The Battle at Bethpage is back! Nassau County Legislator Rose Marie Walker was thrilled to attend this year’s Battle at Bethpage featuring NCAA Men’s Lacrosse teams, the Duke Blue Devils vs. the Boston University Terriers at the Athletic Complex at Bethpage High School.

This is the fifth Battle at Bethpage with past teams including Duke, Denver, Georgetown, UMass, Drexel, St. John’s, Princeton and Cornell. Proceeds from this event go to support educational programs in both the Bethpage and Farmingdale public schools.

“Long Island has long been known as a stronghold for lacrosse”, said Legislator Walker, “Boston University and Duke are both outstanding academic institutions that also feature some of the nation’s finest athletes. This is sure to be a great game and I believe that seeing these premiere college teams in action will help our own young lacrosse players aspire to further their education through athletics.”
