Emily Gibson at the Lake Placid Summit Classic
US Lacrosse staff member Emily Gibson is up in Lake Placid this weekend, playing for team Graph-Tex in the elite division of the annual tournament. Gibson, who scored 110 points as a Loyola midfielder, is on that team with several Loyola and Syracuse alums, including Team USA's Katie Rowan... Presumably they're not a bad crew to play with...
She'll be firing off some photos and thoughts as the weekend progresses, giving us a look at the experience of playing in that annual tourney.
|Arrival in Lake Placid. I flew into Albany and met Tee Ladouceur ('Cuse '11) and Abby Rehfuss (Loyola '11) for the rest of the trip up. |

|And a thumbs up for the perfect start.|
Graphtex is in the hunt for the women's elite title, but face a tough challenge on Saturday against a Syracuse/Virginia squad that already has a win over Team STX in the tournament. Emily will hopefully check back tomorrow morning and let us know how things are going as the tourney continues...
With their first lost in five years, Team Graphtex took third place after losing to the eventual champions, Team HLA. Despite the loss Team Graphtex enjoyed their weekend in beautiful Lake Placid, N.Y.
Check out a few photos from the rest of Emily's weekend.
