Proceeds totaling $13,500 from the 2011 Checking for Cancer Lacrosse Tournament were donated to the Kimmel Cancer Center in Philadelphia today.
The tournament was held on Saturday April 16 and was hosted by The Haverford School. Participating teams included girls’ teams from Baldwin, Friends’ Central, Agnes Irwin, and Germantown Friends. JV Boys teams included The Haverford School and Conestoga. Varsity boys teams included The Haverford School, Darien (Conn.), Radnor, Downingtown East, Georgetown Prep (Md.), Delbarton (N.J.), Conestoga, Greenwich (Conn.), La Salle, Wilton (Conn.), Chatham (N.J.) and Fairfield Prep (Conn.).
The event was created in 2009 by Haverford School coach John Nostrant, a prostate cancer survivor, and his college teammate Georgetown Prep coach Kevin Giblin. Giblin is a colon cancer survivor.
Nostrant and Giblin were roommates at Washington College and linemates on the lacrosse field. They served together as assistant coaches for the United States U-19 men’s team in 2008 when it captured the International World Federation Championship in British Columbia.
