The Annual New England Summer Lacrosse Showcase descended on Springfield College last Sunday and provided a great opportunity for players to show their skills in front of college coaches and scouts. 20 college programs were in attendance to watch the 26-team field compete at a very high level. Among the most competitive programs in attendance were the North River Skipjacks and the EMass Hawks. The players had to battle the elements on a rain-soaked morning, but persevered and showed their ability to play hard under any conditions. The event granted high school players the opportunity to play against tough competition and prove that they are capable of competing at the next level.
