The 2008 Adrenaline HS Challenge was held on January 12th and 13th in San Diego, CA and SimplyLacrosse.com was there. There was a terrific turnout as 44 teams competed in three divisions:
Men's High School
Along with the many California Teams there were teams from Texas, Arizona, Washington, and Canada represented. Along with the very well run two day tournament there were an estimated 60 college recruiters on hand from all over the US. In between rounds there were coaches clinics, recruiter talks, post game chalk talks with the college coaches, guest college coaches participating with each team, all star games, and much more.
Adrenaline does a very nice job putting on this event, and if you have a team on the west coast or you would like to travel to the west coast for a tournament in the future, I would encourage you check out Adrenaline Lacrosse for future events.
