Morgan competed in the Big Easy Classic with the Lacrosse Academy of Birmingham (LAB) High school “A” team this weekend in Mandeville, LA. It was his last travel away game this summer and the first I went to. With so much going on at home and these tournaments being jammed pack with games in the heat for two days it usually works best for just Trey to take the player and maybe one or two extra kids. Earlier this summer Trey took Hanson and Jordan to the Nashville tournament then only Morgan and Trey went to the Kennisaw, GA tournament a few weeks ago. For this tournament we left Elijah back in Birmingham because he had work and friends to hang with and we went to Grammy and Pawpaws in MS the Wednesday before to have some time with friends and family there. We then left all the kids including for the first time ever in over 20 months, Gayley, in MS and drove over to the tournament Saturday morning.
Morgan played great Saturday morning. They tied one game and won the next. We made sure we enjoyed as much local favorites as we could including scrupulous roast beef po-boys, local Abita Springs root beer, drive-thru daiquiris for us adults and my absolute favorite beignets!!! Sunday they won their first game, lost second and then lost in the semifinals. The boys played with so much heart and I loved watching Morgan. I can’t believe how long and hard they played in such horrible heat! Trey and I simply melted while sitting under umbrellas for shade. Way to go Morgan on winning so many face offs and for your goals and spectacular assist! You are amazing son!
