Gophers Assist Local Special Needs Lacrosse Program

TOWSON, Md. — Goucher's women's lacrosse team remains a few weeks away from the start of practice for its spring season, but the program was recently spotlighted by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Association for its dedicated work in the community.

The Gophers have made regular appearances at practices for Parkville Adaptive Lacrosse. The program, founded in 2001 by former Towson player Marty Delaney, offers children with special needs an opportunity to play the sport. It is open to boys and girls between the ages of 5-23.

Goucher's student-athletes provided instruction in several drills during their most recent appearance in December before playing in a scrimmage with the team afterwards.

"I am so glad that I have been able to work with Parkville Adaptive Lacrosse," sophomore defender Claire Lippay (Jenkintown, Pa./Jenkintown) said. "The players are phenomenal to work with and I always have a great time. It's wonderful to see how lacrosse can be played and enjoyed by everyone. I look forward to helping out again."
