Recent HQLC Boys 2018 News

SWEDESBORO, N.J. - That’s going to leave a mark, Santa.

The HEADstrong Lacrosse Club of South Jersey recently hosted a “Rip it @ Santa” lacrosse fundraiser on Dec. 27 at Locke Avenue Park in Swedesboro in support of Colin Wiederholt. Wiederholt, a 5-year-old from Mullica Hill, N.J., who was recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.

Local boys and girls from Kingsway, Clearview, Woodstown and St. Augustine Prep made every shot count as they ripped balls at Santa. Players were asked to donate $1 for every ball shot, and the HEADstrong Foundation was able to raise $3,000 to help defray some of Wiederholt’s medical expenses.

Michael Colleluori is unfortunately all too familiar with a story like Wiederholt’s. When he was in college, Colleluori saw his brother, Nick, battle non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma before ultimately passing away from the disease. Nick’s fight led to the birth of the HEADstrong Foundation, which works every day to improve the lives of those affected by cancer.

“At HEADstrong Lacrosse, we have a responsibility to not only develop great lacrosse players, but more importantly teach them more than the game,” Colleluori said. “This was a great opportunity for our families to rally around Colin in hopes to help ease their financial burden of medical expenses and to assure them that they are not alone in their fight, because no one fights alone.”

The HEADstrong Foundation wishes to thank the Kingsway Youth Lacrosse Program, Swedesboro-Woolwich Parks and Recreation and all of the participants. Without them, the event would not have been possible, and the indelible impact that the event had on the Wiederholt family would not have been felt.

Perry, N.Y. – (5/24/2017) – A few weeks removed from earning the 2017 East Coast Conference (ECC) Goalkeeper of the Year award and All-ECC First Team honors, Chestnut Hill College senior Thomas McDermott (Ridley, Pa.) has been named to the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA)/Nike Division II All-American Team.    
 
McDermott was one of five All-ECC honorees from Chestnut Hill College as the Scarlet and Gold net minder finished the regular season with an 8-4 overall record and ranked third in the nation for saves (138), eighth for save percentage (.603), and 24th in saves-per-game (11.5). He was a four-time ECC Defensive Player of the Week (5/10, 3/27, 3/14, 2/28) and recorded nine games of 10 saves or more, including a career-high 19 saves in the Griffins' 7-6 overtime triumph at #16 LIU Post on March 11. There, McDermott also recorded the Griffins' first keeper goal in program history with a long distance missile at 11:01 (5-3 LIU) of the third quarter.
 
McDermott ranks among Chestnut Hill College's top-10 all-time for wins (2nd, 16), goals-against-average (GAA) (5th, 9.92), save percentage (6th, .537), and saves (2nd, 380). Exceptional in the classroom as well, McDermott is a six-time member of the Chestnut Hill College Athletics Academic Honor Roll (Fall 2013, Spring 2014, Spring 2015, Fall 2015, Spring 2016, Fall 2016), a six-time member of the Chestnut Hill College Dean's List (Spring 2014, Spring 2015, Fall 2015, Spring 2016, Fall 2016, Spring 2017), and a two-time member of the ECC Commissioner Honor Roll (2014-2015, 2015-2016)
