212 has a cumulative 3 year record of 117 wins 31 losses and 11 tournament championships with 12 players committing to play Division 1 lacrosse. 212 continues to cement itself as the premier lacrosse training club in Utah.
212 founder Mike Acee reiterated a theme of the program over the last 15 months. “212 continues to play for two of my former teammates at North Carolina, Neill Redfern (battling cancer) and Eric Seremet (recently widowed). The message for the kids to play for something greater than themselves is unifying and they all continue to play very hard for Eric and Neill. I’m extremely proud of all the 212 kids. As always, a big thank you to the entire 212 Lacrosse community. The support the parents show myself and our staff continues to be tremendous. I’d also like to thank Brian Bilzi (D1- Manhattan College) for an excellent weekend of coaching and Adrenaline for organizing a fun event for the kids.”
