Duquesne Lacrosse Caroline Gallagher Memorial Alumni Weekend
Oct. 19, 2010
On Sept. 18-19 head coach Mike Scerbo and assistant coach Gina Oliver hosted the inaugural Duquesne Lacrosse Caroline Gallagher Memorial Alumni Weekend. The event was held in conjunction with the Leukemia Lymphoma Society (LLS) W. PA & WV Chapter and was in honor and memory of former DU lacrosse player and Duquesne alumnae Caroline Gallagher who lost her battle with Leukemia earlier in 2010.
Over 30 lacrosse alumni attended the reunion as well as family and friends of the program. The event consisted of a Saturday evening reception in the President's Box within the A.J. Palumbo Center to start off the weekend. Sunday morning the alums played the 2011 Dukes at Rooney Field with the current team winning the contest, 12-8.
The event generated over $1,000 which was divided between the lacrosse program and the LLS. This will become an annual event held in the fall of each year.
Alumni who are interested in participating on the Lacrosse Alumnae Committee are encouraged to contact Bobbie Jo Belus, Assistant Director of Athletic Development. Committee members will assist with planning future alumni player reunions and other special activities for former players. Bobbie Jo can be reached at 412-396-4662 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
