LAX 2013

June 2, 2013

No, not Los Angeles International Airport, but lacrosse (LAX), that popular sport among Georgetown families, held the 13th annual Tewaarton Awards at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian last Thursday, May 30th. A most appropriate venue as the sport was played by Native Americans and renamed Lacrosse by the French.

The Tewaaraton Awards not only celebrates those who have contributed to the advancement of the sport but also gives back to the Native American community by providing college scholarships to Native American high school students who play lacrossethrough the generous support of US Lacrosse.
