Alma, Mich. - The Alma College women's lacrosse team has reached the final four in the Helper Helper 2019 Team Service Challenge, as announced by the organization on Friday (April 5).
The competition began on March 15 with 64 teams in an NCAA college basketball-style bracket. Winners advance based on a program's community service hours and participation rate over the 2019 calendar year.
The Scots have outlasted Towson University women's gymnastics, Shenandoah University men's basketball, Kent State women's field hockey and Arkansas Tech University softball thus far and will face off against Arkansas Tech University women's volleyball next. Emporia State University softball and UNC Charlotte women's soccer also made the final four.
This is the most recent community service related honor the women's lacrosse team has received this year. It has previously been presented the Coach Brown Memorial award by the Alma College athletic department for the athletic team that served the most total community service hours during the school year. The women's lacrosse team has also earned Alma College's Outstanding Commitment to Service Award, which goes to the campus group that displayed the largest commitment to community service.
