April 18, 2008 I saw one of the best games in any sport at any level. L-S vs Penn Manor under the lights at Comet Field 6 days after Ryan Weitzel passed away. L-S won the game in overtime 8-7, the winning goal was scored as the entire stadium chanted “Whitey, Whitey, Whitey….”
Hundreds of boys and girls have started to play lacrosse at L-S since that game and part of Ryan’s legacy lives on in those players.
Before every practice or game the High School players take a moment to stop at a tree that was planted to remember Ryan. We do this out of respect, honor and love for our teammate.
