The LaFayette (NY) High School Lacrosse Alumni Association is pleased to announce their 11th annual alumni event will be held at Tsha’ Thoñ’nhes, Onondaga Nation Fieldhouse on Rt 11A on the Onondaga Nation on Sat Aug 12, 2017.  

 

Both the ‘Legends’ and ‘Soon-to-be Legends’ games will be box lacrosse games - fun & friendly contests held on the turf at this iconic facility.   The lacrosse alumni are excited and honored to be able hold their annual celebration of one of the top high school lacrosse programs in the country at Tsha’ Thoñ’nhes Onondaga Nation Fieldhouse, one of the top box lacrosse facilities in the world.

 

It’s well-known box lacrosse has played a significant role in the success of Lancer lacrosse from its inaugural season in 1960. Dozens of former Lancers have gone on to achieve high levels of success in amateur, professional and international box and field lacrosse, and a number of   current top players in both professional leagues have worn Green & Gold. Most impressively, at least 19 former Lancers have been inducted into various national & international box and field lacrosse Halls of Fame. Box lacrosse represents a large part of why LaFayette boys lacrosse, uniquely made up of the communities of LaFayette and the Onondaga Nation, has helped define tradition and excellence in high school lacrosse.
