In addition to the Quakers — who advanced to the quarterfinals of the national tournament in 2019 — two more teams from last year’s NCAAs will be playing in the UCC in Army West Point and Johns Hopkins. The fourth team, Albany, reached Championship Weekend in 2018.
Since 2007, HEADstrong has presented a series of fall collegiate men’s and women’s lacrosse philanthropic events. Originating at Ridley High School, HEADstrong founder Nick Colleluori’s alma mater, the series has expanded to nine events overall that are hosted regionally in conjunction with collegiate partnerships. The third weekend of October will be the third of three consecutive weekends during the month to feature multiple lacrosse events at multiple locations. In lieu of admission to both events, a suggested donation of $5.00 per person will be asked at the gate. For more information on the HEADstrong Foundation, please visit www.headstrong.org and follow the foundation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @HEADstrongFnd.
The following weekend, the Red and Blue will celebrate their 2019 season with their team banquet and Alumni Weekend. The annual Alumni Game will take place on October 19 at 12 p.m.
