BAYSIDE, N.Y. (Nov. 11, 2014) – This past weekend, a total of 30 LIU Post student-athletes participated in the East Coast Conference Community Clean-Up initiative at Crocheron Park in Queens.
Members of the Pioneers’ men’s and women’s lacrosse, baseball and women’s tennis teams filled up over 100 tarps worth of leaves, and tossed them in a garbage truck.
“It was a great experience to give back to the community,” stated junior baseball player Steve Teitel (Merrick, N.Y.). “I am glad that we were able to offer our time and have the athletic department help out at this event,”
Junior women’s lacrosse student-athlete Emily Delaney (Long Valley, N.J.) commented with similar words. “It was an incredible experience to give back to the community. It was a fun event and a beautiful day out…I would definitely do it again.”.
“It was a great day for the LIU Post athletic family to get out and help a city park,” Head Baseball Coach Mike Gaffney (Westbury, N.Y.) said. “It brought us all together, not just to spend time with one another, but to follow a plan and get a job done.”
