Men's Lacrosse Alumni Day 2017
On Saturday, April 22, 2017, alumni, parents, and friends gathered in the Hospitality Suite at Tenney Stadium at Leonidoff Field for Men's Lacrosse Alumni Day. This annual event is held not only to reconnect former lacrosse players, but also to help raise funds for the
Marist Men's Lacrosse Team. As a team sport with high expenses, the students
appreciate the assistance from alumni. A very large THANK YOU goes out to the close to 90 alumni and
friends who donated this season through Jamie McGurk '97's online fundraising initiative! Plus all additional gifts we've
received from alumni, parents, and friends.
