and Canada. There are 13 divisions that are named after some of Oregon’s most famous natural landmarks.
The team hired a chartered bus and left early Thursday morning with 31 players and a handful of coaches and parents to cheer them on. Players are excited to be bunking at the dorms at Oregon State University.
The team plans to be home late Sunday or early Monday and the organization will be updating Facebook and Twitter (@cranbrookbadgers) throughout the weekend.
