Day of lacrosse action, for a good cause, coming to Howard High [Elkridge]

Howard High School will host the annual Karl Wolf Memorial Lacrosse Tournament for the 12th straight year Saturday, March 30, at Rockburn Branch Park, Landing Road, Elkridge.

The games begin at 11 a.m. and the battles run throughout the day until the championship match at 4:30.


This fundraising event is named after a 1984 graduate of Howard High School who died in 1999 from Hodgkin's disease. Every year, his parents, Dolly and Bill Wolf, provide two $1,000 scholarships to two Howard senior lacrosse student athletes who are selected as winners of the Karl Wolf Essay Contest.

This tourney comes together at the hands of many volunteers and the money raised is a major source of funds for the lacrosse programs at Howard.

This year's main corporate sponsor is the Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille. The event organizers, Doug Emery and Mark Regal, are looking for anyone interested in volunteering time to help make this event a success. You can participate in a variety of ways, including concession stand staffing, field set up and/or clean up, press box announcers, scorekeepers, T-shirt sales, or program and raffle ticket sales.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Doug Emery (doug_emery100@yahoo.com or 443-896-7614) or Mark Regal (mark.regal@jpbpartners.com or 443-250-1321).

Try to get out to Rockburn for the tourney, enjoy some great lacrosse action and support a worthy event on behalf of our local student athletes!
