From Press Release
Carol Rainson-Rose has been recognized for her many contributions to lacrosse and beyond by Islip Town Supervisor Phil Nolan and the Islip Town Council.
Rainson-Rose, the longtime girls’ lacrosse coach at Northport, won a state Class A title in June when her Tigers (20-2) won a dramatic 11-10, double overtime win over previously-undefeated Pittsford.
This fall, as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Rose helped organize the inaugural Lax For Hope Tournament on the Oakdale Campus of St. John’s University. The Oct. 2 event raised $20,000 for Long Island women battling breast cancer.
“Based on the success of this year’s tournament, Beauty for a Cure has said Lax for Hope will become an annual event in the Town of Islip,” Nolan said. “The tournament, as well as the money it raised for women with breast cancer; it wouldn’t have been possible without Carol’s work.”
Rose is also the founder of the Long Island Elite Yellow Jackets, Long Island’s first travel girls’ lacrosse team.
