By Steve Wartenberg | Over the years, and in several different sports, Jason Dote has been involved in more tournaments than he can count as a player, coach and parent. But the upcoming Shootout for Soldiers on July 16-17, a 24-hour lacrosse event and family-fun festival and fundraiser for veteran’s organizations, is different.
“This is by far the most unique and fun sporting event I’ve ever been involved with,” said Dote, who will play on about half a dozen teams during the tournament at Thomas Worthington High. “And the idea behind it, and what it stands for, makes it even more special.”
By Steve Wartenberg | The members of Columbus Old Dogs Lacrosse gathered outside Ohio Stadium on Sunday, to tailgate and prepare for the start of the first of two NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Championship quarterfinal games.
Lacrosse in Central Ohio sure has come a long way since the members of this local 35-and-older lacrosse club were in high school.
Lacrosse is arguably the fastest sport on two legs and will come to the forefront in Columbus this month as the city continues to make strides in becoming the “Lacrosse Capital of Ohio.”
Two events in May will advance the conversation as Major League Lacrosse’s (MLL) Ohio Machine will open its season at home on May 8 and will hold games closer to downtown Columbus in an effort to engage fans across the city. On May 22, The Ohio State University (OSU) will be first-time hosts to the Quarterfinal Rounds of the 2016 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship at Ohio Stadium.

Central Ohio lacrosse is back! The Columbus Clippers aren’t the only local professional team opening play this spring, as the Ohio Machine is set to begin their second season of Major League Lacrosse play against the Denver Outlaws Saturday.
The opener will prove to be a big test for the Machine, which finished 2-11 last season and in eighth place of the eight-team league. The Outlaws finished the 2012 campaign with the best regular season record in the league at 11-3 before losing in the league championship game. The start time is scheduled for 8 p.m. at Selby Stadium on Ohio Wesleyan University’s campus.
