Thank You From Park City Lacrosse
The Park City High School boys’ and girls’ lacrosse teams would like to thank everybody in Park City for making this year’s Christmas Tree Recycling Fundraiser the best one in the history of the event. Nearly 500 Christmas trees were collected over two weekends in January by our players. The fundraiser is a great community service for Park City, supplying trees to Swaner Nature Center for habitat improvements and all other trees are chipped down for recycling. Park City High School lacrosse teams are 100 percent self-funded, administered by volunteers and all contributions help support more than 110 student-athletes on five high school-level teams. The varsity girls’ and boys’ programs were ranked among the top-10 teams in the entire Western U.S. last year and many of the kids graduate to play in top college programs in the U.S. and Canada.
