JOHNS CREEK, Ga. For the tenth year in a row, Johns Creek will host the three-day Southeastern Lacrosse Conference championship with added extras: the presentation of the 25th Anniversary Team and Hall of Fame inductees.

All events on Saturday and Sunday are at one location, Northview High School in Johns Creek. For the third year, the Johns Creek Convention and Visitor Bureau (JCCVB) is the title sponsor of the SELC championships.

JCCVB executive Heather Blanchard said the bureau is pleased to be the title sponsor again.

"This tournament is a great event for us. It brings more than 700 players, their families and their booster clubs," Blanchard said. "This is the largest college lacrosse conference. They come from Virginia, South Carolina and Florida to play."

Blanchard said the JCCVB also uses this event to showcase Johns Creek to lure visitors back for other events in the city such as the Johns Creek Arts Festival and this year's U.S. Amateur Open at the Atlanta Athletic Club in August.

Key to the continued success of the tournament has been the cooperation of Northview High School.

"Northview is a phenomenal host. They are the big reason the SELC keeps coming back," she said.

Saturday morning at 10 a.m., the alumni game will be played. Space is limited to the first 60 players. Alumni need to sign up at the field that morning. Alumni game players will receive two adult Saturday passes and will be given two lunch coupons good at the food vendors at the stadium.

The Division 2 semifinal games begin Saturday at noon and 2:30 p.m.

During halftime of the Division 1 semifinal game (5:30 p.m.), the 25th Anniversary Team will take midfield to be recognized and receive their awards. There have been more than 10,000 players who have participated as members of the SELC, and only 60 players will be selected.

All 25th Anniversary Team members and Hall of Fame inductees will receive two adult weekend passes. Children 18 and under are free if wearing a jersey. Passes can be picked up at the Northview stadium gate.

Sunday morning at 10 a.m. will be the start of the 25th Anniversary game. All team members are encouraged to participate and should email Doug Horn, SELC president and tournament director, at dchorn21@yahoo.com or 678-427-1097 to confirm they will be playing.

After the game, each team member and one guest will be treated to lunch at the V.I.P. tent at the stadium. The lunch will be provided by tournament sponsor Longhorn Steakhouse.

Sunday, at halftime of the Division 1 championship game (3 p.m.), the inaugural class of the SELC Hall of Fame will be inducted.

    Good job, lax(ative) moms!
    April 15, 2014 | 08:00 PM

    I just want to congratulate you lacrosse parents for destroying young cripples' futures by successfully getting the city of Alpharetta to destroy the Wills Park Equestrian Center. You all ought to be so full of yourselves right now because now your overweight kids now have more room to hurt each over like savages on brand new lacrosse fields starting in 2016! Also, business will go way down because so many people come to town to watch equestrian shows. And now those pesky little disabled kids? Now they will never have a quality life like your kids because they have nowhere to show what they learned in hippotherapy, meaning they will be so demotivated to do anything it will be useless. Way to go, laxative bruhs!

    Why does it matter?
