Sand Storm Lacrosse Tournament At Palm Springs January 10-11 Features 40 Girls’ Lacrosse Teams From Across The Country



“It’s our first time feeling anything like this.”

More than 40 girls’ lacrosse teams from across the United States will storm the desert this weekend for a tournament in Indio.

College recruiters are expected to be among the spectators watching teams from 10 different states.

Some of those visitors in town early had a unique California experience on Thursday, when a 4.5-magnitude earthquake shook the valley.

“I was lying in bed watching TV, and I thought my teenage daughter was kicking the bed. To my surprise she was not,” Don Clark of Gainesville, Va. wrote in an e-mail to The Desert Sun. He and his daughter are staying at the La Quinta Resort & Club.

Sand Storm at Palm Springs, produced by Synapse Sports Inc. of Maryland, is taking place at Empire Polo Club, 81-800 Avenue 51. Games start at 9 a.m. today and 8 a.m. Sunday.
