Lacrosse in brief: Week 7

ajc.com

Most teams are on spring break this week, and while normally this time of year is an opportunity for them to travel and compete in non-region — and in some cases, out-of-state — events. But this season teams are staying put and taking the week off, but that’s still much better than last year, when there wasn’t a season.

Every Monday, we’ll shine a spotlight on a boys and girls team from each classification. Below are this week’s teams:
