SAMPLE TEXT

Oa’t’soh’da: wi: returned to her chore, upset she had been chided. The Creator’s game occupied her thoughts. Wasn’t the game a gift from the Creator? She had been taught by the faithkeepers about the beginning, when the Sky Woman journeyed to the Earth, carried by the waterfall who broke her fall. Hadn’t the Sky Woman brought with her gifts from the Sky World that helped begin human life on the Great Turtle? Wasn’t this connection with the Sky World enough to permit both man and woman to play the game if their desire was pure?


Sometimes a player immediately stands out among the crowd. The silver haired legend Vivien Jones was such a player. With a career spanning almost fifty years, she became the face of Welsh women’s lacrosse and she maintained the talent and stamina to keep up with her younger teammates and adversaries until the end.

SAMPLE TEXT

Knowledgeable in the latest philosophies of education, Lumsden was determined that St. Leonards would distinguish itself from other schools. Her school would train the body as well as the mind and would not treat girls like delicate creatures unsuited to exertion and athletic competition. Though these ideas were considered by many to be radical and potentially dangerous, more open-minded families saw a country school with bracing sea air as an alternative to school life in increasingly crowded, unhealthy cities.


When Celia Brackenridge came barreling down the field, it took courage to try to stop her.


Many found the black cricket glove she wore intimidating. Few knew she wore it to protect cancer in her hand. If she was going to play this rough game of lacrosse, her father insisted that his eleven-year-old daughter wear the glove. An operation at age fourteen removed the cancer, but the glove stayed. Brackenridge was the first to wear such protection.
