The Holy Cross men’s lacrosse team will visit the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square on Monday, Jan. 25. The team recently placed first in the nation in the NCAA Division I Team Works Competition presented by Helper Helper in recognition of their commitment to community service. The competition is based on how many community service hours each team contributes. The Crusaders led all men’s lacrosse teams with 26 hours of community service per student-athlete.
The Crusaders are heavily involved in the Worcester community. For the past 15 years, the Holy Cross men’s lacrosse team has participated in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program in honor of its teammate John Price. In 2000, Price died suddenly, leaving his team and the Holy Cross Community too soon. Price dedicated much of his time to community service and planned on working as a lawyer in the field of human rights. In his honor, the lacrosse team started John’s Brothers, which serves each week at the Canterbury School in Worcester. Every member of the team works directly with their “little” with whom they play games and tutor.
The Crusaders are coming off a season in which they earned their first ever national ranking (No. 19) by defeating national powers No. 8 Loyola (Md.) and No. 9 Army West Point. The Crusaders also set a school record for Patriot League victories.
In honor of the occasion, Holy Cross Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach Judd Lattimore and selected players will ring the Closing Bell.
A webcast of the Nasdaq Closing Bell will be available at:
