The Hofstra Men’s Lacrosse team and four more Division I teams came together on Saturday to celebrate the memory of a Hofstra alumnus and raise funds for the charity that he created before his passing at the HEADstrong Foundation’s 2017 Nicholas Colleluori Classic Long Island at James M. Shuart Stadium.

Hofstra and Bucknell, Hartford, Lehigh and Penn State played in five spirited and competitive scrimmages to continue Nick Colleluori’s dream to improve the quality of life for those affected by non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, the disease that claimed his life in 2006.

The highlight of the day was the presentation by Mrs. Cheryl Colleluori, Nick’s mom and President of the HEADstrong Foundation, who spoke lovingly about her son’s dream and the Foundation’s recent work to help families cope with a non-Hodgkins Lymphoma diagnosis.

The results of the scrimmages were as follows:

Game 1 – Hofstra 6, Bucknell 5
Game 2 – Hartford 12, Bucknell
Game 3 – Penn State 10, Lehigh 5 (PSU: Grant Ament (Haveford School) 3G, Tanner Peck (Avon Grove, 3G) – L: Lucas Spence (Springfield-Delco, 2G)
Game 4 – Hartford 9, Lehigh 9
Game 5 – Penn State 10, Hofstra 9 (H: Dylan Alderman, Bishop Shanahan, 2G)
