Shoremen Returning to Lacrosse for Leukemia

Washington Only Non-Division I Team in Fall Tournament Field

CHESTERTOWN, MD -- The Washington College men's lacrosse team will once again play in the annual Price Modern Lacrosse for Leukemia Fall Invitational Tournament. This year's event, the 12th annual, will be held October 17th at Cedar Lane Regional Park in Bel Air, MD. Sponsored by Price Modern, Lacrosse for Leukemia showcases top NCAA lacrosse teams while raising funds to further The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.

As is often the case, the Shoremen are the only non-Division I team competing at the event. Washington will play Mount St. Mary's at 8:30 a.m. and Towson University at 10:10 a.m. The other competing teams are UMBC, St. John's, and Air Force. All teams will take part in a short ceremony at 11:45 a.m. and each team will have a patient serve as an "honorary captain."

The Washington College men's lacrosse team has reached the NCAA Tournament 28 times and was the first Division III men's lacrosse program to record 500 all-time victories.
