According to St. Thomas More Head Coach Byrnes Tatford, “STM is honored to again host the LHSLL State Championship Weekend. We have a tremendous support system in our parents and families, as well as the St. Thomas More administration, who all work together to make the weekend a great experience for everyone.
We understand this weekend should be a celebration of lacrosse in the State of Louisiana, so we enjoy hosting the high school teams, families and fans on Friday night for our “Re-Lax” event and are excited to again have a youth 7v7 tournament happening on Saturday before the semi-final games.
We also like to incorporate our faith into the weekend by hosting a Catholic Mass on Sunday morning for all Final Four teams and families to attend before the Championship game on Sunday. We want to thank the LHSLL Commissioner and Board for giving us this opportunity to host the State Championship again this season!”
