IMG_0949 On Wednesday afternoon, a couple of dozen young girls gathered on the Orange Fairgrounds for lacrosse camp.

The sport has grown in popularity over the past five years and boys and girls of all ages are getting into it as much as others their age flock to the soccer and baseball/softball fields.

One little girl wandered into the gazebo where I was working and told me how much she wanted to play when she gets older.
