Hempstead Lacrosse Heritage

Speaking of a post I ran on Hempstead Lacrosse, Mark Kelley, wrote, like teammate of Aaron Jones “I too was introduced to the sport of lacrosse at Hempstead.  The program was was “a melting pot of cultures” and coach Alan Hodish introduced us to "lacrosse gamesmanship" and his leadership produced many quality athletes and individuals. As the photo above shows, Hempstead has a long history of producing quality lacrosse players that date back to the 1960s and Hempstead High Coach Hank Lunde.
