April 21, 2017

COLUMBUS, Ohio – As the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team enters the final stretch of its season, the Buckeyes are also wrapping up a session of clinics with local organizations to teach the game they love.

Buckeye players and coaches have spent the season out in the Columbus community, teaching the game they are passionate about with local lacrosse organizations. The goal for the initiative is to continue to foster the growth of lacrosse in Central Ohio.

“Having the opportunity to spend time over the past six weeks teaching and growing the game of lacrosse in the community has been extremely rewarding,” Travis Crane, Ohio State volunteer assistant coach, said. “The effort, energy and excitement of the players and coaches over the various organizations speaks volumes to the direction this sport is trending in Central Ohio.”

The clinics reached more than 350 youth and middle school lacrosse players. Participants in the clinics included Hyatts Middle School, Hilliard Predators, Worthington Wolves, Dublin Sells Middle School, Upper Arlington Lacrosse Association, Olentangy Youth Lacrosse and Olentangy Iroquois.
