Lacrosse's big gains

For the last 30 years, we've heard how soccer is gaining in popularity within the United States. After covering soccer for the last couple of years for The Times, I've seen modest gains, but the sport still hasn't become the superpower in the States like around the world.

Now, lacrosse on the other hand, could be on the verge of something big, at least within the area. The crowds at the Byrd-Magnet game several weeks ago and Wednesday's Shreve-Magnet were larger than any soccer game I've been to.

Is lacrosse at the turning point in its development within the area? It appears so.
