The SU lacrosse team spent much of Wednesday rallying around senior captain Kyle Guadagnolo and his younger brother Tom, a freshman. Their brother Aaron, 21, was killed Tuesday night when the motorcycle he was operating was struck by a 2000 Ford Windstar that was exiting a driveway onto Hamilton Road, about three-quarters of a mile south of Route 5 in Elbridge.The Guadagnolo family is very involved with the team and all the players are apparently taking it fairly hard. Kyle and Tom still plan on being at the Final Four game Saturday, the team travels to Massachusetts today.
Certainly the outcome of Saturday's game has no bearing on these events but the entire team will surely be playing with a heavy heart and thinking of their teammates and friends throughout. Condolences for this tremendous loss to the brothers, the Guadagnolo family and the SU lacrosse family.
