Leslie Frank


Paula Evans


Paula Evans and Leslie Frank founded Mass Elite in 1999 to give lacrosse players in Massachusetts the opportunity to play competitively year-round. Leslie continues to be an instrumental part of the Mass Elite family serving as a lead coach and program consultant. Unfortunately, Paula passed away in July of 2012 after a courageous four-year battle with cancer. Paula’s courage and strength were an inspiration to all who knew her and her vision remains embedded in the philosophies of our program and the character of our players.



The Mass Elite Founders Scholarship was created to honor Paula’s legacy and Leslie’s commitment and dedication to Mass Elite. Each year we invite the members of the current graduating class to apply for this scholarship. Seniors will receive an email with submission instruction and details.
