Men’s Lacrosse it's More Than A Game
Canisius Men’s Lacrosse, despite many restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, persevered and succeeded on the field, in the classroom, and in the community.
Over the past year, our team had a successful season with an overall 5-5 record. Jacob Buck was named to the All-MAAC First Team, Keegan Kozack was named to the MAAC All-Rookie Team alongside Hunter Parucki, and the MAAC All-Tournament Team with teammate Matt Vavonese. In addition, our student-athletes were one of nineteen Canisius athletic teams to achieve an average GPA over 3.0. We are proud of their continued dedication to not only their sport but also to their academic studies as well.
Despite busy schedules, our athletes were involved in a community outside of Canisius to help them become well-rounded leaders both on and off the field. This past year our Griffs donated their time at Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a nonprofit whose mission is to provide a bed for every child who does not have one. One of the pillars of Canisius, the Jesuit community, as well as our lacrosse program, is for our athletes to be men for and with others. Through all their hard work and dedication they are becoming strong Griffin Leaders and setting an example for teammates and classmates alike.
Your donation to Canisius Men’s Lacrosse More Than A Game Campaign will help provide our student-athletes with additional locker room nutrition to ensure they are able to perform at their best. It also will help provide essential athletic gear like an extra pair of cleats and equipment bags for all our players. Your donation will also help us be able to increase our travel roster for our away games.
A huge part of our success as a team is made possible by the generosity of our donors over the past year. Your continued support allows our program to harvest an environment that encourages growth for our Griffs in the classroom, on the field, and within our community.
