The Washington College women’s lacrosse team joined with its visiting opponent - Elizabethtown College - today to pay tribute to the Seton Hill University women’s lacrosse team. The Seton Hill team was involved in a tragic bus accident Saturday which claimed the lives of their head coach Kristie Quigley, her unborn baby, and the bus driver, Anthony Guaetta.
The Shorewomen wore crimson and yellow ribbons in their shoes, wrote “SHU” on their bodies, and made signs of support for the Seton Hill team. Prior to this afternoon’s game, both teams joined hands around the draw circle during a moment of silence. Elizabethtown is also planning to honor Seton Hill prior to its next home game on Thursday.
