The Top Corner Club recently hosted its family BBQ, alumni game, and kids clinic at the Prep. The day began with an alumni led clinic for the kids from Bronx Lacrosse. If you are unfamiliar with the Bronx Lacrosse organization, you can learn about the great things it is doing right in the Prep’s backyard (here). It is a tremendous organization which the Top Corner Club and the lacrosse program are proud to partner with.
Close to 30 alums, representing 17 of the 29 graduating years of the program, participated in the alumni game. The speed of play was set early by those still in college, but the “old guys” held their own and proved they can still play. There was no shortage of behind the back and between the legs shots, much to the delight of the spectating crowd of alumni, children, alumni parents, and the Bronx Lacrosse players. It was a valiant effort by both sides but in the end the White squad (even grad years) defeated the Maroon team (odd grad years) to take the win.
Post game everyone headed to Mentor’s Court for the BBQ and to catch up and get their hands on some of the available Fordham Prep lacrosse swag. It was a great opportunity for alums and parents to connect and we look forward to an even bigger turnout for next year.
