Lasell Lacrosse Players Honor Marathon Bombing Victims

April 17, 2013

Like many other sports teams across the nation, members of Lasell's Men's Lacrosse team wanted to honor the victims of the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing. Assistant Coaches Rob Suh '11 and Michael Maggio came up with a creation that both paid tribute to the Marathon victims and surprised their Laser team: T-shirts that read "Prays for Boston" on the back.

"We thought it was a great way to show our support for the victims and their families," Maggio said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the city of Boston."

Commenting on the effort, Head Coach Timothy Dunton said, "I think that the actions that occurred on Monday hit us all. It just so happened that we were playing in Boston last night, a few blocks from where it all occurred. We just want to show our support in any way we can to all the people affected by this."

The Lasers wore the shirts in an April 16 game with the crosstown Emmanuel College Saints-and won 4-3 in double overtime.
