Transcript Coming Back Originally played by the Indians as a type of war-training exercise, the game lacrosse is credited as the oldest sport in America, and had taken the interest of several students. Two hours a day about 25 students had gathered for lacrosse practice on a small grassy field on the corner of Cullen and Elgin Boulevards. The group was started by Cris Inouyne who, after becoming aware of the popular interest, posted flyers and organized a team. "I knew that six years ago, a lacrosse club was started at UH," Inouyne said. "That club only lasted one year and was forced to disband due to lack of interest. I am trying to bring back the excitement of lacrosse with new players and a winning team." The new players rightfully call themselves a team. They carried a roster and compete with the Southwest Lacrosse Association, and organization of Southwest Conference club teams. Unlike football or basketball, which is funded as a division of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, lacrosse must rely on club monies. Since the club was new, these monies were not yet available. Players had to purchase their own uniforms, gear and necessary team equipment. Also, athletic fields were not yet available for lacrosse play at UH. Robertson Stadium was reserved for track and Hofheinz Pavilion housed intramural activity. The area that was used for practice was not sufficient for home games. Reggie Rley, coordinator of UH club sports, said renting Houston [>arks may surface as a possible so- ution. "Hopefully, by the time everything is organized and the season sets in, the lacrosse team will have access to some of the intramural fields/' Ryley said. -Andy Krug Before the game the players checked to make sure that all of their equiptment is on properly to avoid injury .Photo by Donatello Pitts.
