Decatur Tomatoes Shut Down the Carolina Summer Shootout!

The weekend of July 13, Decatur Active Living’s, “Decatur Tomatoes” Lacrosse team, packed their lacrosse gear and headed to Greensboro North Carolina to participate in the Carolina Summer Shootout.  These young men represented Decatur Active Living well by leaving with a 5-0 tournament record.  The team played hard during the games with games ending in close scores and  with two ending in a  “Braveheart” (Brave Heart  Phrase A fun alternative to overtime played in some lacrosse summer and charity tournaments where two players from each team take the field, a goalkeeper and a middie. The two middies face off and go one on one full field until one scores). 
    
 This was a great opportunity for many of the upcoming high school juniors and seniors to showcase their skills for college coaches and to give the younger players an opportunity to play more competitive lacrosse. At the end of the tournament the coaches chose 40 of the top players to showcase their skills in an All Star game. Four of these players came for the Decatur Tomatoes team (Ben Rigger, Nathan Wilinksi, Simeon Johnson and Nick Bentley).  Congratulations to Decatur Tomatoes for representing Decatur well and a special thanks to Wytch Rigger and Connor Stubbs, former and original DAL and DHS lacrosse players who spent their Summer Break from college to coach these young men.
