Men’s Lacrosse Makes Big Impact in the Community

NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. – Being a student-athlete doesn’t just mean making an impact on the field, as members of the Merrimack College men’s lacrosse team recently proved with their involvement in the local community. 

Players from the Warriors volunteered their time and energy at the Lazarus House in Lawrence, which was founded to “restore dignity and self-respect to empower guests – poor, underserved and homeless individuals and families.” A bevy of players helped at the house for two days and worked alongside other volunteers in the soup kitchen. 

Members of the Warriors also raised a hefty amount of money in support of pediatric cancer research recently at Boston Children’s Hospital. In total, 11 members of the team raised $1,000 apiece to combine for $11,000.

“It has been an honor to watch our team give back in working with Boston Children’s Hospital, as well as the Lazarus House,” said head coach Mike Morgan. “As a staff, we are very proud of their efforts in the community and their representation of our program.”

Merrimack returns to the field Saturday afternoon to take on local rival UMass Lowell. Face-off is set for 1 pm at Duane Stadium.
