GA Lacrosse Championships Tonight
Lassiter plays at home and Pope on the road in the quest for GHSA titles.
The Georgia High School Association playoffs come down to this for Northeast Cobb: two games tonight, one at home, one on the road, with two lacrosse championships on the line.
And then the official GHSA sports season is over for our local high schools.
Tickets are $7 at both games. If you go to The Frank, Lassiter is calling on fans to wear white to create a stadium white-out.
