Siena lacrosse's annual Alumni Weekend is set for September 20-21. Festivities kick off on the 20 with a golf tournament at Normanside Country Club in nearby Delmar, with the Alumni Game set for 12 p.m. Sunday the 21 at Siena Turf Field.
"Our alumni have been instrumental in moving our program forward," Siena men's lacrosse coach John Svec said. "Their involvement in numerous aspects is key not only to the success of our team on the field, but to the success of our student athletes as they transition into their careers."
Registration is now open by using the link at the top of the page. On-site sign-in begins at 11:30 a.m. on the 20th with a putting contest and shotgun start to follow at 12:30 and 1 p.m. Cost is $150 per golfer and includes greens fees, a banquet with the current team and lunch on the course with all proceeds benefitting the team's spring trip to Mercer.
"This will mark the second annual Alumni Golf Tournament with a banquet celebrating the 2014 MAAC Championship team," Svec said. "The first year was a great success with over 130 people in attendance. Golf proved to be a challenge for many of us, but it was a great time. The annual alumni game against the 2015 team will be on Sunday. Last year, the alumni gave the 2014 team a quality test which we look forward to again."
