Syracuse Lacrosse vs. Syracuse Lacrosse

Gary Gait. Casey Powell. Ric Beardsley. Mike Leveille. Matt Palumb. Paul Carcaterra.

Name the Syracuse lacrosse legend and they're probably going to be on the field Saturday, October 9th to play a scrimmage against the current Syracuse lacrosse team.

Its opponent is a group of Orange lacrosse legends coached by Paul Carcaterra ’97. Recent alumni such as 2008 Tewaaraton Trophy winner Mike Leveille ’08, Matt Abbott ’09 and Kenny Nims ‘09 are expected to compete. In addition, several stars from the 1980s and ‘90s are on the roster, including current SU women’s coach Gary Gait ’90, Casey Powell ’98, Ric Beardsley ’95 and Matt Palumb ’90.

Syracuse owns a Division I record 11 NCAA national championships and 34 of the 35 players on the alumni roster were members of at least one national title-winning team. In addition, Gait, Leveille, Powell and John Glatzel ’02 have all won world championships: Gait with Team Canada (2006); Leveille (2010), Powell (1998) and Glatzel (2002) with the United States.

The game will be played in the Dome, costs $7 to attend and will start at 3pm. Proceeds benefit the men's lacrosse program.

Isn't this the great thing about lacrosse. You could never get old football players to line-up for a scrimmage. There's no way you could get all the great basketball alums in one place at one time for something like this. But lacrosse? It's no problem to get some of the best players ever together for a game. 

It's always especially cool to get Gary Gait back in his #22 Syracuse jersey. Hopefully this time we got him some longer shorts.

Check out the full alumni roster here, which also includes recent SU stars like Matt Abbott, Kenny Nims, Dan Hardy and Matt Tierney.
