"We have had over 18 alumni RSVP all in less than 24 hours after posting the alumni game information on Facebook," says Alumni Ron Skalovsky.

"The Sooners and I are so excited to host Impulse LC in Norman, OK. Our goals are to share our passion and help grow the game. We look forward to meeting the families of the best players in the state and answer questions about playing Sooners lacrosse. This prospects game is also a great opportunity for us to evaluate our new players in a competitive environment, and I'm really looking forward to collaborating on this inaugural event," says OU Head Coach, Mario Enea.
