212 Lacrosse of Park City participated in their hometown tournament June 12-14.

The 212 under-15 boys’ squad, led by Court Durling (University of Virginia) and Mike Acee (University of North Carolina) rolled the competition once again. The team cruised to a 6-0 record, including wins over the second- and third-place teams, Utah Elite and Parker Men’s Club. They finished with 76 goals for and 17 goals against.

Overall, this team has a 33-2 record in five tournament appearances. The boys’ next stop will be Denver, at the World Championships Festival July 13-15.

The 212 U13 boys had a successful weekend, finishing 7-3 and often playing up one, and sometimes two years against their competition. The 212 U11 team also played up one and two years, holding its own in all but one game. The future looks bright for this young, talented group.

"212 continues to play for two former teammates of mine at North Carolina, Neill Redfern (battling cancer) and Eric Seremet (recently widowed)," Acee said. "Our kids break every huddle with ‘S14.’ The acronym stands for Eric’s last name and Neill’s number at Carolina. The message for the kids to play for someone other than themselves is unifying and they all continue to play very hard for Eric and Neill.

"I’m extremely proud of all the 212 kids. As always, a big thank you to the entire 212 Lacrosse community. The support the parents show myself and our staff continues to be tremendous."
