On Saturday, March 7th, Middlebury took part in the NESCAC women's lacrosse Coaches vs. Cancer game. Since 1993, Coaches vs. Cancer has served as a cohesive program for coaches of all sports and levels to unite as one team in the fight against cancer.

Recently, head coach Kim Williams of Wesleyan was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. As a conference, the teams wanted to band together to show her support. Throughout the week leading up to the game and through the weekend, every team helped raise money in Williams' name to donate to the American Cancer Society. Collectively, the teams raised $15,000.
