Women’s Lacrosse Concludes Fall Festivities

BALTIMORE – The UMBC women's lacrosse team culminated a successful fall season on Saturday with its third annual crab feast. The Retrievers also took part in a pair of play days, a 5K race and its annual alumni game.

The black and gold showed its support on Saturday, Sept. 21 by participating in the 11th-Annual Diane Geppi-Aikens Memorial 5K Race and 1-Mile Fun Walk, hosted by Loyola University. The Retrievers followed with a play day at home and at the University of Maryland on the final weekend of September.

"We still have a ton of work to do, but I think we accomplished many of our team goals this fall," head coach Tony Giro said. "There is no question that we continue to improve every day in the classroom, in the community and on the field.

"The majority of our young kids played significant and valuable minutes against very good competition, and our returners did a tremendous job of demonstrating what it means to put on a UMBC uniform and represent our university," Giro continued.

The squad welcomed back former women's lacrosse members over homecoming weekend for its alumni game at UMBC Stadium, with family and friends all in attendance to take part in the festivities. The Retrievers concluded the fall on Saturday, Oct. 19 with its crab feast, where it drew 340 people and raised over $12,000.
