Matt Huffman
The St Charles Lacrosse family lost a beloved and treasured teammate, coach and friend on August 3.
Matt played JV and Varsity lacrosse from 2007 to 2010, and was a member of StC's state semifinal teams in 2009 and 2010.
He returned to St Charles Lacrosse this past season, as Assistant Coach for the St Charles Girls JV team.
Should you wish to honor Matt's memory, the family has asked that donations be made to the Brain Injury Association of America, in memory of Mathew Huffman.
Contributions may be sent to BIAA, 1608 Spring Hill Road, Suite 110, Vienna, VA 22182 or made online at BIAUSA.org
Baecker thank you
StC placed three players on the Chicago Lacrosse High School Showcase all-star team last weekend in Northbrook.
Highlights included some very nice feeds and two solid goals from Jud Huxtable (far right). Rich Mix (center) and Zach Woeste (far left) played strong positional defense, and each had a takeaway check with some solid clears.

The Club's Second Annual Walk for Wounded Warriors was very successful, as 172 walkers participated in the five-mile walk along the Fox River at Anderson Park in Geneva on May 20.
Eighty-four percent of St. Charles Lacrosse Club players participated, and were joined by some Geneva Lacrosse players as well.
Together, walkers and online donors raised $5510 for the Wounded Warrior Project, which provides programs and services that ease the burdens of the wounded and their families, aids in the recovery process, and aids in the transition back to civilian life
"We had two unbelievable speakers at the Walk," said StC Board member Lynn Patrick, chief organizer of the event. "Pete Soltesz, former Navy Officer, attended the Naval Academy and played lacrosse at the Naval Academy. He spoke about the WWP.
"And Naperville native Michael Barry, who came home in February 2012 from Afghanistan after serving two years, also spoke of how he appreciates all we are doing to raise money to help vets like himself. He was amazing! Not a dry eye in the place.
"He moved all of us, and was especially moved himself when our players went up to him
afterwards and shook his hand, thanking him for his service. He was overwhelmed."
The Club thanks all those who participated, all those who donated, and all those who helped make the event possible:
• St. Patrick's Junior High students, who helped with a water station and snacks;
• Kelloggs, for breakfast bars;
• Affordable Party Tent Rentals;
• Celtic Custom;
• Amy Blood;
• Brian and Sandy Coughlin;
• Chris and Colleen Clay;
• Darlene Jasica;
• Polly Rerko;
• Peggy Williams;

Nearly 40 youth lacrosse players from St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia and Elgin participated in the Club's annual Youth Clinic on Feb. 20 at St Charles Sportsplex. Ranging in age from 8th graders on the verge of high school play to 2nd graders whose equipment bags almost dwarfed them, the boys (and one girl) were put through their paces by a select group of StC players and coaches.
