Men's Lacrosse Held Alumni Game at Finnesey Field
Oct. 18, 2011
Philadelphia - Over 30 alumni were in attendance spanning a stretch of over 15 years. Alums played the game sporting their home white jerseys while the current Hawks wore cardinal.
They played a spirited game with the current team edging out a close victory. The game was a chance for the present team members to meet and interact with former. The alumni had the opportunity to reflect on memories and share quality advice moving forward for the team.
Head coach Taylor Wray was thrilled with the turn out saying, "it was awesome to see so many of our alums back here on Hawk Hill. It means a lot to the program to have the tremendous alumni support we do here at SJU. It's great for our current players to interact with recent alums, and those who have been out for a few years." He went on to say "hopefully their conversations can give our players some perspective on what life is like in the working world and it makes them realize how lucky there are to be here Saint Joseph's right now."
