Men’s Lacrosse to honor Lovrich before Saturday’s 12:00 pm game vs Siena
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville University men’s lacrosse program will pay tribute to Corey Lovrich on Saturday by retiring his No. 88 jersey.
Lovrich lost his valiant fight against colon cancer and passed away last May in New York. A product of Long Beach, N.Y., he played two seasons with the Dolphins before being diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer in spring 2011.
The ceremony honoring Lovrich will take place at JU’s 12:00 pm contest against Siena on D.B. Milne Field.
After the game the jersey will be hung in the newly dedicated men’s lacrosse team room in Botts Hall on the JU campus.
Jacksonville (2-3) is looking to rebound from an 11-6 loss to Robert Morris on Tuesday. Saturday’s game marks the first conference game of the season for both the Dolphins and the Saints.
Senior TJ Kenary (Alpharetta, Ga.) had two goals against RMU and leads the team with eight goals and four assists for 12 total points this season. He has recorded at least one goal in every game this season.
The preseason MAAC favorite Siena (1-5) makes the trip to Jacksonville following a 15-14 loss to Harford last Saturday. Five of the Saints games this year have been decided three goals or less.
