The Importance of Helmets in Lacrosse

I wrote an entry for this blog several weeks ago that weighed in on the issue of whether female high school lacrosse players should be required to wear helmets.  I gave the opinion that allowing girls, or any athlete, to play lacrosse without a helmet would be asinine, given the high risk of brain injury to players should they suffer a blow to the head from a lacrosse stick or other mechanism.  Apparently someone else agrees with me, namely a former lacrosse official who wrote an editorial on the topic and shared my viewpoint.  For the article, please click on the following link:  http://www.newstimes.com/ci_12984232
