Glen Ridge Athletic Association lacrosse tournament a success – Essex News Daily
GLEN RIDGE, NJ – On Sunday, June 5, the inaugural Glen Ridge Athletic Association Tournament of Champions for the first and second year boys lacrosse clinic was held.
The day began with fifth-grader Alice Rayner’s thunderous rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The entire event was announced with background music by the voice of GRAA, John Murphy.
Six teams competed in a round robin to show off the skills they had acquired over the season.
The winning team was “Georgia”, who defeated “UMass” in an overtime thriller.
After the game, the eighth-grade travel team played and beat the GRAA coaching staff to celebrate a terrific season.
The future of lacrosse at Glen Ridge continues to look bright.
