212 Lacrosse, based out of Park City, Utah participated in the Ski Town Shootout this past weekend under the beautiful setting of their hometown. 212 entered teams in three divisions, U11, U13 and U15.
The weekend proved to be another strong showing for the club led by former UNC Tarheel Mike Acee, Manhattan College’s Brian Bilzi, Albany’s Carson Dutkanych, Westminster’s Christian Pompoco, and Amherst’s Ian Kadish.
The 212 U11 boys team finished the weekend with a 4-1 record, including wins over Patriot Starz, Freberville, Boise River and Cherry Creek Select before losing to the undefeated first place team in a hardfought battle.
The 212 U13 Team finished 4-1 with wins over Utah Elite, Utah Starz, DC Thunder and Boise. And, the 212 U15 Team also finished with a 4-1 record knotching wins over Cherry Creek, Advantage Utah, Utah Lightening, and Boise River.

212 has a cumulative 4 year record of 158 wins 43 losses and 13 tournament championships with 19 players committing to play Division 1 lacrosse.
212 founder Mike Acee reiterated the theme of the program over the last two years. “212 plays 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 is tremendous. I’d also like to thank Brian Bilzi (D1- Manhattan College), Carson Dutkanych (Albany) Christian Pompoco (Westminster) and Ian Kadish (Amherst) for an excellent weekend of coaching and the Skitown Shootout staff for organizing another fun event for the kids.”
212 is led by Mike Acee, who has more than 30 years of experience playing and coaching lacrosse. He was raised in Deer Park, N.Y., where he was an All-American and went on to become a four-time ACC Champion and an NCAA National Champion, starting on attack for the University of North Carolina Tar Heels.
At 212 Lacrosse, Acee has assembled a roster of high-caliber coaches and players. The program emphasizes commitment and success for all its players, and provides one-on-one mentoring for team members.
