NEW YORK — Maverik athlete and LXM PRO attackman Billy Bitter is headed off to Croatia to help grow the game of lacrosse overseas.

Billy will be running a series of clinics with the Zagreb Bulldogs Men's Lacrosse team, refereeing tournament games between Croatia, Austria, Serbia and Germany as well as outfitting 40 youth players from head-to-toe in equipment generously donated by Cascade, Maverik and the Manhasset PAL (Nassau County (NY) Police Activity League).

"I could not be more excited about our trip," said Bitter. "We are really looking forward to sharing our love for lacrosse and helping to establish a foundation for the sport to grow. I would like to thank everyone at Maverik, Cascade and the Manhasset PAL for their generous donation and making our trip possible."

Joining Billy on his Croatian trip will be his cousins Bobby Duvnjak, a three-time high school All-American at Manhasset who just completed his freshman year playing defense for Harvard. Johnny Duvnjak, also an All-American at Manhasset and a captain at Middlebury will be making the trip along with Harvard sophomore's Sean McDonogh and Deke Burns.

"I am confident we will all look back on this trip in the years to come and remember the great time we had and be proud of our contributions to establishing lacrosse in Croatia," added Bitter.
