On Saturday, November 30, while most of us were out shopping or hanging holiday decorations, more than 40 past and present Gilman lacrosse players gathered on the Oval field to shake off the turkey-infused rust and test their mettle against one another. About 15-20 alumni from between 2015-2019, many currently playing at DI and DIII programs, suited up against some of this year’s Greyhounds. Says Piper Bond ‘18, “The game was a lot of fun and went very well. The first half was the alumni vs. the current team, and the alumni prevailed 5-3. During the second half, we split into teams that were a mix of alumni and current players, and it was a close game. Overall it was a very fun day!” The game, organized primarily by Xander Martin ‘19, featured several brother-on-brother match-ups, including the DeMuths, Carneals, Halperts, Heberts, and Godines. And, a supportive crew of parents, teachers, and coaches - including Messers Daly, Heubeck, Hoffman, Hudson, and Matthews - came out to watch, and Dan Muhly, PP generously officiated the game. Says Piper, "We hope to make this an annual tradition going forward!"
