From Ed Krinsky: This illustration was reprinted from the Septmber 30, 1876 issue of "The Graphic," a British illustrated newspaper first published in 1869. The illustration, entitled "The Game of Lacrosse: Position of the Players," was published during a visit by Canadian players, including some Iroquois Indians, to the British Isles during the summer of 1876. Among the spectators at one of the games was Queen Victoria. The tour was arranged by Dr. George W. Beers, a Montreal dentist, who published a book entitled "Lacrosse, the National Game of Canada." I have the original copy of "The Graphic," from which the illustration was reprinted.
From Nicky Lecher: Park City Junior Lacrosse Girls Team (7th/8th grade), following in the footsteps of the successful high school Varsity and JV girls lacrosse teams, wrapped up an undefeated season by beating Riverton in the Utah Lacrosse Association junior championship. Head Coach Mike Acee (former UNC player and collegiate national championship) led the team to win the pre- season tournament, decisive wins in all 10 regular season games, and a 11-3 championship victory. The teams outstanding performance throughout the year was a combination of great teamwork and leadership. The team racked up a staggering 189 goals over 12 games, yet gave up only 42 goals. The success of the team is attributed to powerful offensive play with goals from multiple players, an unstoppable defense, and a remarkable goalie.

From David Diamonon: A few months after moving to Moscow, Russia in 2007 to work for Chicago-based Amsted Rail, I founded Moscow Lacrosse Club. Initially, the club's activities were limited to gatherings of a handful of expatriates like myself just to throw a ball around. Since last summer, a core group of young Russians expressed their interest in the game. With a little bit of help from myself and some other foreigners, they've learned the fundamental skills of lacrosse, and we've played weekly pick-up games through the sub-zero temperatures of the Russian winter and the almost unheard-of 90F+ temperatures this summer. That's dedication. Team photo taken after a pick-up game.
