Lacrosse is growing at O. Henry despite our difficult times! We are starting a boys' program this year. You can support both programs by buying awesome O. Henry Lacrosse spirit gear at the link below.

 Lacrosse is a club program and receives 100% of its funding from dues and fundraising. Your fundraising support will help pay for scholarships that allow all kids to play and coaching stipends. The girls' and boys' programs will split the proceeds of this fundraiser.

Any item you purchase will ship directly to you.

 Thanks for your support and go Mustangs!
