Lacrosse isn’t a sanctioned high school sport in this state but it’s certainly growing in popularity.

Players on the local high-school-age club teams are highly successful, and Everett, of course, landed the pro Washington Stealth of the National Lacrosse League. In case you don’t already know, the Stealth play home games at Comcast Arena.

But will lacrosse ever become a sanctioned high school sport in Washington? When?

Once again, lacrosse is on the list of proposed amendments that will be considered by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association Representative Assembly. In fact, there are two lacrosse-related proposals: one to add the sport for girls at the middle and high school levels, and another to add it for boys among the same age groups.

The 2010 Representative Assembly will vote on the lacrosse proposals (and 10 other measures; here are more detailed explanations) when it meets in late April.

What do you think about adding lacrosse to the official list of this state’s high school sports? Be sure to share your reasoning in our COMMENTS section.
