SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. - Under beautiful skies with warm temperatures all day, the Mount Holyoke College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and the MHC Class Board of 2019 threw an all-campus tailgate prior to the April 13th home lacrosse game against Wellesley College.

Beginning at 12pm, the SAAC and Class Board had tents erected and games and snacks ready to go for all to come and enjoy. In addition to corn hole and Hula hoops, fans were able to take photos with the Lyons mascot, Paws. Snacks of all varieties and refreshing drinks were available as many fans made their way up to the lacrosse game. The Lyons took on Wellesley on the turf field, prevailing by a 15-12 margin behind rousing cheers and support from the fans.

A huge thank you goes out to the Lyons' SAAC, the MHC Class Board of 2019. Additionally, special thanks goes out to Ashley Chumbley, who helped organize and plan the event. She serves as the Special Assistant to the Chair/Director.
