Lacrosse Loses One Of Our Own

It is with great sadness today that I write a small commentary about the loss of one of our own, referee Tom Hutchison. Tom suffered a serious head injury after an accident a week ago and passed away this week. Tom was 39, and leaves behind his wife Margaret, daughter Sarah 6, and son Jack 4. While I did not know Tom personally, I can say that I know he officiated the teams I have coached quite a number of times. I do recall specifically last season seeing him in Owen Sound, and will say that Tom certainly was a good ref, and by all accounts an even better person.

We at Lacrosse Inside The Game send out our thoughts  and prayers to Tom’s family at this very difficult time.
