On Saturday, May 5, the Gordon College women’s lacrosse team took on cross-town rival and six-time defending champion Endicott College for North Shore and conference bragging rights in the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) Championship. Women’s LAX was the only Fighting Scots team to reach conference finals during the 2011-2012 academic year, and enthusiasm for the game was high and far-reaching—members of Gordon’s newly reignited student fan club, The PIT, joined faculty, staff, and extended community rallying in support of the Scots’ pursuit of the championship hardware.
Droves of fans, including President Michael Lindsay, flooded Endicott stadium for the finals, easily outnumbering the fan base of the host Gulls. Though the Scots came up just short of the win, the team’s advance to the CCC championship game and the support showed by the Gordon community proved an emphatic step in the right direction for Gordon Athletics.
