Maybe not here in Moultonboro. Quite a crowd showed up at the School Board meeting last Tuesday on both sides of the issue. A cooperative lacrosse team is being proposed between Moultonboro and Interlakes much like the football team. I have been told that about $9,000 has been raised by supporters of lacrosse.
Softball participation has been on the decline and the worry seems to be that if another sport is added, there will be less participants available for softball and perhaps not enough to field some teams.
I wasn't there during that part of the meeting and the video isn't quite up yet on the Town website, but judging by the standing room only size of the crowd for the brief time I was there, it seems to be a hot button issue.
As I understand it, the School Board did not make a decision as to whether to approve the cooperative lacrosse venture with Interlakes.
Hard to say where this will end up, but I hope to hear more from you about where it should end up. Lacrosse? Softball? Can we support both?
