Mid-Summer and Fall Update

To Current and Prospective Fort Hunt Youth Lacrosse Families:

Welcome to the off-season!

We completed a successful 2018 spring season with 560 kids participating and at least four teams making it to the NVYLL championship, winning three. We thank our outgoing Lacrosse Commissioner, Jenn Hare, for three years of passion, dedication, and leadership; leaving us with a healthy program and finishing on a strong note. She is a hard act to follow! Please welcome our new panel of girls lacrosse leadership in Kelly Facer, Erin Hellmold, and Claire Andreas. They can be reached at FHgirlslax18@gmail.com
