Officials announced today that the second annual Nick Colleluori Women’s Lacrosse Classic held on September 25 at Hofstra University raised over $42,000 to help bring awareness and blood cancer research for the HEADstrong Foundation.
There were 15 teams in this year’s event as host Hofstra, Philly squads La Salle and Temple as well as Adelphi, CW Post, Bentley, Iona, Long Island University, Stonehill, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and a pair of post-collegiate teams (New York Athletic Club and Long Island Squids) competed in the all-day tournament.
Highlighting the day was a speech prior to the Hofstra versus New Hampshire game by Cheryl Colleluori talking about the HEADstrong Foundation, her son Nick and what this event means to the family. Nick Colleluori, a Ridley High graduate, passed away four years ago after a valiant fight against Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
The 4th annual Nick Colleluori Classic, featuring 20 men’s teams, was held on Oct. 9-10 at Ridley High.
