Social Media Round Up: The Best of 2016

December 22, 2016
From All-Star selections to playing for Team USA to winning the NCAA National Championship -- Launch players have seen and done a lot in 2016. Join us as we take to Instagram to look back at the highlights from #Launch2016.

Tucker Durkin was joined by fellow Launch players during his third All-Star appearance:


The Launch made MLL history in 2016 with the first cancellation due to heavy rain and lightning. However, a little bad weather couldn't keep the ever-positive Jovan Miller from hanging out with the fans:

Another ⚡️⚡️⚡️ Delay!!

Connor Buczek dug up one of the best throwbacks we've ever seen as he went from being a Casey Powell fan as a kid to teammate in the MLL:


  Kieran McArdle suited up again for Team USA:


Owen Blye enjoyed a breakout run in his first season with the Launch as he posted 26 goals and five assists. Here he throws it back to Powell's last game for the Launch:


Steven Brooks showed us how he turned one of the negatives of life on the road into some team bonding fun:


Steve Pontrello and Nikko Pontrello showed off their championship rings:

Austin Kaut showed his excitement about the season being in full swing -- but Chris Mattes might have been a tad more amped:

And last but certainly not least, this season we said goodbye to MLL legend Casey Powell. Even in his last home game, the forty-year-old lax icon had plenty of spring in his step:

Not hard to get up for my last home game tonight. @florida_launch caseypowell.com #22easy #W @worldlacrossefoundation
