In November, we wrote about the men’s lacrosse team’s involvement with service organization Friends of Jaclyn Foundation.

Fast forward three months, and the team’s involvement has only grown stronger. The entire team recently headed to Weymouth, Mass., where they supported nine-year-old Thomas Archibald during his purple belt karate test.

"They cheered on and encouraged Thomas the entire time!" wrote American Kempo Karate Academy location manager Kim Ferreira to men's lacrosse coach Dan Russo. "It was such a genuine display, and they truly represented themselves and Wentworth well, and showed Thomas what being a part of a team is all about."
