Morgantown, Feb. 17 - As this website develops I will move things around to hopefully be more efficient. Today, "News" , has been grouped with "Directory". Fresh items will be posted here on the front page and on the area page. If you are looking for lacrosse news in your area, go to the NEWS & DIRECTORY and click on your area. As news gets "old" it will disappear from the front page, but will remain on the area page in some form. As it ages there, it may be archived and made accessible from that page.
FORMS has been added. Presently, the only form is the Athletic Insurance Verification Form required for the Morgantown Middle School Program. Program administrators may submit their form for posting. It will save everyone a lot of time.
