Progress continues on the "Legacy Wall" project that was started by the Rosemount boys' lacrosse team and head coach Lance Kuehn. After collecting enough donations to build the wall last fall, the next step was to have Rosemount students paint the wall and then put on plaques commemorating those people, groups and organization who donated.

Kuehn said that most of the painting has been done but the crazy weather this past spring prevented it from being finished before school got out. He said that once the painting is finished at the end of the summer or this fall, they will be able to attach the plaques and the project will be complete.

The "Legacy Wall" is a large wall built for lacrosse players of all ages to practice against before and after regular practice, on their own or with friends, and when they are not involved in drills during practice. Kuehn said back in the fall that he had seen similar walls at other schools and wanted the lacrosse program to leave a legacy behind at Rosemount that the whole community could get behind.
