BETHLEHEM, Pa. – Nearing the halfway point of its fall competitive segment, the Lehigh men’s lacrosse team will begin facing outside competition this weekend. It’s a big stretch for the Mountain Hawks, beginning Friday with Community Night prior to the Alumni Game. The team will then be honored for its 2013 Patriot League Title at Saturday’s Lehigh football game before receiving its championship rings at Sunday’s annual banquet.
Friday’s Community Night is slated for 6:30 p.m. at the Ulrich Sports Complex with the Alumni Game right after at 7:30 featuring the current team against the alums. The night is Lehigh’s chance to give back and instruct youngsters, providing a systematic workout to athletes of all skill levels up to the eighth grade. The clinic is free and will be run by Lehigh men’s lacrosse players and coaches. Participants will go through drills covering stick work, shooting and dodging in a competitive, yet fun environment.
