The tradition of SUNY Cortland Lacrosse giving back during winter break continued this year with Homer’s Justin Wainwright and Anthony Marcuccilli from Geneva.
Following a January snowstorm, the two swapped their sticks for shovels. They offered to shovel the driveway for SUNY Cortland Alum Cheryl Ellsworth Baredo, Class of 1981.
Baredo admits she was wary of the two until they mentioned the college. The job took about 20 minutes.
Later. Baredo emailed her gratitude to President Erik Bitterbaum, then donated a thousand dollars to the Red Dragon lacrosse program.
