Lacrosse comes to the Grand Cities

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Some east coast flavor is invading the Red River Valley.

Some east coast flavor is invading the Red River Valley. Back in April, the Fargo Warriors made their debut as North Dakota’s first ever high school lacrosse team. Now it appears the trend is hitting the northern end of the valley.

The Grand Cities lacrosse club will start Thursday at Lions Park. The club will be holding skill clinics every Tuesday and Thursday for the rest of the month. Organizer Brent Lindstrom knows it is a hockey community, but says lacrosse will only help on the ice.

Participation in lacrosse nationwide at the high school level jumped up 10 percent from 2009 to 2010.
