Long Beach’s boys and girls varsity lacrosse teams will honor the memories of the 17 lives that were tragically lost at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The athletes will hold a special tribute to these students at the boys varsity lacrosse game vs. Oceanside on March 27 at 7 p.m., when players, coaches and spectators will wear T-shirts dedicated to one of the victims, Meadow Pollack.
Meadow’s father, Andrew Pollack, has been advocating for school safety and her family launched the T-shirt initiative as a nationwide fundraiser to help build a safe playground in the Parkland community.
The players’ shirts are emblazoned with the message LB Marines “Play for Meadow.” The game will be held on the Long Beach High School Alumni Field, located at 322 Lagoon Drive West in Lido Beach. T-shirts can be purchased at www.playformeadow.com.
