Girls Lacrosse on the rise in Jenks
By Izzy Pankey, Jenks Tribune Intern
A sport for all ages of girls has started to grow in Jenks, and that sport is lacrosse.
This past Saturday, Jenks Community Ed hosted the girls lacrosse clinic at the Jenks Middle School field. Jenks High School girls lacrosse players spent their day teaching girls of all ages the skills of this fun sport.
Girls from kindergarten through eighth grade learned how to cradle, catch, scoop, pass, and throw. They also got to play several games and learn new drills. Middle school girls also got to practice with their coaches and put their skills to work before their season begins.
Several high school lacrosse girls joined in on the fun and practiced with the girls.
Girls who had never picked up a lacrosse stick were able to come out and try the sport for the first time alongside experienced players.
Through Jenks Community Ed, these girls were able to have a good time and participate in this exciting sport.
The high school team’s season was cut short last year due to the pandemic. However, the team has grown this year and is excited for the new season.
Jenks Community Ed also has boys lacrosse for ages K-12.
The sport is sweeping the nation and is fun for all ages.
