Congrats to Andrew D’Alba of Servite High School! He is the first winner of MaxLaxOC.com and the Pacific Coast Shootout’s giveaway of FREE tickets every Friday until March 7th to see the Denver Pioneers and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish battle it out at LaBard Stadium at Orange Coast College.
Andrew D’Alba was the first lucky fan chosen at random to win two free general admission tickets to the big game March 8th at LaBard Stadium (prize valued at $50). If you haven’t entered, all you have to do is complete our entry form, provide the team for which you play for or associate yourself most closely. If you don’t win the first week, don’t worry about it. All entries except the winners will be re-entered every week (unless you win). Winners will be announced every Friday and notified via email. Tickets will be mailed to the winner’s home address.
Look for several local players to have an impact in the Shootout.
Former Foothill Knights (Tustin, CA) standout Erik Adamson is a junior midfielder for Denver and was one of the Pioneer’s leading scorers in 2013. Two-time All-American attackman and 2010 Orange County Player of the Year (Corona del Mar HS) Ryan Mix plays attack for Notre Dame. Junior attackman Kyle Runyon from Coronado (Coronado HS) should also contribute for the Irish.
“It’s no secret. West Coast lacrosse is booming,” commented the event’s Executive Director G.W. Mix. “Each year, more and more players from California are appearing on the rosters of traditional college lacrosse powerhouses. The ultimate goal of the Shootout is to promote the high quality of lacrosse being played in California and the West, while exposing these developing players and programs to the best collegiate programs in the game. With this match-up between Denver and Notre Dame we are well on our way.”
West Coast players are no stranger to either program.
