It all began in the Summer of 2010. I was hired to be the News Editor for CollegeLAX.us which was a site that covered the MCLA. After a few months of learning the ropes, I decided that CollegeLAX could be (and should be) replicated on a local level. Enter ULN. At the time it was just my wife and I at home. We were both working full-time. I was a junior developer at work and my other commitments were minimal. Now we have two beautiful little girls, I am the project manager and main developer at work and my other commitments have increased. With that said, it’s time for me to pass the torch.

HS Team

212 Lacrosse of Park City, Utah participated in the Warrior Vail Shootout June 15-18.  This tournament is widely considered the toughest test for western players annually.  Vail draws teams from the entire country including Baltimore, Maryland.   212 entered 2 teams; Boys HS Elite and Boys U13.

The 212 Select HS Boys’ team was very strong throughout the tournament.  Typically playing against competition one and two years senior, the team finished 3rd in goal differential, and 6th overall out of 16 teams. They missed a shot at the championship after losing 5-9 to eventual champion Looney’s.  Looney’s was comprised of all Calvert Hall and Loyola HS players from Baltimore, Maryland. Two of the finest HS teams in the nation. The future is bright for the 212 Select HS team.

The 212 Select U13 Boys’ team also showed well finishing 5th out of 16 teams and 4th in goal differential.  The younger boys missed a shot at the title after losing two one goal games to 3D Colorado, perhaps the West’s best team in the 2020 age group.
