Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off The Wire ", brought to you by Owen Sound Springfest 55+ games.
Register NOW at the City Hall location 945 3rd Ave East.
I had a great chat last week with Lyndsay Brooks of Owen Sound.
A product of the Owen Sound Girls Field Lacrosse program, Brooks has transitioned from playing to officiating at a fairly rapid rate.
That ascension has given her a terrific opportunity this summer, one in which she will officiate at the World Cup of Lacrosse in England and then move on to Poland for the World Games.
The two events set for July carry a lot of weight on a couple of levels.
First, the World Games inclusion is almost a " try-out " to see if Women's Field Lacrosse is worthy of inclusion at a future Olympic Games.
And second for Brooks, the stated desire is to officiate at the " A " level and do playoff matches at this event.
July is a long way off, but for Lyndsay Brooks officiating junkets to England and Poland this summer can't get here fast enough.
I'm Fred Wallace
