Weekend wrap-up, next week

Posted by Claremont Lacrosse on Dec 02 2019 at 05:47AM PST in 2019-20

Evening all -hope Sunday was restful and warmer than the weekend was but..what a weekend it was was!!! 40 games, 4 teams playing, 84 student athletes representing Claremont lacrosse and one of the more memorable Friday Night Lights that I can think of. What an exciting double OT win and what a great game. See attached celebration pic!!

Before I forget I want to thank so many people ad don’t want to forget any so I’ll start with a generic thank you to every single Claremont
lacrosse parent as well as the players. All had an integral part in the success of the 15th annual Spartan Shootout.

Special thanks to the following people who had a slight bigger role in the organizing and success of the weekend;

Lindsay Pepper for her countless hours and emails to help coordinate the volunteers and make that seamless as well as her own volunteer hours on the score table. A huge job that is thankless.

Mike Verhagen, Kevin Morrison, and their ‘crews’ for set up and take downs of the fields and having them ready to play.Mike also took on the supervisory role of Topaz for Sat

Michelle Glanfield for once again producing an amazing program (and her sons graduated years ago?!!?!?)

Cheryl Brown for her awesome job of securing and arranging sponsors as well as the coordination of flowers, programs, and parents for Friday Night Lights (another graduated son from 2017)

Gary Johansen (and Marilyn) for taking the FNL pics for our seniors (these will be available for our gr 12’s and their parents fairly soon)

Colin Plant for his work as emcee, Pete Westhaver for his help with FNL, and the many Claremont staff that attended and helped with Friday Night Lights

Claremont girls lacrosse and Coach Taylor and Jenner for their help with the gate and concession

The referees for their willingness to do more games than normal due to a shortage

And of course your Claremont Coaching staff Chris McKay and Liam Kelly (and Denton Macdonald)

I think that is all but if I left anyone out I apologize and do thank you
