A TEAM OF THEIR OWN Don Tyson School of Innovation used a First Stick grant to field the first


high school squads in Northwest Arkansas BY MEGAN SCHNEIDER


Because of his students’ interests in lacrosse and the lack of sports teams at the Don Tyson School of Innovation in Springdale, Ark., Warren Utsler, an art teacher at the high school, which is located in a high-poverty district with 80 percent free and reduced lunches, applied for a US Lacrosse First Stick Program grant.


If his students wanted to play lacrosse, they were required to play on a mixed team with players from various area high schools. That is no longer.


On Jan. 12, US Lacrosse awarded a First Stick grant to the Don Tyson School of Innovation, which provided equipment, among other comprehensive resources, to assist the program in becoming self-sustaining. Utsler received interest from 75 students and was able to fi eld two teams of 22 girls and 23 boys in grades 8-10 in February. Don Tyson, which became the fi rst high school in Northwest Lacrosse to offer lacrosse teams comprised of its own students, will begin competing in the Northwest Arkansas (NWA) Lacrosse League, which provided pinnies, by May. Victor Carreno and Sarah Gentry, former and current University of Arkansas club lacrosse players, respectively, will coach the teams.
