WORCESTER, Mass. - The Holy Cross men's lacrosse team will play Patriot League opponent Navy on March 15 in Dallas' Texas Stadium as part of the 2008 Patriot Cup, a four-game lacrosse showcase featuring some of the nation's premier collegiate and high school programs. Dallas-based TITUS Sports Marketing, which is managing the event for the North Texas Chapter of US Lacrosse, released the official announcement at the US Lacrosse National Convention in Philadelphia.
The Patriot Cup will feature a college doubleheader of Holy Cross vs. Navy at 1:00 p.m. and Rutgers vs. Army at 4:00 p.m. A pair of high school match-ups will also take place as Episcopal School of Dallas will face St. Mary's of Annapolis (Md.) at 10:30 a.m. and Dallas Highland Park will battle Memphis University School (Tenn.) in the final game at 6:00 p.m.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Wounded Warrior, a non-profit organization which seeks to assist those men and women of our armed forces who have been severely injured during the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations around the world.
The 2008 Patriot Cup will be the first lacrosse games played in Texas Stadium, which is home to the Dallas Cowboys and hosts more Texas high school football playoff games annually than any venue in the Lone Star State.
