From Rick Peterson: I came across this picture and not only is it pretty cool, there is a neat back story. This is Hakeem Lecky and Matt Bak. This was before Hakeem transferred to Duxbury and was playing for Nantucket (MA) High School. Matt Bak was the goalie for Marshfield MA (I was his coach before moving up to college ranks) and Marshfield is Duxbury's arch rival in all sports. Hakeem went on to PG at Avon Old Farms and is now a Freshman at Syracuse, Matt went on to PG at Brewster Academy and is now a Frehman at Hobart...so they may meet again!

Matt, my brother, is a 2nd Lt. in the Marine Corps and they are currently living in North Carolina while the rest of our family lives in New Jersey. My dad, Harry, a high school lacrosse coach and lacrosse fanatic, gave Anna her first lacrosse stick upon meeting Anna for the first time. Consider this Anna's debut...she will be a bit older the next time she's featured in Lacrosse Magazine! I hope you publish this beautiful picture! Thank you!

From Tom Browning: Tenacious D. Let's give the unheralded defenseman a little love. Those crease protecting, shot blocking, turn over creating ground ball gobbling unsung heroes of every victory. There are few things a goalie likes more than an effective slide... Pictured are Adam Browning,Team Paragon and Patrick Snipes(orange) CT Rip it. The boys were playing at the Wesleyan Fall Tournament, U-15. Paragon won 6-3, sounds like defense was in play.
