This season, a new team has added its name to the Utah Lacrosse Association lineup. Organizing a team from the ground up is a difficult task in any sport, but for Coach Darrell Robinson the first season of the Herriman High School Girl’s lacrosse team is a passion.

Coach Robinson’s love for the sport began years ago when his oldest son began playing lacrosse. Robinson followed his sons’ games all through high school and he is proud that his son now plays for Utah Valley University. The lacrosse roots spread wide in the Robinson family. After his son went off to college, one of Robinson’s daughters started playing, and that is when his involvement was really set in motion. He initially coached for the Bingham Miner’s Junior Varsity girls team, and he helped start their youth program. After Bingham, he started working with the Utah Lacrosse Association as member of the board on the girl’s division of the ULA. He was elected Vice President of the ULA in 2009 and ULA President in January 2011.

The BYU Cougars kicked off their 2011 campaign with a big win over Boise State in Provo, Utah on Saturday. The Cougars won 17-3.

BYU (1-0) and Boise State (0-1) were rusty out of the gate. Both teams were taking poor shots and missing the net completely to begin the game. However, BYU attackmen, Ted Ferrin, made his mark early, and showed why he was picked to be a captain for the Cougars. Notching 2 goals and 2 assists in the first quarter, Ferrin was part of every Cougar goal in the first quarter.

The Fremont Silverwolves will have a new look on the sidelines this season. The Silverwolves hired Dee Morse to take the helm in 2011.

Morse didn’t play lacrosse when he was younger because it wasn’t available at this school. Morse began coaching in 2004, when he took on the the 5th and 6th grade boys and also started a 7th and 8th grade team in the same year which he admits “…made Saturdays a little crazy.” Morse stayed with the 5th and 6th graders when they went to the 7th and 8th grade team.

The 2011 season could get very exciting for all high school lacrosse teams in Utah. House Bill 218 is a Bill that “…modifies the Student Clubs Act regarding a club’s access to school facilities.” The Bill would essentially let high school lacrosse teams gain access to their schools fields without incurring a cost.
