Men's Lacrosse Alumni Game Slated for October 2

The annual Washington College men's lacrosse alumni game will be held on Saturday, October 2 as current and former Shoremen will go head-to-head on Kibler Field at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium.

Opening face-off for the game is slated for 5:00 p.m., following the men's soccer game against McDaniel College. The inauguration of Mitchell B. Reiss as the 27th President of Washington College is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. the same morning.

The alumni game will be the first formal competition for the current Shoremen under new head coach Jeff Shirk, who was hired in late June after spending four seasons as the head coach at Division I Virginia Military Institute (VMI). The Shoremen are expected to return their top 10 scorers from a year ago.

Alumni interested in playing in or attending the game should contact Coach Shirk at

The 2011 season will be the 70th season of varsity men's lacrosse at Washington College. The College first fielded a varsity men's lacrosse program from 1929 until 1934 and revived the sport for the 1948 season.
