BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland's men's lacrosse team will host an alumni game and a pair of contests against Atlantic Coast Conference foes during the 2010 fall season, Head Coach Charley Toomey announced today.
The Greyhounds will welcome their alumni to Ridley Athletic Complex for the start to a weekend of activities on Friday, October 1. Former players are encouraged to play in an alumni game at 3 p.m. on Friday, and then participate in the Gerry Case Memorial Golf Tournament on Saturday.
"We would like to invite all alumni back to Loyola for a weekend that we know is going to be a lot of fun," Head Coach Charley Toomey said. "The Gerry Case Memorial Golf Tournament is an event that has been a tremendous benefit to our program, and for that we are very grateful to the Case family."
Loyola, which advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 2010 for the third time in four years, will host a pair of intercollegiate exhibitions against Maryland and North Carolina later in October.
The Tar Heels come to Ridley Athletic Complex for a 7 p.m. game on Saturday, October 16, and the Terrapins will face off with the Greyhounds at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 22.
Charitable donations will be accepted at the gate for the Greyhounds game against Maryland. All proceeds raised will benefit children's leukemia research at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center.
"Our games against North Carolina and Maryland are chances for our team to see outside competition and continue to work on the things we are building in fall practice," Toomey said. "The Maryland game is also a chance to raise money for an excellent cause."
Maryland Head Coach John Tillman added, "We're excited for the opportunity to play the Greyhounds and are extremely happy to do so knowing that we can help raise money for sucha worthy cause."
The alumni game and golf tournament will be an entertaining weekend that gives former Greyhounds a chance to reunite. For more information, or to register to participate in the game, contact Assistant Coach Matt Dwan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Saturday's golf outing is played in memory of former Loyola player Gerry Case to benefit the men's lacrosse program. This year's outing will take place again at Compass Point Golf Course. Lunch will be served prior to a shotgun start, and a reception and dinner will be held following the event. To register, or for more information, click here.
