’Berg Celebrates the Return of Men’s Lacrosse

o celebrate the rebirth of men’s varsity lacrosse, we invited alumni lacrosse players and enthusiasts to Scotty Wood Stadium for the March 22 game versus 2001 and 2002 national runner-up Gettysburg College. Going into this game the Mules boasted a perfect 4-0 record and knew Gettysburg would pose a challenge to their undefeated record. During the National Anthem the team was joined by former lacrosse players Douglas Cornwell ’75, Stuart Freiman ’75, Ben Spinelli ’80 and former coach Frank Marino.

After the game, parents, players, and alumni gathered for a special lacrosse celebration in the Solar Corridor. Watching the game, Stuart Freiman noted “it was a great restart for the lacrosse program. The players, parents and coaches were energized and excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.”

Mule Madness

On March 20 Muhlenberg alumni celebrated their first-ever simultaneous alumni event. Alumni, parents and friends gathered in Boston, New York, Lehigh Valley and Washington, D.C., in celebration of the NCAA basketball tournament and Muhlenberg College. Philadelphia celebrated Mule Madness Philly style on March 22. Throughout the night raffle prizes were given out, and at 8 p.m. a simultaneous toast occurred at each location. Philadelphia won the attendance challenge, with a record 77 guests in attendance.

Those in attendance had a great time reconnecting with friends and meeting new acquaintances. Philadelphia-area alumna Anne Marie Neary ’92 commented, “I had a fantastic time at the Muhlenberg March Madness event at Brownies. It was great to meet new fellow alumni and catch up with old friends. My only regret is that I haven’t attended past events. I’m looking forward to the next one!”

A special thanks to Nicki Sayre ’00, Ed Kutchin ’75, Lori Fanning ’97, Stephanie Schoenfeld ’02 and Matt Sordoni ’98 for all of their help in making this event a success.
