Farragut hosts lacrosse tournament


Admiral Farragut Academy hosted a lacrosse tournament this past weekend featuring the youth teams from the Saint Petersburg Dragons Lacrosse Club and the Sarasota Seahawks Lacrosse Club. BlueJackets coach Adam Deisley was instrumental in staging the event on Al Ross Football Field that began early Saturday morning and lasted throughout the day. There were five games that ranged from the 9-and-under age group to the 15-and-under group. Deisley estimated close to 500 people attended the games throughout the day.

“It was an incredible day and a great way to showcase the school and the campus,” said Deisley, who is in his third year as the lacrosse coach. “There was tons of positive feedback and I can’t say enough about the people who helped run the event, including St. Pete Lacrosse Director Kerry Dano, the Collins Family, Stephanie Wood, Tom Beck and the current lacrosse players and students of Farragut.”

Coach Deisley is in the process of creating a lacrosse camp for the month of July in which he hopes to run for two weeks. More details will be posted on the website and the Facebook page when the plans are finalized.
