Upper Darby Gets Special Thank-You From 101st Airborne

"They got to see us play two games," Foster said, noting that none of them had ever played lacrosse but that they enjoyed watching the sport. "One went to a high school where lacrosse was a big, so he knew about the sport."

At the reception Friday night, the division members stayed for nearly three hours and enjoyed pizza with the team, coaches and Boosters as everyone watched a slide show of the troops in Afghanistan. The team presented the troops with several flags and, in turn, they received a plaque and numerous military flags and signs. They also received a flag signed by all the members of the 801st Brigade.

Foster said the group of nine seniors will have to present their project in front of three teachers, provide a description of what they did and reflect on the value of their service.

"We will have plenty to talk about," he said. "We have to worry about how not to go over the 12 minutes of time we have."
