In honor of Sean Urda, an Elwood-John H. Glenn High School student who recently passed away, the Elwood Union Free School District hosted the second annual “Elwood Classic” Lacrosse Tournament on April 11 with all proceeds
benefiting the Urda family along with two other Elwood families that suffered tragedies this year.
Sponsored by K&J Athletics, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the development of young athletes, the event featured Elwood girls and boys grades 2-8 teams competing against each other in several games of lacrosse. Coordinated by Kevin Lavey, Jonathan Guercio, Darren Szokoli and Jordan Endler, entrance into the tournament required a team fee of $600, although all teams, regardless of the fee, were able to participate.
To memorialize Urda, a poster board with his high school jersey and photos was displayed at the tournament. Elwood lacrosse players were welcomed to sign the poster with their name and jersey number. “The Elwood Classic was an amazing day for lacrosse and for members of the Elwood community,” said Guercio.
