The Crown Lacrosse Classic, the first independent college lacrosse tournament to be held in Charlotte, will take place at the Sportsplex at Matthews on March 8 and 10.
The Crown Lacrosse Classic teams participating are the Cornell Big Red, Jacksonville Dolphins, Penn State Nittany Lions and the Towson Tigers.
The tournament features three top-five NCAA Division I lacrosse programs in No. 1 Towson, No. 2 Cornell and No. 4 Penn State.
In addition to bringing high-level lacrosse to Charlotte, a portion of the proceeds and in-game fundraising events will benefit the first responders of the Carolinas.
