Earlier this month, lacrosse players from around the Mid Atlantic region flocked to Tierney Field at USA Lacrosse in Sparks, Md.
The event was put on by IRON44COMBINE which is run by Q4 Lacrosse out of New Jersey. A slew of college coaches were on hand to help provide instruction and also show these players how a collegiate practice and lifestyle is for a college lacrosse player.
