Salt Lake City, UT – If you think of an American sport, what comes to mind? Sure, there's baseball. And of course basketball was invented in Massachusetts. But there's one game that's been played on the continent longer than any other. Lacrosse is rooted in Native American religion, and today, it's one of the fastest growing team sports in the United States. Wednesday on RadioWest, we're looking at the history of the sport, its appeal to young athletes and Utah's own Lacrosse community.
