Catch lacrosse exhibition match, clinic at Oct. 21 event in Wesley Chapel

The Wesley Chapel Athletic Association will host the second annual I Lacrosse My Heart event, a showcase of women's lacrosse, on Oct. 21 at Wesley Chapel District Park.

The highlight event will be an exhibition match between the women's teams of Saint Leo University and Florida Southern University, followed by a two-hour lacrosse instructional clinic by the college coaches and players. The exhibition costs $5 to watch; clinic participants will need to purchase a $10 wrist band to take part. All gate and clinic proceeds will go to St. Joseph's Children's Hospital.

"I don't know if it was the economy this year or what, but we had to cancel the tournament portion of the event, but we still have the exhibition and the clinic," Wesley Chapel Lacrosse administrator Renee Diaz said. "We're hoping to get the tournament back next year, but for those who come, they'll see some great college women's lacrosse."

Representatives from St. Joseph's will be on hand to educate players about women's heart health as well as Parent Heart Watch, the national voice for sudden cardiac arrest awareness. For information, visit www.wclacrosse.org.
