PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. – The Pace University Men's Lacrosse program wrapped up fall ball with extreme confidence and optimism for the 2015 season.
Second-year head coach Tom Mariano enters this season having recruited 27 newcomers to the team to pair with his impact returners. "I'm excited about this year and our potential," said Mariano. "As a team we have been working hard to get better every day. At our scrimmages we were able to see positives and negatives. As we get into the next phase of our development, our goal is to improve as individuals and as a team." The team recently wrapped up its fall as they participated in the "Faceoff for the Cure" event hosted by Siena College on Sunday, Oct. 12. The event included scrimmages between the six teams in attendance, a free youth clinic and fundraiser that benefited the Wounded Warrior Project. New for the 2015 season, the men's lacrosse team will introduce the Pace Men's Lacrosse Kickoff Dinner with all alumni, family and friends invited to enjoy an evening on campus with the current program. The dinner will take place on Saturday Jan. 31 in Willcox gym.
