Lacrosse Tournament Returns to the Sports Complex
November 16, 2012
The Smith River Sports Complex (SRSC) will host another lacrosse tournament organized by ONS this weekend, November 17th & 18th. The tournament is set to begin at 9 AM for both Saturday and Sunday and admission is free for both days.
The Cardinal Cup Fall Classic will feature 28 teams of U-11, U-13, U-15, and U-18 age divisions. Teams will be traveling from Roanoke, Chapel Hill, Raleigh Durham, and all over the Triad area.
The Cardinal Cup is sponsored by the Old North State (ONS) Foundation- a North Carolina non-profit organization. The ONS Foundation provides support for the development and enhancement of playing, coaching, and officiating opportunities in the sport of lacrosse.
Tournament directors, Mark & Kathy Goldsmith, decided on returning the SRSC after they saw the success from the past one. "The first Cardinal Cup in the summer of 2012 was very successful for a first time tournament. We had 29 teams participating then so we are very pleased to see a similar turnout for the fall tournament," stated Kathy Goldsmith.
"The feedback from the summer was fantastic which is why we decided to do a fall tournament. We had so many parents and coaches tell us that the Cardinal Cup was one of the best run tournaments they had ever been to and how much everyone loved the facilities at the Smith River Sports Complex," said Kathy Goldsmith.
