Two youth clinics were held on Nov. 17th by the Marple Newtown High School lacrosse program.
NEWTOWN SQUARE–On Saturday, Nov. 17th, the Marple Newtown High School lacrosse program held two youth clinics with 80 players attending. Mike Miller, MNHS Coach, asked the players to make a donation to Philabundance instead of a fee. The program raised $580 for Philabundance.
