W&L Set to Host 23rd Annual Lee-Jackson Lacrosse Classic

LEXINGTON, Va. – Washington and Lee University and Virginia Military Institute will continue their lacrosse rivalry on Friday, October 2 with the 23rd playing of the Lee-Jackson Lacrosse Classic at 7:30 pm on Wilson Field.

After playing the classic during the traditional spring season for the first 20 years, the game moved to the non-traditional fall season during the 2007-08 school year where it has continued to serve as a community event for the City of Lexington and the two institutions.

Following the game the Lee-Jackson Lacrosse Classic trophy will be presented to the winning team and the MVP from each team will be honored with the Worrell-Fallon Award.

Admission to the game is free and Washington and Lee will be having a 50/50 raffle during the contest in an effort to support the growth of youth lacrosse.  Proceeds from the raffle will go to support Lexington Lacrosse, the community youth lacrosse organization.

Fans who can not attend the game can follow it live through W&L’s livestats at http://athletics.wlu.edu/livestats/mlax/xlive.htm.
