The U11 Monsters Lacrosse team has been recognized as one of the best teams in the nation, and has been invited to the Dick’s Tournament of Champions Dec. 29 through 31 in Wesley Chapel.
The elite youth lacrosse team, comprised of fourth- through sixth-graders, finished first in several tournaments, including the Casey Powell Orange Classic, Rippin’ at the Ranch, and the Grip It and Rip It tournament. The team also finished second at the Citrus Bowl Summer Face Off and the LB3 Summer Jam.

"We are honored to be a part of such a prestigious event," coach Chris Sforzo says, "We are looking forward to competing against the best teams in the nation. Our kids have worked very hard and are a special group. It's been a blast coaching them."
