The 2nd annual Patriot Cup game between local lacrosse rivals Clarkstown South and Nyack High School will take place this Saturday, April 26 at MacCallman Field in Nyack. This year, the two high schools boys and girls lacrosse teams and the Clarkstown Patriots Youth Lacrosse program have come together to support the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation. The foundation, based in Cortlandt Manor, NY provides programs that help improve the quality of life for children battling pediatric brain tumors.
On March 30 players from the boys and girls Varsity and JV teams and players from the Clarkstown Youth Lacrosse Program ran a nine hour marathon line drill that raised $4,000 for Friends of Jaclyn. The teams will present a check to Denis Murphy, FOJ Executive Director and Jaclyn, his daughter and brain cancer survivor at half-time of the Varsity Patriot Cup Game.
The boys Varsity Lacrosse game start at 7 p.m.
