Bullis LAX Defeats Trash: 27 - 0

Saturday, March 26, 2011 - 12:00pm

Friday afternoon, 25 members of the Bullis Lacrosse team tackled the Little Falls Stream Valley park behind the Sumner Shopping Plaza and came out with 27 bags of trash and recycling! The trash put up a good fight, but the Bullis boys proved tougher. In a rigorous match during which the boys had to scale the steep slopes of the creek valley, wrestle tires and fencing from the stream and fight vines and branches, the team emerged 90 muddy minutes later with 27 bags of discarded plastic bags, cups, carry-out containers, cans and bottles. 8 bags were dedicated just to recyclables! For bonus points, they also retrieved two tires, one piece of fencing, one wooden table, one wooden palette and miscellaneous scrap metal.

The trash pick-up was Coach Bobby Pollicino's annual team service project. Good job boys and thank you to Coach Pollicino for thinking of the environment.
