Big crowd for LAX Under The Lights

There were chills but plenty of thrills.

Last Monday may have been a bit on the chilly side at Bainbridge High’ stadium — but the bright lights, clear skies and danceable music made for a warm and inviting evening during the fifth annual “LAX Under The Lights.”

More than 65 girls age 5 through 18 took part in the event, led by Bainbridge High’ legendary high school girls lacrosse team.

Varsity captains Kendall Havill and Eleanor King, along with their teammates, put together a program of fun and games including measuring the speed of shots on goal and learning how to perform draws. All participants received T-shirts, candy and a chance to test out lacrosse before the spring season begins.

Bainbridge Island Girls Lacrosse officials announced that registration is now open for youth and high school teams.

This season, the program will offer a kindergarten-second grade team, with practices on Saturdays.
