Before I get into today's US Lacrosse U-15 Girls Championship
attire, I'd like to give a special and well deserved shoutout to
the college boys in Seattle for designing the team socks for Team
Washington!!!!!! How can I get a pair?????

Day 1 of the US Lacrosse Girls U15 National Championships, presented by Champion, are now underway and for the past hour and a half, I have made my rounds around the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, scoping out fancy lacrosse uniforms and seeking the top ten. Out of 20 teams, I've already started my chants of "oohs" and "ahhs" as the first nine teams have crossed paths with me.
I am not a laxer; however, I have quite the appreciation for funky lacrosse uniforms and matching accessories.
Currently in the lead is Team Washington. We're talking lime green razorback uniforms with royal blue trimming and all the girls teamed up to wear lime green hair ribbons; all tied to perfection. But what makes their uniforms stand out so far from the rest? Their matching lime green socks. The girls teamed up and designed lacrosse socks to represent the state of Washington by including the Seattle skyline. How, and where, can I get a pair of those?????
Behind Team Washington, the CT Chargers out of Connecticut have uniforms that will also make you do a double take. This is the first time I've seen a mix between Orange and Carolina Blue, and I must say, I may have to add this color scheme to my own personal wardrobe. Some of the girls are also highlighting their uniforms with CT Chargers spankies, CT Chargers bandanas, and check this, even matching CT Chargers sports bras! My assumption when I first saw them was that the girls designed them and I wanted to locate which girl (or girls) did, but speaking briefly with the coach, Dee Stephan, she put all the brains into the artwork.
This might be a hard decision.
