For high school Lacrosse fans, Friday evening’s “double-header” at Villanova University proved to be a great way to start this year’s Memorial Day weekend… and for Conestoga team members, families and friends, they couldn’t have asked for better results with the district’s top-seeded Pioneers — often ranked in the Top 20 nationally this year — taking the PIAA 2009 District One crown in the AAAA division with a 7-4 victory over Downingtown East.
We started the twilight/night LAX doubleheader photographing the Patriots from Central Bucks East in their 6PM match against Springfield (Delaware County)… then stayed for the 8PM championship match pitting Conestoga against Downingtown East. The action was intense and fast-paced throughout the entire evening — just what you’d expect from the top 4 teams in the district tournament. And for Conestoga and Downingtown East fans not familiar with our photography coverage, we’ve produced one of our multi-media Webshows highlighting the evening’s championship game action — setting our close-up still images to high-energy music. So turn up the volume, click on the “play” icon below, and enjoy the show!!!
We’ll also be creating an online image gallery, PIAA District One Mens Varsity LAX 2009 Championship, which includes complete photo coverage of the District One championship match. (Passcode for this image gallery is “PIAA” to be entered in all uppercase letters when prompted.)
Looking ahead… the PIAA’s Men’s LAX tournament begins immediately after the Memorial Day Weekend, with Round 1 on Tuesday, May 26th. Click here for the State Tournament bracket.
Meanwhile, we wish everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!!!
