Jamaica Lacrosse Falls to U.S. Squad in 1st Friendship Games

On the girl's side of the experience at the Jamaica Friendship Games the teams were mixed, putting Jamaicans and Americans on both teams in a short demonstration scrimmage for the Jamaican sporting community. Deja Ricketts (St. Hughs HS) led the way with a game high two goals to lead Team Bolt to a 3-2 win over Team Lightening.

"This lacrosse camp has been the highlight of my summer and I am looking forward to starting the school year and helping form the team at my high school," said Ricketts.

The first annual Jamaica Friendship Games served as the culmination of a summer filled with lacrosse and development in Kingston. The Lacrosse Volunteer Corps program ran a summer long lacrosse camp serving over 150 aspiring lacrosse players in Kingston, Jamaica. Visiting camp counselors ranged in age and experience from Division I coaches to aspiring high school athletes. Together, as part of the Lacrosse Volunteer Corps program, they set the stage for what is expected to be an exciting school year as a fall league has been planned and an official spring season is being planned.
