WPS of Annapolis & the Northern Chesapeake Support Visiting Army Lacrosse

Apr 23, 2019

On April 13, 2019, the Army Women's and Men's Lacrosse Teams visited Annapolis to play their counterpart Navy Lacrosse teams in a double-header event. In the first game, the Army women came out on the short end of a 21-8 game to a nationally ranked (#14) Navy team but showed grit and considerable promise that will improve with time and experience. The West Point Society of Annapolis assisted the Army Women's Lacrosse Team parents in hosting a post-game tailgate at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Maryland. In all, the team and about 150 attendees enjoyed a wonderful buffet provided by Mission BBQ.

Following the women's game, the nationally ranked (#20) Army men took the field and played a very competitive Navy team to a 9-8 overtime victory. The game marked the 100th meeting for Army-Navy Lacrosse. Working together, the West Point Societies of the Northern Chesapeake and Annapolis teamed with the Army Men's Lacrosse Team parents to host a large celebratory tailgate. In all, some 300 attendees enjoyed grilling and home-cooked meals by the parents, and a Papa John's Pizza and Chick-fil-A chicken buffet provided by the two societies for the victorious team.
