Message from High School Coach Greg Zando,
At his point if there is a shortened season, May 5th would be the soonest it would start. Should a season commence, it would consist of 3 regular season weeks with playoffs beginning, the day after Memorial Day. No competitions can occur prior to May 9th, thus 5 days of tryouts/practices. There would be only 4 regular season games, unless earlier games can be rescheduled.
As optimistic as I usually am, I am also a realist and inferring from the tone of the latest Governor's briefing on Wednesday, he laid the groundwork for extending distance-based learning, which if did occur, kills any attempt at a season.
In preparing for a possible season, returning players should access their ORANGE folders from last year, begin reading, if not already, and get/keep a lacrosse stick in one's hands, working on fundamentals either solo or together, without compromising anyone.
Should the High School season NOT occur, there is at least one Summer option, which is a Central Minnesota-based Summer Club Team run by the Minnesota Lacrosse Academy. These have been plans in the works since January for just such a team with interest from 8-9 girls (Becker, Monticello, Rocori, Sartell/Sauk Rapids and St. Cloud) so another 10-11 girls would be needed to reach critical mass for practices and game play.
For anyone interested in playing Summer Lacrosse (June & July, only), please contact Coach Z for more information."
Keeping fingers crossed for May 5th...Stay Safe!
