LEWISTON — Athletes at Lewiston High School will receive from a $1,000 California Casualty Thomas R. Brown Athletics Grant. The money will allow the school to purchase uniforms and equipment for the girls lacrosse team. Coach Brant Remington said the uniforms will help boost self-esteem and pride for the student-athletes.

Lewiston is among 79 public middle schools and high schools in 32 states awarded a total of $83,000 to aid sports programs affected by tight budgets.

The grant is named for California Casualty Chairman Emeritus Tom Brown, an avid sportsman who believes that teamwork, confidence and sportsmanship help develop high achievers in academics and in life.
