Army vs. Virginia Fall Ball

Oct 19, 2010
The "Playing for Parkinson's" Inaugural Lacrosse Tournament took place on Oct. 9th at the Episcopal School in Alexandra, Va., allowing Princeton, Georgetown, Virginia, and Army to finally see different team's jersey on the field.

The day's second game featured Army and Virginia squaring off in a game where both teams enjoyed periods of success and periods of frustration. Though no official score was kept, it seemed Army got out early as Virginia couldn't quite click as a team. However, by the late stages of the third and fourth quarters, the roles had reversed, and it was Army struggling while Virginia began to click into their usual form.

The event benefited ProjectSpark, "an organization dedicated to supporting Parkinson's education and research." The organization and tournament were founded by Princeton alum Christian Cook, and Davidson Alum Lauren Cook, after their mother Diane was diagnosed with early stage Parkinson's.
