Women’s Lacrosse Continues to Serve Surrounding Community

SAINT LEO, Fla. – The Saint Leo women's lacrosse team continues to live by the core values of Community and Responsible Stewardship by taking time out of their busy fall schedules to give back to the surrounding community.

With paint brushes in hand the last two weekends, the Lions have helped the local Habitat for Humanity organization prime and paint two houses that will soon be turned over to grateful families.

"It was great to see the team put in so much hard work while helping out with Habitat for Humanity the last two weekends," said Head Coach Lesley Graham.  "Service efforts like these not only help us give back to the surrounding communities, but it also helps us come together as a team.  It's a great chance to give back, and we're so appreciative of these opportunities."

The Lions will continue their service efforts on Saturday, September 28, when they participate in the "I Lacrosse My Heart Tournament", hosted by the Wesley Chapel Athletic Association.  The tournament is a charity event created to help educate female players about heart health and sudden cardiac awareness on the playing field.  All funds and proceeds benefit the St. Joseph's Children's Hospital and Parent Heart Watch.  The Lions will square off against Florida Southern as part of the tournament, with the scrimmage slated to begin at 1 p.m. at the Wesley Chapel Regional Park.
