Wittenberg women's lacrosse team is hosting its first 24-hour lacrosse marathon on Friday. The plan is to keep the lacrosse ball moving in Pam Evans Smith Arena from 7 p.m. Friday to 7 p.m. Saturday.
Team members have signed up in shifts throughout the Laxathon. Requests have been made of family, friends and alumni for hourly pledges, with all proceeds going to support the cost of the team's planned Spring Break trip to San Antonio, Texas, in March 2010.
Donations can also be made by contacting Head Coach Nichole Johnson by phone at (937) 327-6490 or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Team members are looking forward to the fundraiser, which caps their fall non-traditional season. The team has practiced regularly over the last month, and the Tigers hosted a "Play Day" on Sunday, Oct. 4, which included scrimmages with other NCAA Division III teams and a club squad from the University of Michigan.
