Our Story

The John Pepper Memorial Lacrosse Tournament and John Pepper Wildcat Invitational were established by the Camillus Lacrosse Community in honor and in memory of former West Genesee Junior Varsity lacrosse player, John Pepper who tragically died August 30, 2001. The tournament helps benefit the West Genesee lacrosse program and other local, national and international lacrosse oriented causes and is dedicated to the Creator's gift of lacrosse and to John Pepper and his enjoyment that lacrosse gave to him.
