Hey folks, just thought I'd point out to anyone potentially interested in a bit faster-paced sports experience this weekend (no knock on our shop-wrecking Baseball team here), I would encourage you to come check out a pretty entertaining club sport if you haven't done so yet-- Lacrosse. This weekend your Longhorn lacrosse team begins playoff action (after receiving a first-round bye) Saturday at 12:30pm against Texas Tech, a team they should easily steamroll, en route to the LSA Championship game against the winner between Texas State and SMU on Sunday at 3:30pm (go Bobcats! I will be cheering for them this weekend as my brother's a captain on that team).
The games are located at Austin-Westlake Chaparral Stadium, and are generally $5 if not free to attend for the day/weekend. Schedule can be found here. Last year the Longhorns won the State title and advanced to nationals, the MCLA Sweet Sixteen before falling to Michigan 11-5.
If you've never seen a game of lacrosse in person I would definitely give it a try. The action is fast and odds are you'll see some pretty impressive trick-shots-- if you're a hockey fan, especially.
