Wednesday’s MCLA Linkfest
If you’re like me then you need a little extra to get you through the week come Wednesday. As you’re already on MCLA Fan, you’ve found the right place to look. Here are a few links from around the MCLA world for you to check out. Read on my friends.
Here is a little treat from the PNCLL. The video says it was February 6th of last year, but with a little investigation I’m thinking they may have just dated it wrong, given that Portland took WWU to the very same score last weekend and didn’t even play each other last year. Please though, let me know if I’m mistaken. Either way, Portland took this one 6-5 in what looked like a hard hitting game, check out the highlights below.
Moving eastward we hit a team that has been better and better each year, Michigan State. They continue their tough scheduling again this season with 12 of their 15 matches against teams that ended in the top 25 last season. Yowza! Check out their 2011 Season Preview video.
Westminster Lacrosse Makes March to Cure Cancer

Westminster’s Lacrosse Team Makes “Hefty” Charity March to Huntsman Cancer Institute
Men’s Lacrosse Team raises $2,800 for cancer and will hike to the institute to present check
SALT LAKE CITY – Hiking five miles with 40-pound backpacks may seem quite daunting to most people, but for 40 members of Westminster’s Men’s Lacrosse Team, it’s all in the name of charity. On February 11, the team will march to the Huntsman Cancer Institute from the Westminster College campus to present a check for $2,800 to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation.
Over the past four weeks, the lacrosse team has been busy raising money and collecting sponsors for the “weighted” march to the Huntsman Institute. The team raised $2,800 for the foundation to support Huntsman’s cancer research.
“The lacrosse team has been working hard on and off the field trying to raise money for this important cause,” explained Brett Bird, lacrosse player and event coordinator. “We all know someone who has been affected by cancer, so what better way to help prevent it than putting money toward our local research center.”
Bird hopes that the event will spark the team’s continued interest in service projects.
“We hope that this year’s march becomes a good building block, not only for the lacrosse team, but for Westminster Athletics to start doing fundraisers every year,” he added. “In the past the team raised $2,000 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society and we hope to continue to help other causes in the future.”
Media members are invited to join the hike to the Huntsman Cancer Institute.
The team will start the march from Westminster’s Dumke Field at 3 p.m. on Friday, February 11 and will hike to the Huntsman Institute with an expected arrival time between 4:30-5 p.m. The team will present an oversized check to a foundation representative at the institute.
