Lacrosse has often been called "the fastest game on two feet" because of how quickly the ball can be moved across the field. In the Coastal Empire and Low Country area, it has been the fastest-"growing" sport for boys and girls in recent years. The South Coast Youth Lacrosse League held its championships on April 30th at Daffin Park, presented by the Low Country Lacrosse store. The league had six teams competing in the 14 under division and seven in the 12 under division. Here are the results below.

14U Championship
#1 Coastal Empire defeats #2 Calvary in a hard-fought game 9 to 7. Calvary was a dark horse, sneaking past #3 Bluffton at the end of the season to grab that #2 spot. The Head Coach for Coastal Empire was Ryan Chandler, and Assistants were Leif Twoguns and Scott Patterson.

Below are the teams that participated in the league and the rankings going into the playoffs:
#1 Coastal Empire
