Unsung Hero

The One Love Foundation has announced that University of Delaware men's lacrosse standout Elijah Conte has been selected as a winner of the 2016 YRL Unsung Hero Award.

"The team atmosphere is very laid back and family like, but we are also very focused and driven for success," said the club president, Jenna DiStefano. "The team consists of about 60 members, however at any given practice, there is between 15-30 people." 

"At this point, our team's strengths are on floor and vault,” DiStefano said. “We have a hardworking bars lineup who are adding difficulty to their routines in order to boost scores, as well."

The team traveled to Penn State on March 21 to compete in its first meet, the Nittany Invitational. The men’s team placed third in all around and fifth on the floor. The women's team did not place but gained valuable feedback and experience that will undoubtedly help the competitors in the future.

The team will compete at nationals on April 8-11 at the Philadelphia Convention Center. The UD team is scheduled to compete on Friday, April 10, at 8:40 a.m. for preliminaries and all day Saturday, April 11. Spectators are welcome to come out and see top talent from 186 teams from across the country.
