Day two gave us another full day of exciting games to watch, setting the stage for the importance of next week’s games as well. Although there has been a bit of an adjustment, the nine rule changes have seemed to go very smoothly. Every one of the eleven games were exciting, thrilling, and downright nail-biting, making this another very successful day for commissioner Mark Grimes, and the entire OJALL.

Gary was also made an administrator of Lacrosse History Past Present and Future in 2022.
Mr. Groob co-hosts a weekly Lacrosse show on Spanglish Sports World, and ZingoTV channel 250, as well as writes a weekly lacrosse column for La Portada Canada News (both in print, and online).
