Larkin played the sport on the Olympus High School boy’s club team and at Utah State University, where he was president of the men’s lacrosse team. Taylor was the first full-time, paid U.S. Lacrosse chapter executive director in the country, according to Utah Lacrosse Association (ULA) board president Michael O’Malley. The Utah Lacrosse Association is a regional chapter of U.S. Lacrosse, the national governing body of the sport. More than 34 boy’s high school teams and 18 girl’s high school teams competed in the spring 2005 season. Lacrosse is considered the fastest-growing team sport in the country. More information is available at http://www.utahlax.org and http://www.uslacrosse.org. Due to the popularity of the Utah Winter Games (UWG), the Utah Olympic Park has decided to offer a free luge clinic this Wednesday, Jan. 11, from 1-3 p.m. The UWG has not yet offered a luge clinic this season, so this will be the perfect opportunity for people to try this Olympic sport for free. Jon Owen, western regional manager for U.S. Luge, who has been the head coach for the luge team for the past 10 years, will be coaching the clinic on Wednesday. Participants will slide down the last three or four curves of the Olympic track at 35-45 mph. According to Owen, this experience will give participants a better understanding and appreciation of the luge competition during the next Olympics Games. Participants must be five-feet tall and prepared for an intense experience. Please pre-register online at http://www.utahwintergames.org . Check-in for the clinic will begin at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday at the sports services desk in the Day Lodge at the Utah Olympic Park.
