June 19, 2017 — A need-to-read series

The world of girls’ high school lacrosse often gets very low billing in terms of scholastic sports coverage in local newspapers. That’s what made an initiative by The Valley News of West Lebanon, N.H. so unique.

The series is called The Climb, and it follows the Lebanon (N.H.) varsity through a season of transition, where this successful team is finding it needs to turn over playing time to younger players in order to maintain its form.

Here are the 18 parts of the series, written by Tris Wykes. I think it’s the finest series written by a scholastic lacrosse writer in several years. You may need to right-click and read the parts in “incognito” mode in order to avoid hitting the News’ limit on pageciews.
