Lacrosse is one of the oldest sports we know of, it dates all the way back to the 17th century. Lacrosse has its origins in a tribal game played by Native Americans and by some other tribes in what is now the United States and Canada. There were hundreds of native men playing a ball game with sticks. The game began with the ball being tossed into the air and the two sides rushing to catch it. Passing the ball was thought of as a trick, and it was seen as cowardly to dodge an opponent. Traditional lacrosse games were sometimes major events that could last several days. As many as 100 to 1,000 men from opposing villages or tribes would participate. The games were played in open plains located between the two villages, and the goals could range from 500 yards to 6 miles apart. The sport was popular hundreds of years ago, and continues to grow today. In 1890, a high school in Scotland started the first girls lacrosse team. It was introduced to England, then eventually made its way to us in America. Lacrosse is a sport with a rich history that is growing and hopefully won’t stop.
Mackenzie Skufca said, “It’s such a fun sport, I could play it all day long.”
