Lacrosse to Host Boston State/UMass Boston Alumni Day on April 20

BOSTON, Mass. – Head men's lacrosse coach Tyler Low has announced that on Saturday, April 20 during their Little East Conference game with Salem State University that UMass Boston will be hosting a special alumni day in which members of both the Boston State College and UMass Boston lacrosse family will be honored at Clark Athletic Center Field. 

"We are thrilled to be welcoming our Boston State and UMass Boston Lacrosse alumni on April 20th. Our guys are incredibly excited for the event and to honor the great Boston State and UMass Boston teams that have come before us," said Low.

The event will mark the first of its kind in over a decade to ever take place at a UMass Boston lacrosse game as the current players and coaches will honor all the former Warriors and Beacons. 

Throughout the contest, fans will have the opportunity to meet with members of all the Boston State and UMass Boston lacrosse teams.  There will also be a special halftime presentation as well to honor all former players and teams, some of which are already enshrined in the UMass Boston Athletics Hall of Fame. 

Low also went on to say, "Giving our players the opportunity to develop relationships with the lacrosse alumni is something that is very important to our program as we continue to grow. Our players are aware of the great lacrosse tradition that Boston State and UMass Boston has, and we are working every day to build a legacy of our own. For a team as young as ours, it is important that we recognize that the Boston State/UMass Boston lacrosse family."

As part of the celebration UMass Boston will be wearing commemorative Boston State College  jerseys (pictured on the left) as well as their Beacons helmets as they take on the Vikings of Salem State.  The start time for the April 20 contest is scheduled for 1 p.m. at Clark Athletic Center Field.  For any fans unable to attend the contest there will be a special FREE video webcast of the game and halftime ceremony.
