BETLEHEM, Pa. – Smith Family Head Lacrosse Coach Kevin Cassese announced on Wednesday that Cascade will be the official helmet supplier for Lehigh Men’s Lacrosse beginning in the spring of 2010 and running through the 2013 season. Lehigh Lacrosse will be taking the field with one of Cascade’s newest and most innovative helmets ever made in the Pro 7. The new Pro7 is the only helmet in lacrosse with the Seven Technology liner system. The system laterally displaces energy from a direct impact, reducing the effects of G forces, a major cause of concussions.
“Cascade is far and away the leader of the lacrosse helmet industry,” Cassese explained. “Personally, I am thrilled to establish a long standing partnership with the great people at Cascade and I know I speak for every member of the program when I say there is a tremendous amount of excitement surrounding this announcement.”
“Cascade is excited and proud to begin a long partnership with Lehigh Lacrosse,” says Cascade Director of Sales and Marketing, Tim Ellsworth. “Coach Cassese and Lehigh Lacrosse represent incredible passion and integrity both on and off the field. Its partners like Coach Cassese and Lehigh that make our sport great.”
