After a long weekend in the warmth and sun of Palm Springs all four Rhino winter select teams are back in town after a strong showing at the Sandstorm Lacrosse Tournament. The Rhino Rippers (U13) had the best weekend going 7-0 and bringing home the 1st place in the first year this event hosted a boys tournament. The Rhino Orange team had a strong showing going 3-1-1 to cap their winter season. The Rhino Roses and Rosebuds also found success in the sun with the Roses leaving with a 3-1 record and the Rhino Rosebuds going 4-1 making it all the way to the semi-finals.
This event capped off a very successful winter select season for Rhino with the Rhino Orangemen (U18) winning the Space Needle Shootout (first time for a team from Oregon). The Rip City Rhinos (U16) went 4-1 at the Adrenaline Challenge and showed very well. And the Rhino Rippers taking the inaugural U13 title at the Sandstorm Tournament. Great work by all Rhino Select teams and special thanks to all the players and parents for their support and hard work thoughout the season.
