Lacrosse is a fast paced game of agility and strength, which naturally builds endurance. The sport is as fast paced as basketball, but allows as much contact as football. At school, this sport does not count as a P.E. credit, so players have to either play another sport or take a P.E. class. Recently, school has recognized drumline as a P.E. credit. By this standard, any activity that requires any physical movement should be considered a credit also. Dawson Cobb (9) shares his opinions.

“I think that lacrosse should be a sport if drums can be.” Cobb said.“Drums aren’t even a sport, but it’s a P.E. credit.”

Lacrosse has been a major sport for many years in the state of Oklahoma, as it has accumulated a large following. Because of the sport’s growth, the activity has amassed a great deal of players, some of which are disgruntled with BK’s policies. According to Michael Taubman, the sport has been a part of his life for a while.

“Comets Lacrosse has been here since I was in grade school.” Taubman said. “This program has been a big deal since then.”

Many of the Comets Lacrosse players wish to have their club counted as a P.E. credit as soon as the year 2020. This prediction can change, and some are speculating the club will never become a sport.

“I don’t play any other sport, so I want this to be a P.E. credit,” Taubman said. “and I don’t want to have to take P.E.”

This big decision relies on Father Kastl. Hopefully, the players and fans can help convince the school to recognize lacrosse as a sport, but the task will not be easy.
