3rd Annual Fallen Heroes Classic
While the Stags fell to LaSalle 6-9, the evening was still a success. Thank you to everyone for your hard work and contributions! Congrats to Garrett Haskens on receiving the "Hero Hustle Award"!

3rd Annual Fallen Heroes Lacrosse Game: Please come out and support the DeMatha Lacrosse Varsity team on Saturday, March 23rd 7:30 pm at Catholic University. They are playing their Annual Fallen Heroes game with LaSalle College High School from Pennsylvania. However, this is so much more than a game as they will honor two men, two alumni from both schools, who gave their lives for our great nation. Admission is $5 per person - proceeds/donations will be given to the Travis Manion Foundation.
First LT. Travis Manion (LaSalle) died in Iraq in 2007. His roommate from the US Naval Academy, Lt. Brendan Looney (DeMatha), died in Afghanistan in 2010. When Travis died he was originally buried in a family plot near his hometown. However, after Brendan passed away, the decision was made to bury both men side by side at Arlington National Cemetery. The decision to do this made national news and was covered by all of the major networks.
It was about this time that the high schools of both men spoke by phone and decided to honor both with a 'Fallen Heroes' lacrosse game. The first game was played in 2011 at the Naval Academy. Game two was held last year in Doylestown. Travis played lacrosse in high school and wrestled at Navy. Brendan played football and baseball at DeMatha. At Navy, he played football and lacrosse, and was a key member of the Navy team that went to the National Championship Game in 2004. Below is link for the video about both young men.
DeMatha's Ryan Belka '11, earns CAA "Rookie of the Year" Award. Ryan is currently a Freshman starter at Drexel University. Congrats on a great first college season!
DeMatha's Phil Poe '10, tied a UMBC school record winning 22 faces offs in UMBC's 17-16 OT win over Albany. Great job Phil!
