            Today the Texoma Lightning hosted their first ever home games up at Paul Laird Field. and they represented Texoma well. The Lightning took down Plano East High School  6-5 in game one and then beat Holland Hall high school 7-1 In game two.

            Durant High School junior and Texoma Lighting midfielder Logan Hibbs says it is exciting  to get in on the ground floor of lacrosse in the Texoma area.

            "It's great to be the first team in Southeastern Oklahoma and North Texas. We're just hoping to create a legacy and make this a permanent sport down here in this area. It's a sport not many people play around here but it's going to help you in anything that you do, whether its life or any sport that you play. So I would say just come out and try it, come to a practice and see what it's like," Durant junior/Texoma Lightning midfielder Logan Hibbs said.
