Ninham brings lacrosse back


BEMIDJI — "The fire is back," said Dan Ninham as he discussed bringing lacrosse back to the area.

A lacrosse clinic will be held today at the Bemidji State University soccer practice field, or if it rains it will be moved into the John S. Glas Fieldhouse.

More than 50 youths have pre-registered — 12 players from the Green Bay area alone — for the free clinic, open to players of all ages interested in learning to play lacrosse.
