Avon Grove senior attackman Tim Golder and Upper Merion senior attackman Nate Hare have been named as recipients of the Inaugural Peter Ortale Memorial Fund Award by the Duke’s Lacrosse Club.
The scholarship awards of $1,250 can be used toward their college expenses. Golder will play lacrosse at Penn Sate next year and Hare will play at Robert Morris.
The Award was created both to honor Ortale – a former Duke’s player who passed away while working at the World Trade Center in the 9-11 terrorist act – and to support the Duke’s mission to support tradition, sportsmanship and community service.
Golder and Hare were chosen for their positive attributes and contributions to the Duke’s LC. Ortale, a Penn Charter graduate, starred at Duke. Ortale was 37 years old and working as a securities broker for Euro Brokers Inc. when the World Trade Center was attacked.
