Nantucket Student Lacrosse Season


Ack Lax Families,  the board wanted to send out message of deep appreciation for the incredible job that you and the rest of people who call Nantucket home are doing. Every single one of you has taken the profound responsibility to keep the island one of the safest places in the country. Nantucket is ranked 22nd out of 3124 counties in the United States in terms of physical distancing.  Please thank your children for us and let them know other than becoming a parent, this is one of the most important, impactful and selfless things they will ever do. Acklaxers, we salute you. 


The Governor’s press conference recently presented another but necessary obstacle in the way of getting on the fields to play our favorite sport. It is painful for me to let you know that the postponement of our season has been extended further. After our virtual board meeting tonight we were all in agreement that whenever we are allowed on field we will be out there playing lacrosse observing all safety protocols with whoever wants to learn the great lessons that America’s oldest sport has to teach. Time will let us know what the considerations will be once we are back on the field. We don’t have an answer when that will be but we assure you nobody is chomping at the bit more than all of us at Nantucket Student Lax to get feet off the ground and the ball in the air. You will all be kept in the loop with whatever info we get on the resumption of field time. 


We will leave you with a paraphrased passage of one of the 20th century's great storytellers, J.R.R. Tolkien. Now there isn’t a person on this island or on Earth that is not saying “I wish this had never happened”. So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have decide is what to do with the time that is given to us and it seems to me that we are doing the right thing with this moment. As of this afternoon on the island, we have had only 1 new confirmed caes in 23 days and that is an very encouraging thought.
