Inaugural HPT LAX CLASSIC debuts Saturday February 24th

HPT HiToms Add To Their List of Scholastic Classics

Event Location: Greensboro College – Pride Field, 815 W. Market St., Greensboro, NC 27401
The High Point Thomasville Hi-Toms have announced the launch of the Inaugural HPT Lax Classic Saturday, February 24th at Greensboro College. Designed to showcase the southern Triad’s top girls and boy’s high school lacrosse players, the one-day event in downtown Greensboro will feature eight teams and six schools in a girl’s tripleheader and a boy’s single contest.

Featuring AAA/AA/A girl’s state runner-up Bishop McGuinness High School and perennial Triad power Northwest Guilford, the HPT Classic will also include Davie County and Mt. Tabor from the Winston-Salem area and Greensboro’s Northern Guilford and Southwest Guilford . The boy’s match-up will also be a spotlight on the Triad’s best when Northwest Guilford tangles with the Villains of Bishop McGuinness High School.

“The HPT HiToms are thrilled to provide area student-athletes with the first-ever Triad boys and girls pre-season lacrosse jamboree,” HiToms President Greg Suire said. “Lacrosse falls right in line with our overall growth strategy of facilitating ‘classic’ events for scholastic athletes which broaden their opportunity to play competitive, regional events at collegiate facilities.

Partnering with Greensboro College and Lawndale Veterinary Hospital to host the event, the HPT Classic will feature an impressive lineup of future Division 1 women’s players: Northwest Guilford’s Josie Parret – Campbell signee, fellow Northwest Guilford Viking and East Carolina commit Sophia Apple and Bishop McGuinness’ two-time All-State selection and Penn State commit Kate Dennen.
