Lehigh-Lafayette alumni field hockey game scheduled for Oct. 23
BETHLEHEM, Pa. – Field hockey alumni will play in the second annual Lehigh-Lafayette alumni game, which will take place prior to the Mountain Hawks’ clash against the Leopards on Oct. 23. Lehigh field hockey alums will host Lafayette alums in a 9 a.m. game at Ulrich Field. The current squads will square off at 11 a.m. in a crucial Patriot League showdown.
“Last year, was the first annual alumni game. We decided to start a new tradition,” said Lehigh head coach Julie Mazer. “We had a great turnout. It’s something that renews the rivalry and brings a lot of alumni back. It’s really nice to have all the alumni there for our game for our game which follows at 11:00. We’re looking forward to a great day.”
Following the 9 a.m. game will be an alumni breakfast at 10:00 before the current squads square off at 11:00. After the game, alums are invited to a postgame tailgate with current players, alumni, family and friends. That day also marks the official launch of the Lehigh Field Hockey Partnership.
The event coincides with Lehigh’s Homecoming weekend on Lehigh’s campus. Lehigh field hockey alums are encouraged to register by clicking on the link (left).
