PVI lacrosse team to pull plane

The Paul VI men's varsity lacrosse team will participate in the 2009 Plane Pull Oct. 3 to support the Special Olympics of Virginia. The Plane Pull is a team competition to see which group can pull a 164,000+ pound plane the fastest.

Teams are made up of 25 members, who all line up adjacent to a huge rope attached to the aircraft. Each team will attempt to pull the aircraft 12 feet in the fastest time.

The PVI Lacrosse team is currently seeking sponsors to help raise $2000 for Special Olympics. Anyone interested in helping may do so on the team's website www.paulvilacrosse.com. Just click on the FirstGiving Link to help support the team.
