Men’s Lacrosse Club aids one of its own

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - The Men’s Lacrosse Club at Slippery Rock University supports its members, including those forced to step down because of health issues.

The SRU club teamed with squads from Thiel College and California University of Pennsylvania last Sunday at Wally Rose Field for a three-team tournament that raised more than $1,500 to help Nolan Himes, a former SRU exploratory student from Lititz and club member, with medical costs.

Himes was forced to withdraw from SRU in early April for the second time because of recurring health issues.

As part of the tournament, SRU, which is ranked No. 6 in the latest National Club Lacrosse League rankings, won both of its games.

The SRU Relay for Life group, the SRU Sports Information Office and Kelsey Everhart and Lauren Carb, both members of the Women’s Lacrosse Club at SRU, helped with the project.

Slippery Rock University is Pennsylvania's premier public residential university. Slippery Rock University provides students with a comprehensive learning experience that intentionally combines academic instruction with enhanced educational and learning opportunities that make a positive difference in their lives.
