Team 8 returns for its second year to the Boys Southern Invitational to honor the life of former teammate, Jamie McHenry. Jamie played many sports but lacrosse was his absolute favorite. Team 8 is rostered of 20+ carefully selected players from different schools in Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee who love the game, watch it, and practice consistently. These boys will represent Jamie on the field this Sunday and we are beyond excited to have them participate in our Southern Invitational.
