Missoula Sentinel students Alvin Adams and Sean McCoy will get the chance to play lacrosse this summer thanks to the generosity of a local lacrosse enthusiast and their Life Skills Department teacher.
The Sentinel duo, who finished their freshman year of high school Friday, received hand-made custom lacrosse sticks from Tucker Sargent, University of Montana club lacrosse coach, after he was contacted by para-educator Christian Bitterauf. The sticks were part of a “graduation” celebration for the students who successfully finished another school year.
The wooden sticks, which also have the boys’ names engraved in them, came from Sargent’s new business, Sargent Sticks.
The Life Skills department at Sentinel serves students with mild to moderate cognitive and physical disabilities.
