Lacrosse in Pinellas currently is an off-campus club sport, but it soon may be a Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) sanctioned varsity sport in Pinellas county schools. Under the leadership of Mr. Al Bennett, former SPHS principal and now Athletic Director for Pinellas schools, efforts are underway to build a starting foundation of lacrosse teams in several Pinellas high schools, including St. Pete High.
Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport nationally with Florida at the top of the list. Attend the games and enjoy this fast-paced, exciting sport.
