MadLax, a lacrosse retail store with four locations in the Washington D.C. area, held a Face-Off Competition for incoming high school juniors. The event, held at Georgetown University, was a small part of tryouts for the MadLax All-Star teams this summer.
Lacrosse Playground was able to capture some of the sites and sounds from the competition. See the video of the competition below.
As we watched the athletes compete it was hard not to notice that many of the face-off specialists had Warrior heads. While a couple competitors had Revo Pros, many seemed to use Warrior Blades. The Blade 2.0 and Blade F-Off are both popular among face-off specialists because of the pinch/squeeze you are able to create around the ball.
MadLax also has a video with several rising seniors talking about their college commitments. You can check out that video over at My.LacrossePlayground.com or at Madlax.com.
