Michigan Hosts Bellarmine in 'Everyone Works for Jack' Game

Ann Arbor, Mich. The University of Michigan Men's Lacrosse team will be hosting NCAA Division I opponent Bellarmine for a pre-season scrimmage on Sunday, January 31 in Ann Arbor, Michigan at Oosterbaan Fieldhouse. Scheduled for a 7:30pm EST start, the contest between the Wolverines and the Knights will be played as part of the "Everyone Works for Jack" series of clinics and events that will benefit current Bellarmine head coach Jack McGetrick and his battle with cancer.

The Intercollegiate Men's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IMLCA) will be using the "Everyone Works for Jack" events as an initial effort to build a Coaches Emergency Fund for members of the collegiate coaching community that are in financial need. College and high school coaches around the country will participate by holding clinics and games in effort to assist Coach McGetrick and help establish the Coaches Emergency Fund. Proceeds from Michigan's scrimmage against the Knights will go towards the fund.

Bellarmine enters the contest coming off a 6-8 campaign in the East Coast Athletic Conference last season. Coach McGetrick has been with the squad since 2004, we he was brought in and charged with building a Division I program at the Kentucky school. The game will be the Wolverines' first of three pre-season scrimmages as the squad prepares for their 2010 title defense.

Individuals interested in making donations to the Coaches Emergency Fund may do so by sending a check made payable to the IMLCA Coaches Emergency Fund to PO Box 644, Forestdale, MA 02644.
