With the lacrosse season approaching, and lacrosse coming in swinging at full speed, the question of the day is do they deserve a lacrosse class period during school. As some may not know lacrosse is finally becoming a sanctioned sport in the Davis School District, and it deserves to be treated just like every other sport that has a class period at this school.

Members of the lacrosse team has been trying to convince the vice principal, Mark Jolley, to put together a class for them before the next semester starts. I have asked numerous players about what they would use the class for and all of them responded passionately with great ideas.

“It would be super beneficial to have a class period because we could use it to lift on our non-game days. On the days where we would have a game the same day we had the class period, we would use it to watch film on the opponent we play that day or we can use it to get a real good stretch in.” – Kache Allen, Lacrosse Captain

All points seem very valid to these boys who would use the period.

Every sanctioned sport at Davis High school has a class period during the day to train, workout, and even to use as a study hall period. I think it would be fair to have that since Lacrosse will be a sanctioned sport this upcoming semester, it definitely deserves a period as well as every other sport at the school. With the semester starting along with the season starting, the lacrosse team waits impatiently for the class to be created and started for them before the season and semester starts.

Eventually the class period has to be started for the sport, and the players insist the sooner the period is created the better!
