Kelsey & Jack Reynolds
Kelsey and I moved from Long Island, NY to Charleston in 2018 with a mission to grow the game of lacrosse. Fast forward to the present day, we’re now married, living our dream, and have come to know lacrosse as more than just a game because, for us, it's a way of life. It's the collection of our memories made, life lessons learned, and relationships built along the way.
