Tablerock Tournament 2011 Recap

The ILOA would like to take a moment to thank all our officials for coming out and being involved in making the Tablerock Tournament 2011 a success. We would also like to thank the coaches, players and parents for coming out and supporting the sport of lacrosse here in Idaho. While the weather wasn’t necessarily perfect, it certainly was a far cry better than the snow we saw last year. Regular season 2011 is just around the corner! Best of luck to all the teams in their regular season play.
