Jesse in lacrosse gear

Attention: Pro lacrosse scouts...

Jesse and her friend, Allie, decided to play boys lacrosse this spring, so Allie’s mom and I took them down to the local lacrosse shop this weekend in Rosemount (Lavin Lacrosse — check it out. These guys know lacrosse and lax equipment and are great to work with). Above, Jesse is all decked out in her new equipment. She and Allie got everything on the required list … well, except for the cups. Lavin had a boatload of good used equipment for us to pick through. We got some pretty sweet deals on the pads and helmet. Allie even picked up a used helmet that used to belong to local lax hero Colin Achenbach, now a member of the Minnesota Swarm and the new boys JV coach at Eastview HS. Also check out Jesse’s sharp new Maverik stick. No more using dad’s old beat-up Gait stick.
