Catholic University Men's Lacrosse Alumni Information
As proud as the coaching staff is with the progress the men’s lacrosse team has made on the field, we are just as proud of the contributions our alumni have made in graduate school and the workforce. Stretching across the U.S. and abroad, CUA’s alumni have earned themselves very successful careers in countless areas of concentration. The opportunities in and around the DC area are numerous and our graduates have taken full advantage of them once they received their undergraduate diploma.
Many of our recent graduates have continued their education, enrolling in graduate school, law school and medical school. With a strong foundation laid at CUA, these transitions to graduate school, whether at CUA or in states such as Maine, Pennsylvania, California and Massachusetts, have been quite smooth. Our alumni have also gone on to very successful careers in law, architecture, engineering, journalism, sales, and public service. Perhaps you will see them on Capitol Hill very soon or working in one of the many government offices in Washington, D.C.
In order to celebrate our alumni, each year the team hosts an Annual Alumni game. This past year, over 35 alumni attended the annual game. The tradition will continue next year on Homecoming Weekend in the fall.
The current team and the inaugural Men’s Lacrosse Club, recognize the contributions of the club’s first coach, Tom Lillis. Coach Lillis (shown at left in the bottom left corner with the 1980-81 squad), was an All-American selection in 1952 for the University of Maryland Men’s Varsity Lacrosse Team. Coach Lillis’ leadership, example, and love for the sport instilled the early club players with values that helped them nurture and sustain interest in the club, culminating in varsity status in 1999. Members of the founding club team have made gifts to the CUA team this season to honor Coach Lillis.
