Saturday, May 9th at 6:30 p.m. - The Lost Trophy: You Can't Take Back History (2015)
Syracuse University has dominated Men's Division I Lacrosse for over thirty years. With a record 11 NCAA Championships, they first made history in 1983 when they defeated top-seeded John's Hopkins, 17-16. The Orange continued to roll to an unprecedented 22 straight final fours. The 1990 team, arguably the greatest college lacrosse team ever, achieved an NCAA championship three-peat. They were led by Canadian box players, twins Paul and Gary Gait, and coached by the legendary Roy Simmons Jr. Together, along with a talented group of All Americans, they transformed the record books and the game of lacrosse forever. This is the story that celebrates a team that continues to inspire today's players and explains why there is an *asterisk next to their vacated 1990 title.
The Lost Trophy is Produced and Directed by Fred Cambria (Syracuse '85) and a member of the 1983 NCAA National Championship SU lacrosse team. Mr. Cambria is an Emmy Award winning Producer ("Assault In The Ring") and has worked with many broadcasting and cable networks including HBO Sports, Court TV, CBS, ABC and NBC News.
A Q&A with the producers will follow the screening.
This event is cosponsored with the Darien Athletic Foundation.
