We Hug Trees....What's that all about?

We take a lot of pride in the fact that we showcase Oregon on the National stage, and embrace the geographic "ignorance" of our opponents!  Over the years, people have thought Oregon = Narnia and seemed shocked that we aren't living like the Amish.  Nothing is better taking the field and proving that not only are we not living in the woods, but that we are great lacrosse players.  A strong defense always drives our offense... and strong defenders always hold their space (hence, hugging a tree).  So that's a little peek behind the curtain....you'll learn more once you join the family!
