The Tinsteltown Throwdown Rundown

The Great Park in Irvine hosted 64 boys lacrosse teams on Saturday and Sunday in the eighth annual Adrenaline Tinseltown Throwdown.

Teams from California, Arizona and Colorado competed in seven different divisions ranging from the graduating class of 2020 to 2026/27.  Each state claimed at least one division championship.

“The facility is amazing, all the teams, it’s pretty competitive,” said JR Grubert, event manager for Adrenaline. “I’ve seen a lot of the games here. We got a lot of overtime games, so that was really cool that we had teams that were evenly matched.”
