NHS Athletics: Rockets Review

Saturday was a special day for the High School Lacrosse Community. Top Teams from all over Eastern Mass went to Westwood to play in the Bruce Lerch Memorial Games.  Needham Boys Lacrosse was honored to take part in the day and through ticket sales and fundraising contributed $3700 to The Bruce Lerch Scholarship Fund!
