Spartans to Participate in Colleluori Fall Classic

YORK, PA – The York College men’s lacrosse team is set to participate in the 2009 Nick Colleluori Classic on Sunday, October 11, at Ridley High School in Ridley, Pennsylvania. The 3rd annual fall tournament is hosted by the HEADstrong foundation to aid in the fight against blood cancers.
    The event is held in honor of Nicholas (“Head”) Colleluori who was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in September of 2005. A graduate of Ridely High, Colleluori was just beginning his sophomore year at Hofstra University after earning a role on the Pride’s men’s lacrosse squad the previous spring. Colleluori lost his battle just 14 months later but his memory lives on in the Classic.
    The Spartans, who are raising money for the foundation by selling neon green HEADstrong t-shirts throughout the fall, will square off with Widener, Scranton, and Ursinus at Ridley High. Admission to the Classic is $10 with all proceeds benefiting the fight against blood cancers through the HEADstrong foundation.
