Bears return for women's alumnae game


POTSDAM, N.Y.—Former SUNY Potsdam women's lacrosse players returned for the team's annual alumnae game on Sept. 29. The Bears alums overcame former Clarkson Golden Knights late for an 8-7 victory at Maxcy Hall Turf Field.

Potsdam had representatives from teams dating back to 2007, including standouts from last year's graduating class.

Bears Head Coach Lauren Bruce was pleased with the turnout.

“"It was nice to see the longstanding friendships that have continued since playing together at Potsdam,” Bruce said. “We shared some favorite memories including beating Clarkson in 2012 and Buff State in 2007, and of course, spring training travel experiences and the bonds formed with teammates."

The Bears look to climb the conference ranks as they open the 2013 campaign in March.
