HAMDEN, Conn. - The Quinnipiac University women's lacrosse team visited the Wintergreen Interdistrict Magnet School (WIMS), where the Bobcats read with Mrs. Denise Pappa's second grade class on Thursday, March 17.

"I think it's very important that our student-athletes give back to the community," said Quinnipiac Head Coach Danie Caro. "It really makes them appreciate the opportunities they have been given, and fosters their desire to make a difference in someone else's life."

Coach Caro, Assistant Coach Brittany Hauser and the following members of the women's lacrosse team attended the elementary school: Lexi DeStefano, Kaitlyn Kelly, Lauren Matuszczak, Laura Iannotti, Christine Sinnigen, Noelle Martello, Marissa Caroleo, Kim Davis, Devon Gibney, Emily Mason, Chelsea Guerrera, and Kelsey Maroney.

"It's really fun to visit schools and read with the children," said senior Lauren Matuszczak. "We learn as much from them as they do from us. They really remind us that learning can be exciting!"

The Bobcats begin Northeast Conference play when they visit Central Connecticut State on Sunday, March 20 at 1 p.m. The game will be held at the Arute Field in New Britain, Conn.
