The University of Florida lacrosse team hosted its first ever alumni game on Friday evening at Donald R. Dizney Stadium. The alumni overcame an 8-5 halftime deficiency to end the game in a 12-12 tie.
“We’re really excited to have everyone back this weekend for the alumni game and also for the ALC Championship recognition tomorrow,” said head coach Amanda O’Leary. “It’s been great to see everyone. The alumni haven’t missed a beat; they came in here and played great and we had a very good game. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the fall season.”
The 2013 Florida lacrosse team will be recognized for winning its third consecutive ALC regular season title on Saturday, Oct. 5 during a pregame ceremony at the UF football game against Arkansas, which will kick off at 7 p.m. at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
The Gators will play Jacksonville at home on Oct. 12 before hitting the road for the remainder of their fall schedule. Florida will kick off its 2014 season on Feb. 8 at UNC Chapel Hill.
