LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — In a story Aug. 7 about the Lake Placid Summit Classic lacrosse tournament, The Associated Press erroneously reported the name of a newspaper. It is the Adirondack Daily Enterprise, not the Adirondack Daily Mail.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Popular Lake Placid lacrosse tournament may have maxed out

Officials in Lake Placid say last week’s annual lacrosse tournament once again drew capacity crowds, but it appears the Adirondack village has maxed out in the number of people it can accommodate for the event

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — Officials in Lake Placid say last week’s annual lacrosse tournament once again drew capacity crowds, but it appears the Adirondack village has maxed out in the number of people it can accommodate for the event.

The 28th Lake Placid Summit Classic wrapped up its weeklong run Sunday, drawing 250 teams and about 10,000 visitors.

The lacrosse tournament is now the single-largest team event the village hosts, outdrawing hockey and rugby tournaments. And it rivals Lake Placid’s Ironman triathlon held every July for the number of people it attracts.

Last week’s lacrosse tournament filled local hotels, rental homes, restaurants and other businesses, but it also caused major traffic jams.

Organizers tell the Adirondack Daily Enterprise (http://bit.ly/2vcpIrP) that their event can’t get any bigger, so it won’t be expanded.
