“HALO MOJO” results in a Runner Up Finish at the 13th Annual Dan Anderson Lacrosse Classic
This past week our Alpharetta Junior Raider Select team traveled to Birmingham, Alabama for the 13th Annual Dan Anderson Lacrosse Classic. This tournament is a tradition with our Alpharetta Junior Raider program. I am extremely proud to say that the Junior Raiders had their best showing in the school’s history.
The Raiders finished 2nd overall losing in a very contested championship with our rival the Roswell Hornets. The Junior Raiders were the # 1 overall seed when Pool play was completed going 5-1. Alpharetta beat Altoona 4-3 to advance to the Finals where they faced Roswell in the Championship.
Even more impressive was our 3-0 Braveheart victories on Saturday and Sunday. Please take a moment to congratulate these players when you see them these next few weeks. Also a big thank you to our 3 Coaches this past weekend, Coach Stan Finnerty, Coach Dan Baldwin and Coach Doug Melton. Parents as always thank you for your time and energy in creating a great atmosphere and time for all that attended the tournament.
GO Junior Raiders!!!
