Tom Pillsworth became an integral part of the Lake Placid Summit tournament organizing team in 1991. From 1991-2009, Tom only missed one Summit, which was due to his volunteering
abroad for the American Red Cross. Tom’s primary role over the years was managing tournament staff and game logistics. Tom is best known for his tremendous organizational skills and willingness to do any and all jobs that needed to be done. After the 2oth anniversary Summit in 2009, Tom decided to retire from his many years of distinguished service to the tournament. In his honor, Lake Placid Lacrosse will recognize others who
demonstrate Tom’s hard work and commitment towards the success of the tournament. The inaugural 2010 Tom Pillsworth
Distinguished Service Award was presented to Tom Pillsworth.
