Lacrosse tournament this weekend in Destin

Special to The Log

Destin Rockets Lacrosse will be hosting its first home tournament Feb. 8 at the Morgan Sports Center.  

Teams from Louisiana, Tallahassee and Gulf Breeze will be participating in the event.

Games will start on the hour, with the first slated at 9 a.m. and finishing at 5 p.m.

Combining the excitement of hockey and the fast break speed of basketball, Lacrosse is actually the oldest sport native to North America, digging its roots in our history in the Fifth Century.

The Rockets, which will be composed of middle school and high school players, will play a 10-game schedule that runs January through May. Since the league is considered a “club” team, it will not interfere with school sports, although it is a traveling team, so tournaments will be held on the weekends.

For more information about the league or tournament, call Muri Kersanac at 850- 240-0467 or Coach Duke Pope   850-499-8557.
