Lacrosse Teams Honors Memory of Travis Manion '99 in 9th Annual Fallen Heroes Classic

The La Salle College High School Varsity Lacrosse Team defeated DeMatha Catholic High School 7-5 in the 9th Annual Fallen Heroes Classic at US Lacrosse Headquarters in Maryland.

The game honors the memory of two true American heroes: First LT. Travis Manion '99, who died in Iraq in 2007; and his best friend and roommate from the US Naval Academy, Navy SEAL, Lt. Brendan Looney (DeMatha), who died in Afghanistan in 2010.

Prior to the game, the Explorers toured the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame and learned more about Travis Manion and Brandon Looney and their ultimate sacrifice for the country.

Shane Cassel – a 2019 short-stick midfielder – was named the winner of the prestigious Travis Manion award as the La Salle player that best exemplifies the spirit and determination shown throughout Travis’ life on the playing field and in service to his country.
