School lacrosse fate remains in limbo

The debate over making lacrosse a sanctioned high school sport advanced slightly at Monday’s meeting, as administration and the local Northern Siege Youth Lacrosse Association inch toward an acceptable agreement.

But it won’t be an easy sell, at least not in its current form.

Board member and former Cloquet superintendent Ken Scarbrough expressed strong concerns about the proposal to have Northern Siege fund all the costs for a high school lacrosse program for the next five years and how that will impact the district’s control over the potential new varsity and/or junior varsity sport.
