Results from the 40th Vail Lacrosse Shootout: Day 1

The first day of the Vail Lacrosse Shootout's 40th tournament saw action in just one division, the Men's Masters (30+). Last year's champion, Team Hulu, moved on to the Championship Bracket. Joining Hulu in the semi-finals Jagermeister, Team Adrenaline and Olympic Club all won their first round games in convincing fashion.

Sunday will see a tremendous increase in the amount of "ball" being played in the valley as the Shootout action expands to six fields from Vail all the way down to Edwards. Men's and women's Elite brackets are set to begin with 20 teams competing on the men's side and 15 teams in the women's portion of the tournament.
