FEATURE: Learning lacrosse
Garrett Kraut, 13, of Midland practices his ball and stick handling Saturday afternoon during his brother Jordan's baseball game at Midland High School in hopes to improve for his next lacrosse game. Kraut scored his first goal earlier Saturday during a game in Hartland, Mich helping his team secure a 10-5 victory. "It's a full-contact sport," said Garrett Kraut, who is playing in his first season. "When I made that goal, it was pretty exciting. The game is tiring though. I've got to keep up my conditioning and always be ready to grab the ball and get around my opponents. That's how we win. It's pretty hard, but definitely fun."
