2017 Hunger Games
The Deep River Renegades high school team -- consisting mostly of Southwest Guilford players -- won the award for most donated food at the 8th annual Stick it to Hunger Charity Lacrosse Classic on Saturday at Cash-Bagley Fields. This marks the third time in four years that a Southwest Guilford High School team has won this honor. In the adult division, the Adult Blackhawksdefended their food championship with a dominant show of generosity. East Forsyth High School and the Alamance War Dogs participated in their 8th straight charity event. Jack Britt High School (Village Vipers) participated in their 6th consecutive Hunger Games. The 8th Hunger Games featured 13 high school teams and 6 adult teams. Fayetteville entered two high school teams -- a varsity and JV team from Jack Britt High School -- and an adult team from Fort Bragg. Approximately 350 lacrosse players participated in the event under sunny skies in Kernersville, and generous donations from individuals and organizations pushed the net proceeds almost 30% higher than last year. All donated food was picked up and will be distributed to local food banks through First Christian Church Ministries.
