Morgan State to play in inaugural HBCU Classic
Morgan State's club lacrosse team will play in the inaugural HBCU Lacrosse All-Star Classic on Nov. 17 at Howard University's Greene Stadium in Washington. The event, which is backed by US Lacrosse, will begin with a high school all-star game at 1 p.m., followed by a college all-star game at 3 p.m. The college game will feature a North-South showdown, with players from the Howard and Morgan State men's club teams forming the core of the North squad, and players from Hampton and Morehouse anchoring the South team. Event organizers hope to have 120 participants in the two games, including players from other teams at historically black colleges and universities. Admission is free. Though lacrosse is the fastest-growing college sport, it continues to struggle to achieve diversity. According to the NCAA, only 1.9 percent of men's Division I players in the 2009-10 season were black. In response to this issue, former Friends and Johns Hopkins star Kyle Harrison has created the Sankofa Lacrosse Alliance for black players. On Oct. 25, the organization held its first event, scrimmaging Team England and Brown University.
