  4. 4. Personal Relevance Lacrosse is very important to me because I fell in love with it from the first time I saw a high school lacrosse game. It opened new doors for me and allowed me to become more disciplined, more athletic, and a better all around person. Without lacrosse I wouldn’t be as good of friends with the people that are close to me now. It’s time to let the world in on this amazing sport.

  16. 16. Works Cited Atonwah, Wi:se. “Lacrosse: Ancient Haudenosaunee Game.” Editorial. Peace 4 Turtle Island. Kanatiyosh, Dec. 2001. Web. 16 Feb. 2011. a href="" rel="nofollow">‌pages/‌lacrossewise.htm>. The main point to why I am using this article is because it tells a tale about how these two gods played a version of lacrosse in order to see who would be the one to create humans. Teharonhiawakon won and became the Great-Creator.Then after he created the people he passed down stories of their origins and the game of lacrosse.Frank, J. L. “LAUNCHED BY LACROSSE.” Louisville Magazine May 2006: 32-35. Print. J.L. Frank wrote this article to explain that in Kentucky in 1997there was barely any interest in a sport called lacrosse. There would only be about 16 boys trying out for St. X high school in Kentucky. Then heexplains how by 2006 the sport has exploded. There is now almost enough teams to create a league and make it an official sport in Kentucky. Thisarticle was written in 2006 and it says that in 2008 lacrosse is expected to be a varsity sport for boys at the University of Louisville. This relates tomy topic because it shows how lacrosse went from just a sport played by a couple dads back in the day to a huge sport now being played in high schoolsand colleges.McCluney, Eugene B. “Lacrosse: The Combat of the Spirits.” American Indian Quarterly 1: 34-42. JSTOR. Web. 23 Dec. 2010. a href="" rel="nofollow">>;. This Journal entry was very well written about how lacrosse was actually invented. It wasstarted by the French and the Native Americans. They had 2 foot long sticks with the top curved into a loop and the net made out of deer thongs tostop the ball from passing through. The name was termed by the French. The article goes into detail of how the sport was made and and why it wasstarted: for religious reasons. It is perfect for my project because it explains in detail how lacrosse used to be played.
  17. 17. (Continued) McPhee, John. “PIONEER.” New Yorker 22 Mar. 2010: 34-37. Print. John McPhee wrote this to share a coach’s story about how he spread lacrosse. It is relevant to my topic because it explains how lacrosse is spread around the country and how it came to be what it is today. This article is about a lacrosse coach named Bill Tierney who was a successful coach at Princeton but got a call from the University of Denver about who they could find to be their coach. They asked Tierney to coach for them and he decided that he was definitely going to do it since there were only two big lacrosse schools on that side of the Mississippi. He was going to show that lacrosse is not just an Eastern United States game, but anyone in the U.S. can play it and be successful. This pioneered lacrosse and spread it around the country. It is safe to say that more people are playing lacrosse around the country then ever before. It is a fast growing sport and that is what this article is about.Price, S. L. “PRIDE OF A NATION.” Sports Illustrated 19 July 2010: 60-71. Print. S. L. Price wrote this article to show that the Iroquois started andstill play lacrosse today and it explains the history of lacrosse which is why I picked it. This article is about a lacrosse team called the IroquoisNationals who plays internationally and started from just playing with wooden sticks on their sacred lands. The game that we know today is based off ofwhat they played. Lyons leads the team, an Onondaga protector of Native Traditions, and assembles all of his players in the tribe to beat the EnglishNational team. Their main game is box lacrosse which is lacrosse inside a hockey rink without ice. It is currently played all over and there are manyNative American players who play professionally and on a college level for lacrosse.Vennum, Thomas, Jr. “Native American History of Lacrosse.” Editorial.‌. LaxHistory, 2001. Web. 16 Feb. 2011. ahref="" rel="nofollow">>;. This article goes well into detail about the origins of lacrosse andhow it came to be such a fast growing sport today. It talks about how the game used to be played and what kind of role it played in Native Americanculture. All of the tribes have different variations of the game and the present day game is based off of the New England tribes sport.
  18. 18. (Continued) Freed, Stanley A. "Lacrosse yesterday and today."Cobblestone 15.9 (1994): 32. History Reference Center. EBSCO. Web. 16 Feb. 2011. This article goes into detail about the deadlysport, back then not called lacrosse, and how it has developed over the years. The game of lacrosse is not quite like it was whenthe Native Americans first started playing it, we have modified it severely but it is still along the same lines.
