Elite high school lacrosse teams from across the U.S. will go head-to-head at the 7th annual Legacy Lacrosse Cup in Alpharetta, Georgia. This year the Cup is scheduled for the weekend of April 25th & 26th. The marquee game showcases Mercer University vs. Bellarmine University at 3 p.m. at the Milton High School stadium. Weekend tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students, allowing entry at all games and venues. The high level of competition is evident with 8 of the 16 men’s teams playing in their respective state championships last spring. The women’s teams include 8 of 10 playoff teams.

Each team will come together to embrace competition, develop character, and honor the legacy of Parker Jackson who was tragically killed in a car accident in 2006. Parker was passionate about friendship, competitive lacrosse, and his spirituality. Parker’s parents, Bo and Lauren Jackson, wanted to continue to promote these values which led to the development of the Legacy Lacrosse Cup. The tournament aims to honor Parker’s legacy by communicating to student athletes how their everyday decisions take them in a direction that will lead them to a destination of significance.
All 25 games will be played in Alpharetta over a two-day period with the marquee match-ups being held at Milton High School including the NCAA Division I battle between the Mercer Bears and the Bellarmine Knights. This year’s event will also play host to various vendors such as Moe’s, STX, LaxWorld and Adrenaline Lacrosse. Adrenaline has played a key roll in the development of the Legacy Lacrosse Cup and will be donating socks again this year to each participating team. Adrenaline is providing each of the 26 Adrenaline Legacy Award winners a head-to-toe apparel gear pack. The award is given one member of each team who embodies the attributes known so well about Parker – Camaraderie, Competitive and Character.
“We’re extremely proud and honored to be a part of the Legacy Cup again this year. The powerful message they are instilling into each one of these players is so important. They do an unbelievable job and it’s something we want to be a part of for years to come.” Adrenaline’s Awareness Director, Geoff Worley stated.
Co-Founder Lauren Jackson added, “To accomplish the level of success we have had is extraordinary. We are extremely grateful for the emotional and financial support by Adrenaline Lacrosse, the dedication of the Atlanta lacrosse community, and the volunteers who support our mission to create a first class environment that showcases elite lacrosse while challenging and encouraging students to live lives that leave a positive and inspiring legacy.”
