Gilbert Tigers Lacrosse

(Taking a knee during a game)

We have been living, breathing, talking
and going to lacrosse since October.
It has been a very busy season!
We have loved every minute of it!

Look at that face...totally in his element.
Alec has always longed for a BIG brother
or even a brother.
He was on a team with 30 boys.
Pure Heaven for him!

Alec was one of four that were
still in elementary school.
The rest of the team were
7th and 8th graders.
He had a LOT of BIG brothers!

Not only did they practice and play together,
but a few of them would invite him to hang out.
OH, boy!! Cloud nine for Alec!

This picture says it all!

The boys and their families were amazing!
We feel so fortunate to have been a part
of this incredible group.

The coaches were incredible and
Alec has learned so much.
Being his first year in Lacrosse there
was some apprehension.
Alec grew leaps and bounds in his skills
and loved to play in each and every game.

This last weekend was tournament for
the end of the Jr High Lacrosse season.
We played our first game on Wednesday and won.
Play continued on Saturday in Scottsdale,
where we played an amazing team from
Tucson and lost.
That was tough for the boys.
The team had only lost one game all season.

They rallied themselves and went on to win
and make it to the Championship game
to meet the Tucson team again.

The boys played hard!
They played 4 games Saturday
with only a half hour break in between
one of them.

All the work, dedication and coaching paid off.
The Gilbert JHS Tigers are Champions!!
The first State Lacrosse Win for Gilbert!

What a happy team!

Alec had such a fabulous time....
making friends, learning, playing hard
and being part of an incredible team!!

We have cherished memories of
this fabulous Lacrosse season,
numerous BIG brothers for Alec,
and a new passion....

Good Job Gilbert Tigers JHS Team!!
Congratulations on a
13-2 season and
State Champions!
