Katy, TX News (September 4, 2014) – The Taylor Lacrosse Club, established in 2003, is the oldest high school lacrosse club in the Katy, Texas area. A number of players have gone on to play lacrosse at the college level at schools such as Marymount, Oklahoma, UT Austin, Texas State, Texas A&M, North Texas, Shenandoah College, Rollins and Sam Houston State.
Since lacrosse is not a UIL sport in Texas, it is considered a club in Katy ISD. Taylor club is looking to change its name to the Katy Kings for the 2016 season due to the wide range of players that come from schools all over the district, and many consider lacrosse to be the perfect off season sport for football players. Practice starts in September and the season runs from late January to late April.
JetLax plays at the Division II level and has had players from Taylor, Cinco Ranch, Morton Ranch and Katy High Schools that play under the direction of the Texas High School Lacrosse League. Division opponents are Fort Bend, Lamar, St. Thomas, Stratford and Westside. The Texas High School Lacross League has 27 different lacrosse teams across the Houston metropolitan area, and has clubs for female as well as elementary and junior high players.
